Warner Bros. has finally released the trailer for one of the more anticipated films of the year, Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar."
The film chronicles the life of former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, whose voice is almost unrecognizable in the clip. The film is written by Dustin Lance Black, who won an Oscar for his work on 2008's "Milk."
The historical drama also stars Naomi Watts, Jeffrey Donovan and "Gossip Girl" star Ed Westwick, in addition to Judi Dench as Hoover's mother and "The Social Network" star Armie Hammer, playing Hoover's purported confidante and lover.
On paper, a rich girl being forced to waitress and being taught "street smarts" by another girl who has worked as a server all her life doesn't sound all that original or interesting. In fact, that partially describes the pilot of "Friends."
But that description doesn't mention that the veteran waitress, Max, is played by Kat Dennings, who stole every scene she was in in "Thor," not to mention "The 40-Year-Old Virgin."
The script for the series premiere, which definitely pushed the envelope for a CBS Monday night comedy, is filled with sharply delivered one-liners by Dennings, especially when playing off Caroline, a down-on-her-luck Paris Hilton type played by Beth Behrs.
