The trailers for Clint Eastwood's historical drama 'J. Edgar' should make you think of only one thing:
Zack Snyder's 'Watchmen,' since all the color is desaturated!
Oscars! From the sweeping music to the old-man makeup on stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Armie Hammer
, 'J. Edgar' -- the Eastwood-directed biopic about FBI director J. Edgar Hoover -- is the kind of Oscar grab Martin Scorsese used to make before he finally won some hardware (see: 'The Aviator' and 'Gangs of New York,' both with DiCaprio in the lead roles). With the film out in limited release today (with a wide release coming on Friday), the folks at Funny or Die decided it was time to parody the 'J. Edgar' trailer by parsing it down to some basic truths: that DiCaprio wants an Oscar, and Eastwood is the "Oscar magnet" who can get him one. Also, Brad Pitt's 'Moneyball' campaign better watch Leo's dirty tricks. Watch ahead.
