Josh Lucas has joined the cast of Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar in the part of Charles Lindbergh, Deadline is reporting.

Lindbergh, a world-renowned aviator, was father to Charles Lindbergh, Jr who, in 1932, was tragically kidnapped as a infant and subsequently murdered. The Bureau of Investigation (before it was it the FBI) was largely responsible for the case, operating under director J. Edgar Hoover.

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star as Hoover, alongside Armie Hammer, Ed Westwick and Judi Dench.
