Clint Eastwood, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Clint Eastwood has a rare perspective on J. Edgar Hoover that he brought to light in his biopic of the man, 'J.Edgar.' On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) he talked about his younger years when he would hear Hoover on the radio or read about him in the paper.

"It was a non-information age," Eastwood said of the times. "Hoover was always thought of the head cop, head G-Man, all that sort of thing."

Later, Jon Stewart realized that Eastwood himself had that same sort of presence, but he couldn't quite put his finger on it. Eastwood, though, knew exactly what it was. "You feel very safe around me," he said.

We have to say that even at 81 years of age, we still would feel pretty safe around Clint Eastwood. We're pretty sure he could still take down anyone who proved a threat with one steely gaze.
