Great Gatsby Casting: Which Actress Should Play Daisy?
Via Deadline New York: Who should play Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby Film? The actress would star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in the lead male roles. Mike Fleming from Deadline New York has the scoop on Luhrmann’s short list:
Among the names I’ve heard on Baz’s list: Keira Knightley, Amanda Seyfried, Blake Lively, Abbie Cornish, Michelle Williams and Scarlett Johansson. Aside from those names, I’ve heard that Luhrmann is also sweet on Natalie Portman, the Black Swan star who is in wide demand and recently was courted for Gravity and then dropped out of Pride, Prejudice and Zombies, a role for which Lionsgate likes Johansson and Bradley Cooper. Daisy was played in the last film by Mia Farrow, and I thought she was a bit flighty and delicate and not as manipulative as she was in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel. The film is set up at Sony Pictures Entertainment.
