She's so adorable. I really hope she gets the part as well, I would love to see her and Leo on screen together, I can imagine they'd play off each other so well. And wow, Blake? Really? Lined up against those actresses it amazes me that she was even a thought.

Baz Luhrmann Tells Deadline: Carey Mulligan Is My Daisy Buchanan


Quote:
Luhrmann delivered the message to Deadline, and gave me the above photo he took of Mulligan during rehearsals, when she was in Daisy Buchanan mode on November 2. "The results from the workshop process on The Great Gatsby have been very encouraging," he told Deadline. "There are a few elements that I feel need to be resolved before I would categorically state that this is my next film. Regarding the role of Daisy Buchanan, I was privileged to explore the character with some of the world's most talented actresses, each one bringing their own particular interpretation, all of which were legitimate and exciting. However, specific to this particular production of The Great Gatsby, I was thrilled to pick up the phone an hour ago to the young Oscar-nominated British actress Carey Mulligan and say to her: "Hello, Daisy Buchanan."

What happened?

Well, she tried to act.

And breasts can’t act.


I am super excited to see Carey as Daisy, her career is on fire!

Oh, and I am in love with her old (at least old looking) brown shoes she wears a lot.

I'm disappointed Baz Luhrmann got to direct this movie. Such a beautiful, ethereal story in the hands of a director who would be better of producing video clips.

I am happy about her getting the part of Daisy!

Also ^ I agree about the heels. Ugh. But she looks gorgeous in the dress.

Yay Carey!!!! I'm so excited she got the role! Thank goodness.

That Chanel dress is...shiny, but I like it on her. I'm not a fan of the shoes or the clutch, but she looks gorgeous.

Rest of the article about her winning the part
Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Filmmaker Baz Luhrmann has found his Daisy Buchanan. He has officially given the starring role in The Great Gatsby to Carey Mulligan, the Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Never Let Me Go star who'll play the manipulative heroine when Luhrmann starts production on his adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald literary classic. Mulligan was on the reception line for The Fashion Council Awards in New York when she got the call on her cell phone from Luhrmann, just a few minutes ago. She burst into tears on the red carpet in front of Karl Lagerfield and Anna Wintour. This all occurred shortly after Luhrmann showed the audition footage to Sony Pictures Entertainment execs Amy Pascal and Doug Belgrad, who were impressed by Mulligan's command of the character played in the 1974 film by Mia Farrow.


Mulligan was a late entrant to an elite list of actresses that Luhrmann met with while he conducted readings with Leonardo DiCaprio, who'll play Jay Gatsby. Tobey Maguire is expected to play his friend, Nick Carraway, who narrates the tale. No word yet on who'll play the other major roles, Daisy's husband Tom, their social companion Jordan Baker, Tom's mistress Myrtle Wilson and her gas station owner husband George.

I don't imagine Carey Mulligan when I think of Daisy Buchanan. Her face just doesn't say "Daisy" to me.

Michelle Williams is much more in line with who I'd pick to play Daisy Buchanan. She has both the looks and that delicate fragility.

Quote:
Mulligan beat out practically every young A-list actress in Hollywood for the role: Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Amanda Seyfried, Blake Lively, Michelle Williams, Keira Knightley and Rebecca Hall were all reportedly considered for Daisy.
It's a joke that Lively was even considered for the part.
