Baz Luhrmann casts Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby!

Casting News: Baz Picks Carey to Play Daisy Buchanan!

The Great Gatsby has locked in a leading lady! Baz Luhrmann tells Deadline Hollywood:
<blockquote> 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.


Carey received the call while she was at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards and immediately burst into tears. Bless. The competition for the role was intense and she reportedly beat out Blake Lively and Amanda Seyfried for the part. Carey will star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, who will play Jay Gatsby, and Tobey Maguire, who will play his friend Nick Carraway. Do you think Carey will make a good Daisy?
