Gallery: Our First Look At Carey Mulligan In The Great Gatsby (Plus Bonus Leo And Tobey)


After teasing us with photos of Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, the new Great Gatsby movie has finally given us the proverbial money shot today in the form of the much-debated Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan. Although mean old Jennifer thinks for some reason that Mulligan is not pretty enough to play the role, I disagree; in fact, I’d even go so far as to say she bears a striking resemblance to the Daisy that appeared in my head when I read the book. I’ll admit this has as much to do with hair and wardrobe as it does with her sparkling beauty, but still: she looks pretty! Pretty enough to act like a total asshole and have the men in her life put up with it, which (spoiler alert) they do! Do you agree?

      I can never see Leo as anyone but Leo. Whenever I watch him in anything, it’s constantly: “Oh look! It’s DiCaprio over-emoting!”

      Well, maybe not in Gilbert Grape.

        I agree! In everything but Gilbert Grape he spends the whole movie making an “I’m serious and/or constipated” face. Gatsby is not constipated. You can’t charm people in a tragic way if you’re constipated. I know because I have thus far been unable to charm anyone.

      I love Kate Winslet – so sexy and such a talented actress – so the fact Leonardo did Titanic with her saved his ass. Though I did like him in ‘Blood Diamond’, maybe because the film brought back memories of when I traversed the southern Ecuadorian Andes by land, into northern Peru just before Christmas ’84. A Peruvian army officer at the border told me the ‘Shining Path’ lay less than 200 kilometers (120 miles) in front of me. Jamie please tell your beau, I think he might find that amusing. Great Gatsby novel? Very depressing. Yeah, us guys want the woman of our dreams to love us back. Yeah how stupid, eh? I thought she was a total weasel and struggled to finish the book.
