Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Jay Gatsby?

Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Jay Gatsby?

Leonardo DiCaprio is rumored to be up for the lead in the big screen adaptation of The Great Gatsby.

The 35-year-old Inception star would play Jay Gatsby from the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel about life during the roaring 20s, Production Weekly reports on its Twitter page.

Amanda Seyfried has reportedly been considered for the role of Daisy Buchanan, while Tobey Maguire would play Nick Carraway.

Australian director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet) is deciding whether to work on the period piece or direct a different project.

“I’ve got the script for both of them and I’m making that decision in four to six weeks, no longer than six weeks,” he recently told MTV News.

    Well there goes another Leo thread.

    I said once before that I don’t know who is more delusional, the people who insist he never sees his part time gf, or the Bar fiends who insist it’s true love and marriage and babies are just around the corner.

    I’ve finally decided it’s the Bar fiends, just because they seem so desperate to idealise the relationship so they can live vicariously through her. Someone so average in every respect (even looks, by modeling standards) gives them hope that they too can snag a rich, powerful movie star (clearly how they view Leo) and get pregnant by him, which seems to be their ultimate goal for her. That’s the best they can hope for since her career isn’t going anywhere. Even the Leo connection can’t seem to help her get decent jobs anymore.

    The shallow, opportunistic fans she attracts are just another reason to hope he finds a woman of similar talent and success in her field when he want to settle down.

    Ok, they are still seeing each other! I believe it!

    But would he have gone to Paris without the tag event? Nah.

    Btw today I walked by Madame tussauds and guess who was featured in the front window! I had to stop and do a double take because while most of the wax figures are not that realistic nowadays, they had him in a nice suit posed like he usually does, and they got his squint and eyes right- one of his eyes might be slightly off center- just a degree out of 360- I’ve noticed it beforeand they got it. Peoples eyes generally are not identical but pretty close- most good portrait artists will tell you that. Also the face had a slight discoloration / bags / circles like he does sometimes- just enough of the flaws to be real.

    I thought for a second it might be him doing a joke for ten minutes- that would be like him, but it was definitely the doll.

    Everyone was going crazy- these teenage girls were saying they definitely wanted to go in once they saw him.

    Reason#19Extended version…3am Leo’s exausted from flirting and clubbing..he just remembered hé told Barf he call her “back” 3 hours he turns on his phone and finds 10 messages from Barf ..he erases them without listenng ,but last one hears of her annoying voice..she shreiks in her Israeli accent”Where are You Im supposed to come L.A tommorow why didt you call me back” is your phone dead..well if it is ..”I left you a message on your house if you don’t get it then I can’t come till saturday(two days away)..let me know before I cancel my flight”..Leo paniclly erased her message on his phone sitting in fear…then he ran over to the answering machine staring at what seemed to be the his death sentence…Then noticed astonishly noticed There were NO messges..slyly he smiles ..with excitment and starts fist kids from Jersey shore..but stopped
    abruptly thinking what happened to the message?SOMEONE erased it,but WHO??hummm to be continued..

    Ms Bar Jolie Gaga Says:

    It is so sad to see how low and how little people think of Leo on this thread. As if a guy that powerful, that successful and that smart would stoop so low as to be in a relationship of convenience that he hides from the press. Is he not like one of the most famous actors in the world? Leo can do what he wants. And what he chose to do is to profess his love to Bar Rafaeli. Like Gwyneth and Chris, and many other couples, they know the pitfalls of walking the red carpet together and all that. Brad and Angelina waited a long time before showing up together at events in fear of what the awful paps and rumor mill would do to them. Same with Gwyneth and Chris: she swears not to walk the red carpet with her husband for fear of this. Beyonce and Jay-Z NEVER acknowledge fully their MARRIAGE and hardly talk about each other for fear of this. It is wise. Leo cares enough about this relationship to keep it private. He was used once for publicity by a manly tranny who wanted to get into the movies (if you call that taxi cab movie with Queen Latifah a movie) and he knows what it is like to be used. Now he has found love from a real woman and NO ONE not even pathetic stalkers will ruin that for him. That is why he is such a powerful actor and so successful. He is smart. Team Barleo!

    Sweet Says:

    lol that Bar vs Victoria article on the that dress is hilarious. That happens alot to celebrities but i think Bar fills out that dress better than vIctoria though. Love that they mention “aka Leo Dicaprio’s girlfriend” in the article. I always like when Leo’s name is mentioned in stuff about Bar! Sounds weird lol but i know what i mean hehe.

    lol Says:

    @131: Of course she is `aka Leo`s girlfriend`. That`s her official title and that`s her only claim to fame. It`s rather pathetic and sad than `lol` or `hehe`.

    @BarfPatrolls Says:

    Thumbs down yourselves for admiring a dumb as* ignorant conceited bi*ch such as barf freaks all need help,constantly fantasizing about a future between Leo and Barf what a f*ncken joke.He ain’t marrying her, she’s a sextoy nothin more..he’s obviously has no interest in helping her snag any roles ..he’s knows she has the brains and talent of a corpse..but Leo fans are not surprised lol… and that’s saying it nicely..that idiot needs to stay in Israel and be the nobody she is…now go back to Bellazon and discuss that FREAKS!!

    Self-talking again! But it’s getting boring! ‘They’ have nothing interesting to say! I wanna hear what’s their take on Leo’s redhead friend from Vegas!

    RKsgrl Says:

    He is smart. That’s why he hasn’t married her, or even moved her in.

    Gwyneth and Chris
    Beyonce and JayZ
    Brad and Angelina
    Leo and Bar

    Which one of these couples is not like the others? That’s all I need to say, really.

    This was a nice LEO thread, about a potential future project, not his personal life. Bar fiends invading posts like this only furthers the impression that she needs him to get attention and can’t stand on her own two feet.

    Ms bar lauded gaga -

    “I can’t heaaaaaarrr you.”

    Nah just dont buy it.

    Why do guys like Hugh grant get caught with street hookers?

    Not because they can get them or pay them, but because they go away later. Bar goes away later and she is right size for the overhead compartment.

    We just think it’s too bad that’s all

    Are you comparing bar to gwyneth Paltrow and beyonce?
    Now there’s my haha. Thanks!

    Gatsby Says:

    He sould definately play Gatsby!!! Tobey should be Nick. For Daisy if Bar Refaeli is a good actress she should be Daisy. I love when real life couples star in movies together!!

    Tiana Says:

    Ok Tobey should defiantely not be any where near this movie. That guy is a complete dork. He was a horrible Spiderman!

    Nance Says:

    I love how it’s Leo’s name that gets the title for this just jared story. Amanda and Tobey are not A list celebrities in my head.

  19. 144
    huh? Says:

    Lol @ Bar playing Daisy. Has she ever starred in a movie? They should get an actress with more experience. Bar is very gorgeous but she’s not in the acting business. Plus Leo would not want that seeing how they are extremely discreet about their relationship. Only couples who are obsessed with fame do that sort of thing.

  20. 145
    Agree Says:

    Tobey is a worthless actor. He is too wooden in my opinion. However he is not as bad as Orlando Bloom and Adran Grenier…. those are two of the worst actors in hollywood.

    Mr. Gagging on a Jolly Bar Says:

    Notice how Bar is compared to people with legitimate relationships. After 5 years those people are married or have kids. Does Bar?
    It’s 9:43. Do you know where Leo is? Nope. Just as I thought.
    The only baby I’ve been her with was a silicone doll and even it looked like it was struggling to get away. I’m sure if it were able to it would have said, “I’d rather never be a real child than have you as a mother.” *ouch*
    I’d like to point out that when we go for the jugular, we always have fresh comments and we don’t need to regurgitate the same old crap.

    Rachel McAdams is dating Michael Sheen i wish she would go back to Ryan Gosling. They were the most perfect couple. Sorry i know this does not have to do with Gatsby but i just finished reading about Rachel and Michael.

    Did you guys see the pics of Bar hugging Leo while he was excercizing? Those were so sweet. It’s posted on Yuku and Worldcrossing if anyone is interested! It was from their trip to Ibiza they made some time ago.

    ewwww Says:

    OK Leo looks very fat and bloated in this picture Jared posted of him. Damn i miss the young and hot Leo. He sure has let himself go. How he manages to still date supermodels is beyond me. For Gatsby they need someone more pretty and sophisticated looking. I think Jude Law would make a great Gatsby.

    Tinkerbell Says:

    “chose to profess his love for bar Refaeli?

    Double haha. When?

    Lets see

    Gwyneth and Chris, married for like 8/10 years, two kids

    Beyonce jay-z- married like two years.

    Brad-Angelina six kids and live together.

    Bar Leo- no ring, multiple breakups, no possibilty at all of marriage according to him, dont live together, don’t have kids , and he has never even said her name publicly.

    Oh and you think beyonce and gwyneth and Angelina get told to use separate exits and they do it???? Hahaha

    Jay z would be wearing his testes for earmuffs if he did this.

    Also IMHO jay-z and Chris married UP and brad married across.
    He left the Barfie type girl (maniston) for somebody cool. Six kids later they are going strong.

    Face it barfie is just third rate. Leo knows this and knows he can get do whatever he wants. He thinks he’s getting a bargain because she is easily manipulable. he knows very well what he is doing, but he keeps his eyes open.

    And the one who is really doing the using is bar.
    Gisele made even more dough than Leo. Like she really needs him for anything!

    Stop saying Barfie is a nice girl. She isn’t and her family sucks- viewed as white trash in Israel. Mom is piece of dried up white dog ****.
