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.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby?

    what are people complaining about? Leo is a big star now. He did Inception and its real popular so why all the hate. Hes a good actor and can do lots of different types of people and shakespere to.

    Yes we saw one picture count em one where bar goes up and hugs Leo from behind and he totally ignores her. That’s one picture out if sixty, reposted on two sites. They are not hugging and kissing in any face to face romantic way and it’s not sweet at all. She is hugging him momentarily in passing.

    Amanda would make a great Daisy. She is very gorgeous. Only thing is that she looks like she could be Leo’s daughter lol. If Amanda is Daisy they need a younger Gatsby. Maybe Zac Efron?

    Nah i want Leo as Gatsby! They will have to change Amanda. But this casting is just a rumour. I doubt Leo will play Gatsby.. i don’t see him doing it personally.

    @NoFunHunting: @Genna: It’s about 4am in Israel, so you must be working a double.

    Amanda can eat dirt she;s a no talent actress who looks like she stinks. Leo is too old and annoying. I don’t like Tobey either. I say Liam Hemsworth, Kristen stewart, and Andrew Garfield for the parts.

    I personally think Bar is too pretty for Leo. I don’t think Leo is all that.

    (Sian’s inner dialogue) How do I reveal that my family is being held hostage and that unless I continually type they’ll be killed. I hate Bar. I HATE BAR! But I’m forced to say things I don’t mean. I feel…. so dirty inside.

    How can you guys make fun of Leo. I think Tobey is the one you guys should be making fun of, he looks very dorky in that pic. Amanda tends to look like she’s high all the time.

    Imagine all of the attention that kid will get from the media. Both Leo and Bar are famous around the world.

    Ms Bar Jolie Gaga Says:

    It is amazing how happy they look together. Ibiza. How romantic. Leo is so smart. As is tradition with Israeli culture, a family must truly test a man before he can be allowed the hand of his beloved. I think Leo is really happy to be in a relationship that does not care who he is because their cultural practices are so strong, those cultural practices come first. I can’t wait for the family to accept his request for her hand in marriage. How gorgeous is this:
