Blake Lively & Leonardo DiCaprio: Great Gatsby Dinner Date!

Blake Lively & Leonardo DiCaprio: Great Gatsby Dinner Date!

Looks like Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio may be teaming up for the movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby!

The two actors shared dinner with director Baz Luhrmann and his crew at NYC’s The Lion on Tuesday (November 2), according to reports.

Baz is set to bring F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic book to the big screen with Leo reportedly playing the lead as Jay Gatsby.

Though Amanda Seyfried was rumored to be given the role of Daisy Buchanan, Blake is “being strongly considered,” reports Us Weekly.

    Leo’s girlfriend Bar Raphaeli(sp) is a supermodel. The Daisy role should go to an experienced actress. ya she’s pretty but most important is finding someone who can act lol.

  • RachaelPdIT

    @hearty: s

    Lots of actors start out as models. Look at the actress that is replacing Megan Fox in Transformers. That would be interesting if Leo and Bar starred in a movie together. However, as it has been said is Bar even really interesting in acting…

    RE: #147

    LOL lone Bar fan, you’ve just exposed yourself to those who haven’t had the displeasure of running into you and your many aliases yet as totally delusional and it only took one post. ;)

  • haha

    why does Leo look like a bulldog in that pic. He sure got ugly over the years…

  • omg

    @haha:

    i was thinking the exact same thing! i want my Jack Dawson back (that was the height of his hotness)

    Millions of women disagree with you. But who cares, he’s got talent and that never gets old. What is really old is the Bar troll spamming every Leo thread. I’m sorry your girl doesn’t have much of a career to talk about, but you only make yourself and her look like a fool with your constant spamming.

  • lollolo

    if bar looks at these threads she’s prob steamed over this one! seeing the headline and pic of blake and leo and the word “date”…. hahaha.

  • Barf, You Ignorant Sl*t!

    @eileener:

    You know what never gets old? Exposing Barf as the dumb as a box of rocks racist that she is. Here ya go, Barf troll, your girl in all her redneck glory

    Bar is super gorgeous and she kind of looks like Blake. Well in terms of looks alone Bar would be a better choice than Blake. But Blake wins in terms of acting experience.

  • sxx

    @omg:

    he looked gorgeous in Inception. i love mature Leo. i dont care about bar, blake… they are boring girls.

  • jjones

    When did Bar come in to the equation? That chick is hot but is she even in the running? With Leo already in the lead i doubt they’d get his girl to co-star with him lmao.

  • glamqueen

    No to Natalie Portman (overrated) No to Rachel McAdams (eww) No to Bar (she’s a supermodel, plus she’s dating leo uhhh of course people would think leo is playing favourites if his girlfriend is choosen… stupid decision!)

    I say Scarlett is the best(most experience, gorgeous, and talented)

  • ???

    Bar is a supermodel? Really? Since when? When was her last high fashion magazine cover or when did she walked the runway for a high fashion designer? When was the last time she had a major campaign that would qualify her as a supermodel? I must have missed something…
    When did Bar come into the equation? Ever since her obsessed fan started blabbing about her on this thread. Bar couldn`t score the lead in Transformers 3!

  • Barf, You Ignorant Sl*t!

    You can tell the Barfbot is super nervous about Leo being in the company of gorgeous, TALENTED women. She’s dissing great actors like Portman and McAdams in favor of the only *MARRIED woman in the bunch, Scarlett, or Barf. No one but the Barfbot would bring Barf up, and even she knows how ridiculous she sounds. She can’t even get decent job as a model anymore.

  • Genna

    this is hilarious. The israeli media are joking around that Bar should hide her wardrobe from leo in case he brings the Hoover role to their love life lol

    Hi Team Leo!
    (Friendly waves and good vibes to SMH, CanadaGirl, Brasil, Red Velvet, Tinkerbell, Leo Dicaprio Fan etc). I really hope that they get this Daisy thing right. Adapting a classic is risky enough let alone one that has had a famous adaptation already. I have no preference as to whether the part is played by an established hollywood player or an unknown but whoever plays Daisy (especially opposite Leo as Jay) needs to be an ACTRESS. The Great Gatsby should not be something that you break your teeth on.

    Either way, Leo seems to have a lot of brilliant stuff coming up which I am really looking forward to and should result in a lot of screen time :)
    I wonder what order the projects will be be done in? I read in the Chicago Sun times that Michael Shamberg (who is currently producing Soderberg’ ‘contagion’ and will be one of the producers on devil in the white city) said that the hope is to get to work on the project asap. Of course, Leo may have to change his physicality for Hoover. So, who knows what way around the projects will be done. But I am looking forward to them nonetheless. Have a lovely weekend. xo

  • Red Velvet

    Thank for the shout out dr brown.
    I really hope they get the right actress for Daisy too, because sometimes even though the movie is good and majority of the cast is fit, if one of the main is totally mis-casted, the movie will be a total disaster. Like john wayne as Genghis Khan, for me it’s WAY to weird and a major turn-off.

  • dr brown

    @Red Velvet: Hi Red Velvet. Exactly! I think we need to keep our fingers crossed on this one. If they get it wrong, it could be a real problem and that would be such a shame.

    It can be really distracting and disappointing when all of the cast is not right. I remember the first time I watched gangs of new york (which I love by the way). As an Irish woman myself I remember not particularly ‘feeling’ Cameron Diaz in the roll of Jenny. I know that she seems lovely and lots of fun in real life and that she and Leo get along really well but there just did n’t seem to be enough warmth, depth or damage if that makes since. Therefore, while I cared about Amsterdam I did not really connect with the love story. In fact, when I wernt to the cinema to watch that film I distinctly recall several of the men around where I was sitting saying out loud “that should have been that girl from Titanic.’

    It can also be especially hard to cast right opposite Leo because there are few actresses who seem to hold their own. I remember on the red carpet at the london premiere of Revolutionary Road Leo specifically said that he would not and could not have done that piece of work with anyone other than Kate. Then on Charlie Rose he said that they felt able to jointly go to the places that they had to in that film because he knew that she was the actress who would be able to take all that he could throw at her and to give it right back to him.

  • dr brown

    oops! I meant role of Jenny not roll of Jenny lol

  • LEONARDO DICAPRIO FAN

    It seems to me he always makes two movies in a row somehow- like he has 2 movies in one year, which is actually very rare. Even more rare is that both of them are successfull (like Catch me if you can and gangs of new york, Shutter island and Inception, etc).
    He has basically proven to be one good actor with brains. But I personally think his father has so much to do with this, since he is always his last advisor regarding movie projects (Leonardo said it himself in many interviews).
    My personally favourite Leonardo looks are:
    1) Marvin’s room
    2) Romeo and Juliet
    3) Blood diamond
    4)The Departed
    But his german grandmother Helena (she past away as you know) always told him – she liked his looks in Titanic and she always told him she wanted him to have same haircut as then. He actually todl that on the German TV in an interview, he joked about it.
    The only thing that I don’t like about him, is that even in professional interviews he is always dead serious, never makes even innocent jokes and has this look on his face, as if he isn’t even there. Maybe 4-5 years ago it wasn’t so, but in the last couple of years he especially only says one and the same line over and over.
    But of, course, he is a great actor etc etc so every movie with him is a-must-see-intelligent-kind-of-movie.

  • CanadaGirl

    Hi all. It’s Friday and I’m super excited. Have a great weekend Leo-fans.

  • @BRIGHTSIDE IS THE TROLL

    mmmmmmmmmmm red velvet and dr brown nice new names BRIGHTSIDE TROLL

  • Red Velvet

    @@BRIGHTSIDE IS THE TROLL: Seriously ? I didn’t even mention your idol’s name is my last post. You should start popping that Valium pills

  • @Red Velvet

    #188 is a looney just like the other bar fans so just ignore the pointless comments from this person. You are right he/she definitely needs pills! LOL!

  • dr brown

    @Red Velvet: Hi Red Velvet. I am just choosing to ignore whoever that is. Very strange considering that none of our posts were addressed to them. Anyway, hope you and the rest of team Leo are having a good weekend. Several Leo threads in a matter of days. Thanks JJ you are spoiling us :)

  • dr brown

    Hi there. Forgot to say – I just read an interview that Clint Eastwood gave a few days ago while promoting his new film ‘Hereafter.’ It notes that Clint is getting ready to direct Leo for the first time and Clint confirmed that they will begin work on Hoover “early next year.”

  • fat GAY queenie

    Israelis are starting shi*t again! If they can’t get a real picture of him – he’s not there!!!!

  • SMH…

    Hi Team Leo! Hope you all are enjoying your weekend :)

    So what’s the deal with these reports of Leo being in Israel? I agree with #194, the proof is in the pictures…if he’s even there.

  • CanadaGirl

    Hi Leo-fans: SMH. Tinkerbell, dr Brown, Red Velvet, LEONARDO DICAPRIO FAN, eileener, Brasil, (the real) lol, etc.
    .
    He’s not in Israel. The press would have a field day. They’re just trying to diffuse any cheating, possible break up rumours because of Blake.

  • SMH…
  • dr brown

    @CanadaGirl: Hi CanadaGirl, SMH and the rest of team Leo! Sorry I could n’d reply sooner (I’ve no computer at home). Anyway, this thing about Leo going to Israel – obviously until we see photos of anything, we can’t confirm it. However, I thought I would share the information that I found anyway with the proviso that we cannot check it’s authenticity but here goes. Leo’s Yuku fansite is full of pepole (unlike most of us here) who like Bar and so they post articles from the Israeli media all the time.

    According to an Israeli article (http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-3980460,00html) Leo arrived in Israel (Saturday I think) to collect Bar and they will go from Israel to Egypt on holiday together to celebrate his 36th birthday (his birthday is this coming thursday).

    The Israeli media is also apparently saying that Bar has been unabled to return to the USA over this last few weeks because of “bureaucratic” problems. However, there is no more detail given on this).

    I recall posts on here earlier this year telling us that Bar would be out of Leo’s life by his 36th birthday. Unfortunately, this does not seem to have happened. It is so sad that a man so talented and admirable in many ways has such poor taste in women. I hope all comes right in the end.

    Ultimately, of course, whereever Leo is right now be it Israel, Egypt or somewhere else, he has to be back in L.A. by 14 November because this is when he is due to appear in person (with Scorsese appearing via satellite link from London where he is filming Hugo Caberet) at the end of American Cinematique’s 2 day (13-14 Nov) retrospective of the Scorses/Dicaprio collaborations.

    I suppose we should all brace ourselves for some Leo and Bar pics soon just in case the Israeli reports are right. As if it’s not bad enough that it’s monday morning (:

  • french

    still no pics

  • dr brown

    @french: Hi French. Yeah I know. Like I said – we can’t be sure of any of the reports without pics. Perhaps Bar has n’t had a chance to tip off the paps yet lol. If he has n’t been seen around LA or NYC for a while, he may be with her. Who knows? Either way, he will be back in LA for the American Cinematique event at the weekend. We should at least get pics of him from that.
