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.

i’d prefer amanda seyfried! sorry blake fans, but blake really can’t act!

If Blake plays Daisy, that’s one big risky role. You can’t effed up with Leo’s movie. You just can’t.
Soooo many people watch his movie with high expectations and if people judge you are not good, you are not goo actress forever.

@frofsky:

maybe they call her that because she had an affair with Weistein to get roles…and it’s so strategical to dump Penn now….

I don’t like Blake, i think she is ugly and she is a bad actress

Great choice! I love Leo he is in a league of his own. IMO one of the best actors out there…. Blake is young and regardless of of the other comments she’s a not bad actress, (I’ve seen worse) as long as the chemistry is right between them I think she can pull off being daisy.

Look-wise, I think she would be great. Acting-wise, not so much!

-According to New york daily news, Scarjo as Daisy:

Scar-Jo’s rivals are said to include Michelle Williams, Amanda Seyfried and Blake Lively, but our source says the voluptuous vixen auditioned for Luhrmann opposite Leo DiCaprio (who will play Jay Gatsby) at a digital film studio in SoHo on Monday and was “very happy” with how it went.

Afterward, paparazzi shot Leo and Baz having lunch at Cafe Gitane. Johansson didn’t join them, but hopefully she’ll be in the frame when the cameras roll.

Rachel McAdams as Daisy Buchanan, she can keep this a billion dollar film. Blake Lively would make this a billion dollar movie, but the character Nick is actually more important than Daisy.

Bad choice i think, i don’t really know Blake but i don’t see her playing this role, Leo as Gatsby is an amazing choice though, this man can play everthing, i can’t wait to see this movie.

I don’t know about blake but whats really important is the combi of Blake and Leo. That lunch to see if they connect I can see that better the with Amanda S. I think Leo is a great actor and he has the charming factor in his roles, yes Robert is a different charm more romantic than Leo.

oh please don’t choose blake as leading role,,she even can not act,,so stupid,,watch the town!!ughh…scarlett johansson is better 1 million x than this ugly donkey face girl…………..oh no!!

Amanda is a much better choice. Blake doesnt look like she is from the roaring 20′s..but Amanda can pull that off. Hope the right people are cast..like Leo-perfect!!! I can’t wait for this movie either way!

I think she’s gorgeous, BUT putting Blake in The Great Gatsby is a very, very bad idea. Clearly she got this part with her looks. Leo on the other hand has been in the industry for years and has been in countless hit movies, so he is an obvious choice.

amanda is better than blake…blake can not act!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!stupid

oh please no she’s such a lousy actress!

i don’t like natalie for this part. she is a great actress, but daisy is just too weak of a character perhaps for her. blake – awful choice (even worse than seyfried). michelle williams? rachel macadams even perhaps?

If Blake is gonna be Daisy I`m definitely NOT going to see this movie even though I like Leo as an actor. She is so not right for that part and I doubt I could suffer through a whole movie watching this annoying `actress`.
But if the DailyNews article is correct Blake doesn`t have the part yet – dinner or not. Scralett is a much better choice than Blake but I really would like to see Natalie as Daisy.
The truth is ALL the actresses being considered for this role are way too young next to Leo.

I assume that Baz and Leo met all the actresses considered for the role but the only time it made it to the gossip sites is when Blake Lively had dinner with the director and the leading man. I bet this publicity works for this newly single wannabe actress. Her being Daisy is so absurd that I have to question Baz and Leo`s sanity even for considering her. This has to be a joke!
Daisy should be someone closer to Leo`s age.

Now we know why she dumped her bf. She thinks that she could have an opportunity and date Leo.

Amanda can act???? since when? did you see mean girls? how impressive……..lol and um sorry I dont want to see her fat pale, bug eyed face. she does not fit the part at all. Rachel McAdams would be an exquisite choice. beautiful,talented and suits the classic look to perfection. Blake she is a star in the making.
People assume she is a *wh*re over Leighton bc she is tall,tanned and blonde. plain jane brunettes with fat doll faces like leighton are more relate able than a girl like Blake, lol lets face it.

I would love to see Leo dump Barf for Blake.

Wow, it seems like a Leighton-hater is here. LOL!
Blake as an actress is a joke. She is annoying without any talent except for her girl. Leo seems to prefer women who base their careers on their implants ( Bar and Blake )… Leo and Blake a couple? Yet another joke!

* except for her girls.

Is Blake 30 years old? looking haggard for a 24 year old.
too much surgery.

I really like the Great Gatsby and think Baz would make a great movie and I also think Leo would be good if not great. He has proven himself to be a decent actor but Blake on the other hand would be a real disappointment to any fan of the book because she cant act to save her life. Yes she is beautiful and Vogue and Ben Affleck seem to want to push her down our throats with how great and down to earth she is but its getting tiring. It is sad that to become high profile now a days all that is required is beauty and expensive clothes for everyone to become A list as Blake has. How superficial we all have become that talent is not what gets you any where in life. There are the Scarlet Johansons, Blake Lively, and Megan Fox’s of this world that get far on what? all because the media overhypes them and tries to convince us how great they are >NOT

Ewwwwwww! She can’t act to save her life. She has no class at all!
