Absolutely love Carey Mulligan in terms of acting, but really cannot see her in this part…

bad idea. i’m not sure if the casting director really understands this novel. tobey macguire is a good choice and i like leo. i hate the age difference between leo and carey mulligan though; she’s not supposed to be so much younger than him. and ben affleck as the arrogant a-hole tom buchanan? too much of a stretch. definitely should be bradley cooper, all the way.

hollywood must be out of orignia ideas. all they can make are cartoons and re-makes of already Oscar winning movies.

without fresh talent this will do mediocre at the box office, no doubt. and omg, bradley cooper, get serious.

Ugh! Carey Mulligan as Daisy?! No no no. She essentially ruined Money Never Sleeps. Hollywood bungles another movie that had potential to be good.

Ben Affleck and Toby Maguire are the only casting choices I like. I like Leo, but can’t see him as Gatsby nor with Carey Mulligan who I think is completely wrong for Daisy.

Wow! Great cast, cant wait for this movie
