Carey Mulligan Will Play Daisy in ‘Great Gatsby.’ Was She a Good Choice?

By  | 

Despite Blake Lively‘s best efforts in trying to convince Leonardo DiCaprio that she’d be the best bet to play Daisy Buchanan in the upcoming Great Gatsby flick, the highly coveted part has gone to — drumroll please! — Carey Mulligan!

Sources are reporting that it’s a pretty much a done deal and that Carey ultimately got the part because her screen test with Leo was “amazing.”

But who was second in line to get the part? Hint: It wasn’t Blake…



It was Rebecca Hall, Blake’s co-star from The Town. Burn! Do you think Carey is a good choice for the 1920’s-set flick? Or would Blake have been better? Sound off now!
