But Seriously, What's Wrong With Rebecca Hall?Just to give you an idea of how ridiculous casting roundups can be-- just eleven days ago, news broke that Keira Knightley, Amanda Seyfried, Blake Lively, Abbie Cornish, Michelle Williams and Scarlett Johansson were all in the mix to play Daisy in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" with the director apparently keen on Natalie Portman. Fast-forward less than two weeks later and now apparently Carey Mulligan, not named in any previous reports, is the frontrunner. Great job, internet.

Amanda Seyfried, Blake Lively & Abbie Cornish Also In ContentionDo these names seem familiar? Yep, its the go-to crop of actresses that seem to circle every major project and you've probably seen them crop up as potential leads for Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" and Ridley Scott's "Alien" prequel. So not really much of a surprise then that another high profile project, Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" now has these usual contenders being linked to the part of Daisy. If you had asked us to guess what names would be considered, these faces probably would've been right up there.
