Luhrmann’s ‘Great Gatsby’ Up In The Air; Bradley Cooper Still Wants In Though

Bradley CooperSo remember all the hubbub about Baz Luhrmann (I’m so totally naming my first child Baz, or my next dog, which ever comes first) wanting to direct The Great Gatsby in 3D? Well, we might have jumped the gun on that one. Turns out he hasn’t exactly made up his mind, saying “I’m not doing ‘Gatsby’ right now… Because despite what might be out there, I have made no comment about anything. So until I say it, it’s not said, you know.” I take back the “hasn’t made up his mind” comment, he seems fairly certain about not doing it.

But that hasn’t stopped Bradley Cooper from campaigning for a role. He told the New York Times that he would absolutely LOVE to play Tom Buchanan, going as far as calling him “best character in the book,” and adding that “He’s so complicated. He’s xenophobic, he’s an alcoholic, but he also understands some profound stuff about class.” Add on the fact that if Cooper got a hold of the role he’d become… dreamy. Nothing better than a sexy, alcoholic racist to brighten your day. Sounds like my old babysitters. Gotta love the South!
