Must be my lucky day. Third article in a row about a beautiful woman joining a great project. I’m not sure what entertainment journalism god I pleased, but I’m going to keep sacrificing to him/her/it.
Anyway, Isla Fisher is in talks to join Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby. She’ll join a cast that already includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carrey Mulligan. Fisher would be playing the mistress Myrtle of the adulterous Ben Affleck (Tom Buchanan) who is also still in negotiations to join the cast.
Can this be real? Isla Fisher and Carrey Mulligan in the same movie? Be still my stuttering heart. Seriously, be still. I’ve been having unusual heart beats. And this isn’t helping. Curse you talented and beautiful British and Australian actresses! Curse you to appear in more movies so I can see your beauty on giant screens! That'll show them.
