The competition was between Joel Edgerton and Luke Evans for the role of Tom Buchanan in THE GREAT GATSBY 3D adaptation, directed by Baz Luhrmann, and the winner is Edgerton!
Deadline reported that Australian newcomer Elizabeth Debicki has also joined the cast as Jordan Baker.
Leonardo DiCaprio will play the wealthy Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire will play Nick Carraway the narrator, Isla Fisher will play Myrtle “a married woman having an affair with Buchanan”, Carrey Mulligan will play Gatsby’s love.
Ben Affleck was supposed to play Tom Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann‘s 3D adaptation of THE GREAT GATSBY but Affleck had to turn it down due to scheduling conflict with his other project, ARGO. And so now that role belongs to Edgerton
