The Oscar nominated actress of "The Education" was on the red carpet last night for the CFDA's when she received a phone call. On the other end was the director of "Moulin Rouge" Baz Luhrmann. He said "Hello, Daisy Buchanan".
This was his slick little way of signaling to Carey Mulligan that she had in fact won the role in F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 classic novel "The Great Gatsby". The film is set to be released in 2012 by Columbia Pictures. Already cast is Leonardo DiCaprio, as Jay Gatbsy and Toby Maguire, as Nick Carraway.
Personally... I'm pretty stoked for this.
