Ben Affleck For The Great Gatsby

Ben Affleck 300Ben Affleck is reportedly in talks to play Tom Buchanan in the upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby.

Already confirmed for the film are Leonardo DiCaprio who will star as Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire who will be Nick Carraway and Carey Mulligan who will be Daisy Buchanan.

Depending on your opinion of Mr Affleck, this news will either be greeted as the casting of a talented American actor in a serious role, or an abomination, casting the star of such films as Gigli and Daredevil in an adaptation of one of the greatest ever American novels.

We’ll leave judgement up to you.
