Leonardo DiCaprio, the new Jay Gatsby?

"The Great Gatsby" has been one of my favorite books since I read it in high school, and now it looks like it will be coming alive on the big screen in a big way. Collider.com reported last week that rumored cast members for the 2012 film include Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and Amanda Seyfried as Daisy Buchanan. Add in the fact that Baz Luhrmann owns the rights to the novel and could serve as director, and you've got yourself a hit. These actors were made to play these parts, and I would be seriously disappointed if the rumors aren't true.

Who would you want to see in a "Gatsby" movie? Will the new film be better than the 1974 adaptation?

Seyfried can't act. Natalie Portman as Daisy would be wonderful.
