The Great Gatsby already has a stellar cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.
Now according to Deadline is reporting that Ben Affleck has entered talks to join the cast of The Great Gatsby.
If Affleck signs on he will play Tom Buchanan, the husband of Carey Mulligan’s Daisy Buchanan, a Long Island millionaire. Affleck is now working on a project called Argo, a film about the 1979 Iran Hostage Crisis.
Affleck is a good actor and unless he is too into directing, there should be no problems to make the deal.
