Another Great Gatsby news: according to THR, Baz Luhrmann has cast Isla Fisher as Myrtle Wilson.
The cast already includes Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as his flame Daisy, and Tobey Maguire as the narrator Nick Carraway.
Here’s how Myrtle is described in the book:
“She was in the middle thirties, and faintly stout, but she carried her surplus flesh sensually as some women can. Her face […] contained no facet or gleam of beauty, but there was an immediately perceptible vitality about her as if the nerves of her body were continually smoldering.
I like Fisher and I think she will do good in the part.
