DiCaprio to Star in 'The Great Gatsby': Who Should Play Daisy?

Baz Luhrmann of "Moulin Rouge" fame will be directing a new adaptation of Fitzgerald's classic "The Great Gatsby."
Leonardo DiCaprio has already been cast as Jay Gatsby, the mysterious young millionaire bootlegger who falls deeply in love with Daisy Buchanan, but there's been no word on who will be playing his iconic love interest.
Celebuzz claims that DiCaprio and Luhrmann were seen out to dinner with 23-year-old Blake Lively, who we think would be an excellent pick, if a little young to star alongside DiCaprio (though the book does describes Daisy as young).
Other rumored actresses include Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman, who could definitely pull off the old money attitude, but might have a hard time tapping into Daisy's shallower side.
Scarlett Johansson is another actress high up on the list. MTV reports that she actually auditioned for Luhrmann last week and came out pleased with her performance.
If we have a say, we'd certainly give Anne Hathaway a shot at auditioning.
