Too bad.

Earlier this month, we were excited to learn that Ben Affleck was in talks to play Tom Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming feature film adaptation of The Great Gatsby.

We thought he'd be PERFECT for the part, which is why we're disappointed to announce that he won't be joining the film.

Due to scheduling conflicts with Affleck's upcoming directorial effort, Argo, it won't be possible for him to do both films.

A new Buchanan hasn't been chosen yet, but it looks like Luhrmann might recruit Australian actors for some roles, so perhaps Affleck will be replaced with an actor from the land down under.

We just hope they make a good choice. Ben Affleck would have definitely been a great fit for that role…

Who do U think would make a good Tom Buchanan?

    No one! Hollywood studios need to quit doing f*$%#@g remakes and do something original before they kill off the medium altogether!!!

    He's creepy looking - never smiles, like he's mad or unhappy. What's up with that?

    Armie Hammer, from The Social Network (he played the Winklevoss twins) would be the PERFECT Tom Buchanan. He is the first actor to come to mind.
