The makes-people-weak-at-the-knees seksi Bradley Cooper really wants to be a part of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, because to him the meatiest role hasn't been cast yet, and he's just the man to bring it to life.
He wants the role of "Tom Buchanan, the cocky blueblood husband of Gatsby's (DiCaprio) love interest, Daisy (Mulligan)."
Why does he want it?
"To me, he's the best character in the book. He's so complicated. He's xenophobic, he's an alcoholic, but he also understands some profound stuff about class. Whoever plays it has to take a gentle hand, because it could so easily be stock, where he’s a rich jerk you don't identify with at all."
We think he'd be a good fit. Bradley Cooper's range hasn't yet been tapped for an emotional role like this, and it'd be wonderful to see him get a shot at it.
With Luhrmann's direction, he could be fab!
Bradley, we hope they let you audition! Oh, and you can stop by and run lines with us anytime!
What do U think about it if Cooper landed the role??
