New image from Lurhmann’s Great Gatsby


Baz Lurhmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby continues toward a release at the end of this year, with a new picture (not the one above) released today showing leads Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio (Nick Carraway and Jay Gatsby, respectively) sitting beside Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan, who described his role in the film on Twitter:

I play Meyer Wolfsheim for about a few seconds… by the time you look down on your popcorn to pick another morsel, I’d be gone from the film…he, he…kinda short service…

The host of the Indian Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (Kaun Banega Crorepati) also noted that DiCaprio “be soo gorgeous” and “talkin’ to Spiderman and D (Leonardo), was pretty darn okaaaay!”

Wolfsheim is Jewish in the novel but I guess the part has seemingly been altered in Lurhmann’s 3D extravaganza.
