    1. For Nick I would choose Ben Stiller because he is good looking and he looks like a “normal” guy who could be nick narrating the story
    2.For the role of Daisy I would choose Keira Knightley because she is very beautiful and when I see her I imagine Daisy.
    3.Anne Hathaway would perfectly fit in the role of Jordan or Disy although she is not blond she is very beautiful and looks elegant.
    4.Hayden Leslie Panettiere would look nice in Myrtle’s role ’cause she it attractive and in her look I can see that she would act well like the one who goes with another man and all that..
    5.In the role of Tom Buchanan, I think George Clooney would be just right. He gives the impression of a being old but very elegant,serious, like the wealthy man like tom in 1920s and I imagine him perfect for toms role
    6.For the role of Gatsby I would choose maybe Leonardo Di Caprio, but i am not very sure about it because it doesn’t convince me fully, but I can’t think for now of anopther option
    7. For the role of George Wilson I have no ideaaa..
