Baz Luhrmann confirms that he cast newcomer Elizabeth Debicki in his 3D The Great Gatsby in the role of Jordan Baker, the golfer and love interest of Tobey Maguire's Nick Carraway. This helps fill out a cast that includes Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan and Leonardo DiCaprio as the East Egg-cellent Gatsby. "Newcomer," by the way, is an understatement: Debicki is a recent Victorian College of the Arts student who has no IMDB page, Wikipedia entry, or even much in the way of Google results. (UPDATE: An interview!) Luhrmann insists she exhibits a "chemical connectivity to Tobey Maguire." Well, so does Movieline! [Deadline]
