Isla Fisher is in talks to play pivotal supporting character Myrtle Wilson in Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of
The Great Gatsby
Myrtle has an affair with Tom Buchanan (as yet uncast), husband of Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan).
Fisher has been gradually building a name for herself as a gifted comedic actress, so it'll be interesting to see what she does with more dramatic material.
Before Gatsby , Fisher will be leading 'female Hangover ' Desperados , and she has recently appeared in Rango , Burke and Hare and Confessions of a Shopaholic .
Ben Affleck won't be appearing in Gatsby , though. He was said to be up for the role of Tom Buchanan, but he's had to decline due to scheduling conflicts with his next directorial effort, Argo .
It shouldn't be too difficult to find a replacement to join a cast that includes Mulligan, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire.
Despite a number of stop-starts, Luhrmann's F. Scott Fitzgerald adaptation still has a 2012 release date pencilled in.
