Gemma Ward Signs on for The Great Gatsby

Supermodel Gemma Ward has just signed on to star in The Great Gatsby. Director Baz Luhrman (the man behind Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge) is taking on the seventh film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Era classic, and has cast womanizer Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, nice guy Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, and the lovely Carey Mulligan for the part of the female lead, Daisy Buchanan.

Since the part of Daisy is off the table, there's some speculation that Ward will play the role of Catherine, a redhead. Based on hair color alone, Miranda Kerr might have been a better choice for the part, particularly because she's been itching to get her face into movie theaters. But Catherine is a minor part, and Gemma was promised a meatier role so I'm betting that this possible supermodel drama is off the table.
