Famous Roles: Guess Who Almost Got the Part

  • Famous Roles: Guess Who Almost Got the Part
Carey Mulligan! The An Education star recently told the UK's Little White Lies that she auditioned three times for 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.' "The first audition I did, I don’t think I was sort of in his mind for it. So the first audition I did for the casting director without [David Fincher]. And then the second was with him and the third one was with him. He is very specific. He tells you exactly what he wants you to do ... He was just very, yeah, very specific, very direct, very honest and quiet brief – with me, at least. His reputation of course is that he takes, like, 45 takes so him being brief with me was probably an indication that I wasn’t going to get the job. But that’s okay," she said.

    Thank you, I have recently been searching for info about this topic for a long time and yours is the greatest I've came upon till now. But, what about the bottom line? Are you sure concerning the source?|What i don't realize is in truth how you are now not really much more smartly-preferred than you might be now. You are so intelligent.

    Rooney Mara was so badass in this role. No one could have done it but her.

    If it went to mara because she has worked with the director she would not have been nominated.

    many stars auditioned for this role like natalie portman, scarlettt johansson, jennifer lawrence, but it went to rooney mara because she has worked with david fincher(the director) before in the social network. it'd kinda bad because if scarlett would have got the role, we would have seen her naked...
