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.
