That's what the t-shirt of some guy -- a dispatcher for a PUJ -- says while I was waiting for my ride that would take me to Citilink and from there to Ayala Center. And it reminded me that there's supposed to be a movie made on the novel, F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

So I was pleasantly entertaining myself on trying to picture which actors would play which characters. I was thinking Leo could play Gatsby, or if not him, then Michael Fassbender simply because Hollywood can't seem to get enough of Fassy. At least, for now. And Nick could be played by Andrew Garfield or Tobey Maguire. Yes, the two Spidey, but Nick is supposed to exude that nice guy vibe even though the character is not exactly morally superior to the others, and these two actors...well, Peter Parker is a nice guy. And Daisy? Well, I thought Emma Stone could pull her off, if given the chance.

Then I got home and I looked up The Great Gatsby on Wikipedia and saw that the movie is going to be made by Baz Luhrmann (I'm a bit leery of that after Australia) and Leo's on board. So are Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. I don't have to guess which characters these people are playing.

I think I might want to watch the other movie adaptations of this book. There's one by Francis Ford Coppola, starring Robert Redford. And the made-TV movie starring Toby Stephens (who played Mr. Rochester in the BBC series, Jane Eyre).

The first time I read F. Scott Fitzgerald, it was his not-so-successful book, The Beautiful and Damned. I loved that book. It was peopled with so many interesting characters.
