15 Stars We'd Love to See in the Upcoming Great Gatsby TV Series
Breakout out the champagne and beads: The Great Gatsby is getting a new adaptation! As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, A+E Studios and ITV Studios America are partnering on a miniseries adaptation of the classic novel, which just entered the public domain this year. No network is attached to air the miniseries yet, but it promises to be an intriguing take: not only is one of the consulting producers Blake Hazard, a great-granddaughter of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, but the series promises to expand the narrow scope of the novel, exploring the Black community of New York in the 1920s and the jazz musical subculture.
Billed in the announcement as "a more diverse, inclusive version of Gatsby that better reflects the America we live in," the new series will need just the right cast to set itself apart — and we've got some ideas already! Keep reading to see a few of our top picks for who dream of as Jay, Daisy, and Nick.
