Role: Daisy Buchanan
Played in the 1974 version by: Mia Farrow
Our pick: Amanda Seyfried
One of the many actresses reportedly being considered for the lead female role, Seyfried just might be able to pull off Daisy -- a difficult enough role that even Mia Farrow got mixed reviews playing it. Daisy is beautiful but frustrating, thoughtless but still charming. We think Seyfried could draw on her previous movies (sexy in "Chloe," empty-headed in "Mean Girls") to make the right mix of contradictions to become Daisy.
