Tobey Maguire stars as Nick Carraway in the 2013 take on The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This new Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet), features Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Joel Edgerton as Tom Buchanan, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan and arrives in theaters on May 10, 2013 in 3D. And in support of the film’s release, Warner Bros Pictures has provided this interview with Maguire on his role as Nick. Maguire also discusses the research process he went through while preparing to play Nick and what it was like to work with Luhrmann and DiCaprio.
 
The Plot:
 
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
