Callan McAuliffe Joins 'Great Gatsby'

Callan McAuliffe is going to the roaring 20s in the film adaption of The Great Gatsby.

The 16-year-old Australian actor will be playing a young Jay Gatsby in the Baz Luhrman directed feature, Collider reports. Leonardo DiCaprio has the role of older Jay.

The Great Gatsby follows the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when, The New York Times remarked, “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s that resonates with the power of myth.

Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire also star.
