Great Gatsby star Tobey Maguire: People are still obsessed with money and class
Friday 10 May 2013 6:00 am

Some actors seem born to stardom, their destiny somehow written in the stars. Tobey Maguire would be the first to admit he was not.

Left to his own devices, he’d have been a chef, except that his mother (who gave birth to him aged 18) famously offered him $100 (£60) to try acting instead of a cooking class. Fast forward more than 25 years and Maguire, now 37, is recognised worldwide, thanks in particular to the Spider-Man trilogy (2002-2007), which made him both wealthy and a bona fide movie star.

Tobey Maguire Interview For ‘The Great Gatsby’


‘The Great Gatsby’ follows F. Scott Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, in the midst of the roaring twenties, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. 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, he tells a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

Baz Luhrmann directs the ‘The Great Gatsby’ from a screenplay co-written with frequent collaborator Craig Pearce, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel of the same name. Lead by Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, ‘The Great Gatsby’ also stars Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Joel Edgerton and Carey Mulligan as Tom and Daisy Buchanan, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson, newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker, and Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim. ‘The Great Gatsby’ arrives in cinemas on May 10th in the US and Canada, with an international rollout on May 15th (May 16th in the UK).

Tobey Maguire Joins a TV Series

Kristen Wiig and Tobey Maguire join 'The Spoils of Babylon'

April 30, 2013
By: Mae Abdulbaki

Kristen Wiig ("Bridesmaids") and Tobey Maguire ("The Great Gatsby") have signed on to play the lead roles in "The Spoils of Babylon," six half-hour episodes that will air later in 2013.

IFC describes the episodes below:

“The Spoils of Babylon” is an epic story in the vein of “The Thorn Birds” and “Winds of War,” “The Spoils of Babylon” spans three generations, taking viewers from the oil fields of Texas to boardrooms in New York City, through world war battlefields and velvet sheeted bedrooms. As the story unfolds, the booze, the passion and the heartache lead to illegal arms deals and international espionage with the Shah of Iran not to mention the creation of the doomed sub-­prime market.

“The Spoils of Babylon” is a television adaptation of a best-­selling epic novel by fictional famous author Eric Jonrosh (played by Will Ferrell). The blowsy century-­spanning saga chronicles the sexy and dramatic lives of a family who made their fortune in the oil business.

Andrew Steele will be writing the screenplay to be directed by Matt Piedmont ("Casa de mi Padre").
