Not a Good Role Model

Francis Cugat, illustrator for The Great Gatsby,
Scribner's 1925 edition

Let's not forget I was in the Great Gatsby novel and movie, where Tom Buchanan was not a good role model. Bruce Dern played me in the 1974 movie with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow — and Joel Edgerton will play me in the upcoming movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan.

I was almost played by Ben Affleck but he had to pass due to a scheduling conflict. Oh, I know about scheduling conflicts.
