Gemma Ward Joins Cast of 'The Great Gatsby'

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The Baz Luhrmann remake of The Great Gatsby has barely even started filming, but we're already dying to see Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio in 1920s outfits. The newest addition to the cast is model Gemma Ward, who will be playing the minor role of Catherine. Catherine is the sister of Tom Buchanan's mistress Myrtle Wilson, who will be played by Isla Fisher. This isn't Gemma's first foray into acting - she also played a mermaid in the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Though Gemma never appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, we still think she and renowned modelizer Leonardo would make a great couple.
