The 'Spider-Man' actor has been caught on camera wearing sleek three-piece suit complete with a bowtie and a straw hat while filming a scene on the set of the novel-adapted movie in Sydney.
A newly shared on-set photo from "The Great Gatsby" has revealed how Tobey Maguire will look like as Nick Carraway. In the image, the "Spider-Man" actor looks sleek in three-piece brown suit complete with a bowtie and a straw hat while filming a scene on the set in Sydney, Australia.
Instead of donning shoes that match his dapper period look, Maguire was snapped rocking a pair of Nike trainers. At some points of the day, he was also spotted busy with his iPod. During the filming day, cast and crew were working hard despite the rainy weather on the set, which was transformed to look like Long Island, New York.
In the movie, which costs an estimated $150 million, Maguire's Carraway is described as a young man from Minnesota who moves to New York City in the summer of 1922 to learn about the bond business. His neighbor in West Egg is a mysterious man named Jay Gatsby, who lives in a gigantic Gothic mansion and throws extravagant parties every Saturday night.
Leonardo DiCaprio takes on the role of Jay Gatsby. Joining Maguire and DiCaprio in the cast ensemble are Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Callan McAuliffe and Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan. Directed by Baz Luhrmann, the drama has been rescheduled to open in U.S. theaters on December 25, 2012, where it will show up opposite "Django Unchained", which also stars DiCaprio.
