10 Things To Know About Joel Edgerton, The Other Other Guy In The Great Gatsby

9 May 2013 9:17 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

Sure, The Great Gatsby stars the walking meme, Leonardo DiCaprio, and his buddy Tobey Maguire but there is a third guy you should really get to know: Joel Edgerton. Trust me on this. He’s sure to be the breakout star of this film, which hits theaters this weekend.

1) In The Great Gatsby, Joel plays Tom Buchanan, husband of Daisy and the film’s main villain.

2) He also rocks some serious jodhpurs.

3) In the film, he’s reunited with Jason Clarke, who was Joel’s co-star in Zero Dark Thirty.

4) Like his director, Baz Luhrmann, Joel is a fellow Aussie. (He was born in Blacktown, a suburb of Sydney. The director was also born in Sydney.)

5) In addition to acting, Joel is also a screenwriter. He wrote the neo thriller, The Square and another film called The Pitch.
