The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Hollywood Cast, So Far

August 17, 2010

If you have been distracted by this summer’s heat and a few other somewhat larger issues at hand, you may not have heard that casting for the Hollywood version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, based on Stieg Larsson’s book, has been moving along.

So far, the main characters, Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist, Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander and Robin Wright as Erika Berger have been cast. Stellan Skarsgård has also been cast as Martin Vanger. Craig, Mara and Wright will continue their roles in the next two films–The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest.

What we’re interested in knowing, is who will get the role of Plague?

The Swedish (with English subtitles) version of the film is quite good and the Library owns the DVD. As always though, the book is better than the film. Get your name in the holds queue or, buy the book and consider donating it to the Library when you’ve finished reading it. We could really use extra copies of all three books.
