Rooney Mara As Lisbeth Salander: She Nails It
Most of us blogger types (myself included) were more than skeptical when David Fincher announced that he had cast Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander for the American remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. She seemed far too dainty and beautiful for the role.
Noomi Rapace played the title role in the Swedish version, and while she was petite, she still had an air of toughness about her. Originally, it was thought that she would not be able to pull off the role, either, due to her good looks.
It’s amazing what a little makeup, a lot of piercings, and haircut can do. Check out this first look at Mara looking all kinds of fierce. She’s downright scary. Mara appears on the cover of W magazine in the photo. I’d say she more than pulls it off. What do you think?
