Carey Mulligan Cast in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps

Last month when we reported that Javier Bardem had joined the cast of Oliver Stone's Wall Street 2, now known as just Money Never Sleeps, there was still one big role that hadn't been cast. In the sequel, Shia LaBeouf plays Jacob, a young Wall Street trader who's engaged to be married to Gordon Gekko's estranged daughter. Latino Review is reporting that British actress Carey Mulligan has been cast as Winnie, Gekko's daughter, not only giving her a chance to break out in a big way, but securing her another "juicy" role (that lots of other actresses wanted) after blowing everyone away in An Education at Sundance earlier this year.
Mulligan, seen above, is just cute as a frickin' button, and one of the best young up-and-coming actresses currently working today (and I can say that having actually seen An Education). Most people don't know her yet because the films with her break out roles haven't actually hit theaters yet. However, I guarantee that by next year, she'll be huge, not only because she's gorgeous, but because she is such a talented actor. There's even talk that she could get an Oscar nomination for her performance in An Education as the 16-year-old Jenny. And now that Mulligan is in this cast, I am very excited to see Money Never Sleeps come together.
