Lisbeth seems to drift between psychotic hard-case to soft-and-sweet girly girly, so it would definately test Ellen's abilities, but she could certainly pull it off no problem. It would be like mixing the ruthlessness of Hayley Stark with the vulnerability of Bliss Cavendar.

But alas, I think I've seen one too many reports that say otherwise:

Lisbeth strikes me as similar to Tracey Berkowitz, she seems a tad disturbed, I think it's a role she could nail, but like I said it's probably preferred not to have someone so well-known and cute playing an unknown and ugly character.

I told you 15 days ago that Ellen won't get the part :cheekygrin: So this is actually no surprise for me. I hope Fincher is happy with this and it will turn out to be the right choice. Of course, it's a pity Ellen didn't get the chance to play Lisbeth Salander, but I'm sure there are still many other interesting roles for her and the world keeps spinning :yellowink: .

I knew she was almost definitley not Lisbeth, I just always like to have hope. Every film I see without her in always loses a point purely because it doesn't have her in it.

I saw the original movie earlier this summer and enjoyed it a lot. I think Ellen could have been a great fit for the role, but congrats to Rooney Mara.

Well it might be for the best, as an American I can admit we have a tendency to screw up great foreign ideas (see Dinner For Schmucks, probably ok but the original was considered fantastic).
