Auditioning for David Fincher is fun


12th January 2011

Slam yer peepers on the first official(ish) pic of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander 2.0, plus details of what she did to get the role. Oh Fincher, you so crazy!

While we were all busy gawping at the Yogi Bear trailer for the 87th time, W Magazine - whatever the fuck that is - managed to land a rather tasty exclusive and nab some time on set with David Fincher as he shot his take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, or 'GiWiDraTat' as all the cool kids are calling it.

Fincher - who, with three serial killer movies under his belt, never struck me as the most jovial of directors - comes across quite well in the feature, but he let slip an interesting nugget on exactly what was expected of actresses when they auditioned for the role of Lisbeth Salander.

"It was hard...We had five or six girls audition with the rape scene. The girls had to kick a dildo up his ass. That's Salander's big scene, and we had to see if they could do it."
Man, I really, really hope the rumours are true and Emma Watson auditioned like everyone says she did. There's no way any men on that set watching Hermione ram a massive black dildo up a guy's butt weren't filming that on their phone while hiding a giant boner. "Upthearsicus!"

As promised, here's the first pic of Rooney Mara, her who was bestest at raping, in character for the first time. It's pretty much spot on: the grumpiest, most surly IT specialist whose time you ever wasted.
