* DawsonCasting: Carey Mulligan (26) as as the 23 year old Daisy and Leonardo [=DiCaprio=] (36-37 during filming) as the 32 year old Jay Gatsby, who also play those characters in flashback when they are 18 and 27, respectively.

* GeniusBonus:
** The bandleader at Gatsby's parties is named Trimalchio, which is a shout-out to ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satyricon Satyricon]]'' where a character by the same name is famous for his elaborate parties. Additionally "Trimalchio" and "Trimalchio in West Egg" were possible titles for the book.
** At the end of the "'Can't repeat the past'? Of course you can!" scene, Gatsby walks between a statue of two ravens which could represent [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huginn_and_Muninn Oden's ravens Huginn (thought) and Muninn (memory)]] -- appropriate since Gatsby's thoughts are always on his memories of Daisy.
* WhatMightHaveBeen: Creator/BenAffleck was offered the role of Tom Buchanan, but had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts with ''Film/{{Argo}}''.
