Rooney Mara is Lisbeth Salander
Everybody who has read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo or the other books or seen the first two films is waiting to know who is cast as Lisbeth Salander ("The Girl"). Well the secret is out: it's Rooney Mara. I know that her name will not resonate with film goers, but it certainly will with football fans. Her pedigree is amazing. One of her great grand fathers was Tim Mara, the founder of the New York football Giants, and her other GGF was Art Rooney, founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
She looks the part, I just hope she can hold her own with Daniel Craig, who plays journalist Mikael Blomquist and Robin Wright, Blomquist's editor and occasional lover. Should be fun.
