KELSEY GRAMMER SET TO STAR IN AMAZON TV ADAPTATION OF F. SCOTT FITZGERALD NOVEL THE LAST TYCOON.

Well, co-star at least, as the role of Monroe Stahr will be played by an actor named Matt Bomer.

Let’s hope its pacing is faster than the 1976 Robert DeNiro version, which was the last film directed by Elia Kazan. Handsome production values and great cast (Grammer is playing the role that Robert Mitchum played), but Kazan’s elegiac adaptation made Barry Lyndon seem like it moved along with the brisk pace of Star Wars.
