David Fincher Sought A Modern-Day Faye Dunaway For 'Gone Girl'
Rosamund Pike reminded filmmaker David Fincher of Faye Dunaway, and that helped the actress land the role in new thriller "Gone Girl."

The director admits he would have cast Dunaway in the role if he had made the film 40 years ago. British star Pike plays the missing wife of Ben Affleck's character.

Fincher told Playboy: "I wanted Faye Dunaway in Chinatown, where you think, 'This person has experienced avenues of pain that no one can articulate. Or Faye in Network, where it's, 'You're never going to get to the bottom of this, so just stop'.

"It's crazy how much Rosamund reminds me of Fa...

Actress Faye Dunaway is facing eviction from her New York City home following a legal battle with her landlord.

The Bonnie and Clyde star currently leases out a one-bedroom, rent-stabilized apartment in Manhattan's Upper East Side for just over $1,000 a month - almost half the going rate for the area.

However, on Tuesday, her landlord filed a lawsuit against the actress insisting the star should not be eligible for rent regulation as state laws require the tenant to use that property as their primary home and, according to court documents, he claims Dunaway spends most of her time in Lo...
