More Hope for the Hollywood Dragon Tattoo

Fascinating story about the casting. That they will shoot it in Sweden is promising; that they will have characters speaking English with what they consider a Swedish accent is hilarious in its stupidity.
But the thing that really gets me, that I missed completely until Regis Philbin just told me, is the source of that wonderful name Mara Rooney, the NFL.
But Mara (whose full name is Patricia Rooney Mara) does have family connections: Her older sister is actress Kate Mara ('Brokeback Mountain,' 'Entourage') and two of her great-grandfathers, Tim Mara and Art Rooney, Sr., founded the NFL's New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers, respectively.
Now I am starting to get excited about Fincher's remakes!
