Rooney Mara will be 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'
Playing the lead role of Lisbeth Salander opposite Daniel Craig in the Hollywood production of "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" will be ... Rooney Mara. The 25-year-old actress has a nice list of film credits, as compiled by Celebritology, and now she clotheslines the competition to add the most coveted role of the
yeardecade as the troubled, pierced goth hacker in the Stieg Larsson novels.
Still, that can't match Rooney Mara's football cred.
That's Rooney ... as in the family that has owned the Pittsburgh Steelers since forever. She is the great-granddaughter of Steelers founder Art Rooney Sr.
And Mara. You know, the New York Giants Maras. Her uncle, John Mara, is the co-owner of the team. Her great-grandfather was the founder. Her father, Timothy Christopher Mara, is the vice president of player evaluation.
