British actress Rosamund Pike just landed one of the most sought-after roles in Hollywood, so maybe you should get to know her.
David Fincher, the man behind "The Social Network" and "Fight Club," is adapting Gillian Flynn's 2012 best-selling novel "Gone Girl" for the screen. Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, and Emily Blunt were among the actresses being considered for the role of a woman who mysteriously disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, but it's 34-year-old Pike who beat them all for the coveted spot, set to co-star with Ben Affleck (as her duplicitous husband).
While Pike appeared in "Jack Reacher" with Tom Cruise, played the goddess Andromeda in "Wrath of the Titans," and co-stars in the upcoming comedy "The World's End," it's expected that "Gone Girl" will move her up to the A-List.
