Hollywood star Jeff Bridges has been cast to play Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter in a new movie. Bridges will star alongside Kirsten Dunst and Simon Pegg in the film adaptation of British journalist Toby Young's best-selling memoirs How To Lose Friends And Alienate People. The film follows journalist Young - played by Pegg - who moves to New York to work at Vanity Fair and find love. Producer Stephen Woolley claims Bridges is integral to the movie, "He brings gravitas to the part and the notion that Carter once would have been a rebel in his younger days. "Casting Jeff as the Carter character will stop people asking all the time who got the part."
