Pop-ed: An unofficial shortlist surfaced this week listing Sony Pictures' top choices for who should nab the starring role in their adaptation of Stieg Larsson's bestseller 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.'

The names on the list (Ellen Page, Carey Mulligan, Mia Wasikowska, Rooney Mara and Emily Browning) were less newsworthy than one that wasn't -- Kristen Stewart.

Some diehard K-Stew fans are up in arms (E!'s Ted Casablanca is one of them), but fans of both Stewart and Larsson's series should rejoice that the overexposed actress will probably be sitting this one out.
