A couple of weeks (months?) ago, I ran a post about who was going to play Jeff Buckley in his highly anticipated biopic.  Many thought Rob Pattinson was going to get the role.  I (and many others) wanted James Franco to play the role, considering how amazing an actor he is…oh, and the uncanny resemblance the two share.

Well.  Neither party are going to get their finger in that pie (don’t ask).  Why?  Because the role of Jeff Buckley, one of the most iconic singers of our time (ish), has gone to Penn Badgley…

Yes, as in bumbling, fussy Dan from Gossip Girl.

Now, don’t get me wrong I like Penn.  He has a bit of a quirky charm.  Kinda like the American version of Hugh Grant perhaps (but without the hooker problem on the side…I hope).  But is he Jeff Buckley?  I don’t think so.

What do you think?  Happy?  Disappointed?  Willing to join me in a trip to Hollywood with your favourite throwing chair?  Let me know!

Leighton to join forces with Vera Wang!

Leave a comment

Leighton Meester, the devilishly evil Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl, has been announced as the new face of Vera Wang’s fragrance that is to be released in the middle of next year.

So why does Leighton get this awesome gig?  Well according to Vera it’s because her

“beauty, talent and spirit will inspire all the young women that I hope will enjoy this passionate, new young fragrance.”


At the same time co-star Blake Lively is rubbing shoulders with the A-listers after she was spotted having dinner with none other than Leo DiCaprio (ouch on Penn Badgley’s behalf) and “bad girl” Taylor Momsen continues with her rock star concerts.

Has anyone else noticed that while the girls are doing something with their careers the boys from Gossip Girl are well…not?

Penn and Blake Split :(


Penn Badgley and Blake Lively, aka Dan and Serena from Gossip Girl, have appeared to have called it quits on their three year relationship.  The two, who have been dating for almost the entire span of Gossip Girl, have said that they want to remain “friends” and will keep it professional on the set.

While this is sad to hear, it would be hard dealing with your ex on a daily basis…particularly if their character counterparts decide to reignite their relationship.

Does anyone else kinda hope for a hissy fit on set?  I know I do!

Penn Badgley Lets His Claws Out

Penn Badgley, aka Dan from Gossip Girl, is bored.  Bored with the show and with his character and the whole thing which he thinks has become too “routine.”  Harsh.  How are we fans going to get into it if the ACTORS find it boring.  Although he has a point.  We need a new love interest for Dan, or perhaps he could turn gay again.  That’s always interesting.

If he’s I’m bored act wasn’t bad enough, he said that he doesn’t really care that co-stars Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr broke up because they’re “not friends.”
