Gossip Girl Re-Casting Role of Lily's Sister

by at . Comments

Gossip Girl recently cast Illeana Douglas to play the role of Lily's big sister Carol.

Now that Douglas has bailed due to scheduling conflicts, the role is again vacant.

It's unfortunate, since Douglas could definitely pass for an older Krysten Ritter, who originated the role during Season 2's ill-fated ’80s flashback / spinoff pilot episode, "Valley Girls."

Any suggestions on who they should cast in her place?

    Oh this is so unfortunate. I can really imagine her being Aunt Carol because of her resemblance to Krystan Ritter.

    Allison Janney, but there's no way she'd do it. And I think she's busy with the new Matthew Perry show anyway.
