Ed Westwick Cast in Romeo & Juliet
Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick will be trading his suits, purple ties and trademark scarf for deathly fights and bloodied swords! Sort of. The actor is the latest to join Carlo Carlie's adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, alongside Hailee Steinfeld and Holly Hunter.
Ed will not be playing the title character, however.
Romeo is still MIA as of this moment. Westwick will, instead, be tackling the role of Juliet's hot-headed cousin Tybalt ... who usually dies about midway through.
Still, some Ed is better than no Ed, are we right?
Ed Westwick is really expanding his acting resume of late.
