Marc Menard Cast as Priest on Gossip Girl

by at . Comments

Marc Menard has been cast in a much-anticipated, potentially recurring role on Gossip Girl - Father Cavalia, a priest from Monaco with ties to Blair’s fiancé, Louis.

There’s been speculation that in the upcoming fifth season, the priest heads to the Upper East Side to preside over Blair and the prince's wedding ceremony.

There's also speculation about the priest and a bridesmaid ...

Menard played Rousseau’s fellow French scientist on Lost.

The priest may also encounter some resistance from Louis’ meddling sister, played by French actress Roxane Mesquida, who is not a fan of the wedding.

Menard’s casting comes two days after news that Elizabeth Hurley will appear on Gossip Girl in the coming season, which begins Monday, September 26.

Can't blame Serena for getting involved with that ;)

Serena is good as gold as a bridesmaid, and she's such a slut she'll probably try hooking up with the priest. And the priest is probably a member of the royal family who gave up his place in line for the throne (ahead of Louis) to join the priesthood. YAWN!
