Gossip Girl Spoilers: Nate Gets a Cousin

at .

The Gossip Girl producers will be expanding Chace Crawford's enviable gene pool in the form of a cousin for Nate, according to Entertainment Weekly today.

The yet-to-be-cast character will be in his 20s and is described as a wealthy, confident, politically-minded and - all together now - extremely good-looking guy.

But before you go fixing him up with Blair, Serena or anyone else on the Upper East Side, you should know that this cousin of Nathaniel Archibald is married.

You should also know that his name is Kip Vanderbilt.

But all signs are that Kip is not a descendant of New York's legendary Vanderbilt family, though. For starters, Kip's dad's name is William, not Cornelius.

Nate the Great

Any casting suggestions for who should play Kip V. - or opinions on what this Gossip Girl casting news means for our favorite characters? Will Kip cause trouble for fair Nate Archibald? Will he have man-bangs too? Share your thoughts ...
