Penn Badgley to Portray Jeff Buckley in Biopic

at .

It looks as though Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley has been cast in the role of Jeff Buckley in the upcoming biopic chronicling the late singer-songwriter's life.

The 24-year-old Penn, who has been trying to branch out from the CW drama and sink his teeth into serious acting with deeper roles, is said to be elated.

Robert Pattinson, on the other hand? He reportedly coveted the role of Buckley for the same reasons. Somehow we imagine his career will survive.

Way to go, Penn!
