From Gossip Girl To Shakespeare! Ed Westwick Joins New Romeo & Juliet Movie!

ed westwick joins romeo and juliet as tybalt

Look at you maturing as an actor, Mr. Westwick!

Back in January, we heard that Gossip Girl & S. Darko star Ed Westwick had signed on for a role in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar. Now, he's getting his Shakespeare on in Romeo & Juliet!

As we already know, True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld will play Juliet, and now Westwick has been cast as Tybalt in Carlo Carlie's adaptation of Shakespeare's immortal tale.

We've also learned that Holly Hunter has been cast as The Nurse, but still no word on who will play Romeo this time around.

We suppose Leonardo DiCaprio is a bit too old for the part now, huh? LOLz.

How do U feel about the cast of Romeo & Juliet so far? Do U think Ed Westwick will be able to hold his own doing Shakespeare?

  1. 1

    Ed can handle any and everything!

  2. 2

    Wow, I totally envisioned him.

  3. 3

    I can never figure out what everyone thinks is so hot about this guy …not saying anything bad but I just don't see it. To me his face seems deformed and hes just ugly.

  4. 4

    Now the movie will be ruined… thank god he isn't going to be romeo, or I really don't think I could watch it at all. He really isn't an attractive guy. I love his fake "tortured soul voice" on gossip girl too lol.

  5. 5

    What is really sad about this guy is that right now in his career he is cute..but give it a couple years and he will look like a freaky Corey Feldman…just with less hair…I guess he better milk his 15 minutes while he looks decent….and that is a fact!!

  6. 6

    do we really need another Romeo & Juliet movie? the one with Leo was fine, but I hate it when they keep on destroying classical material by letting a merely mediocre actor like Westwick play Shakespeare. He simply doesn't have the talent!

  7. 7

    Leo is way too old. It would be creepy. Max Irons would be good.
    Hell-to-the-no to Justin Bieber. I hope they don't even consider him.
    Who plays Paris?

  8. 8

    They are making another Romeo and Juliet movie? Really?
