Penn Badgley Intoxicates Hearts With His Lilac Wine

Oh, didn't you know?

When Penn Badgley isn't busy playing Lonely Boy on Gossip Girl, he's invoking Jeff Buckley!

A lot of you were probably first introduced to the wonder of Buckley when his version of Hallelujah serenaded Marissa Cooper's death on The O.C. (as well as the Season 1 finale montage).

But the musical wizard had plenty more where that came from — including a very special cover of Lilac Wine.

And since Penn is playing Jeff Buckley in the upcoming biopic, he took his "research" and performed the beautiful song LIVE at one of New York's lovely little clubs.

CH-CH-CHECK IT OUUUTTT (ABOVE)!

He and Leighton Meester need to do a duet. And they need to do one now! Riight?

Maybe together, their voices could bring world peace. Ha!

Uh-oh, Penn Badgley!

Looks like you've got some competition!

The actor has been tapped for a lead role in the in-development Jeff Buckley biopic, Greetings from Tim Buckley, but apparently, he'll be facing another film focusing on the life of the late singer, this one starring Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark actor Reeve Carney!

The late singer's mother, Mary Guibert, has reportedly approved of director Jake Scott's project with Reeve in the lead, and has given them exclusive access to his songs and personal archive!

Penn Badgley Is Jeff Buckley!

Penn Jeff Buckley Role

Sorry, R-Patz! We know you really wanted the role, but it looks like Penn Badgley has landed the role of Jeff Buckley in the upcoming Biopic!

Penn couldn't be happier either, as he's been trying to figure out a way to leave the Gossip Girl image in the past and get into more serious acting with deeper roles — and this could be just the part!

That still leaves Rob high and dry though, but, you win some and you lose some! You'll find another project soon!

Congrats, Penn!

Do U think this was the right casting move??

The Jeff Buckley Biopic Is Actually Happening

jef52371689__opt.jpg

There's been so much speculation behind the Jeff Buckley story, we can't believe that the biopic has actually been given a greenlight!

Brad Pitt had tried for years to develop Buckley's story into a movie, but was met with resistance by Jeff's mother, Mary Guibert.

Looks like Mrs. Guibert has come to a decision though, as the movie will be made, but without Pitt.

Filmmaker Jake Scott, who directed Welcome to the Rileys, will direct the film, which starts production this fall.

So far no word on who will play Jeff, but many names have been thrown around including R-Patz, James Franco, and more.

Who do U think should play Jeff Buckley??

RPatz Wants To Play Jeff Buckley!

We have to admit - he looks the part better than any of the other contenders!

Robert Pattinson is apparently ready to showcase his vocal stylingz in a much bigger way than ever before - as he's approached producers of a potential Jeff Buckley biopic in hopes to secure the role of the late folk singer!

Producer Michelle Sy confirms:

"I've met actors who are keen on the part and Robert was one…The actor must be able to play music and sing, or at least make it believable he can do that."

And despite competition from James Franco and James Marsden for the role, even Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, thinks our sparkly vamp is the perfect potential to play her son!

She reveals:

"Robert is a fine young actor. I'm flattered he's been linked to the project. When the times comes we'll give everybody an opportunity to be seen and heard."

He certainly has some tough competition, but this part actually does seem right up his alley!

We just hope that whomever ends up winning the part can do Buckley justice!

What do U think?? Should RPatz play Jeff Buckley??
