Wow! They're trading in that obnoxious Vanessa Abrams and getting HER?!
Elizabeth Hurley may have lost her job as the villain on the scrapped Wonder Woman pilot, but she's been reportedly tapped for a multi-episode arc on the upcoming fifth season of Gossip Girl!
According to executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran, the actress will portray a woman named Diana Payne, “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with. Diana’s entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all our characters — including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself."
“Elizabeth’s sense of humor, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. We feel very fortunate to have her.”
Oh man - she will be PERFECT for this role!
Absolutely inspired casting!
And not a bad fall-back, either!
Well done, gurl! We can't wait to watch you color the Upper East Side with some serious FEROCITY!
It's about time someone did!
What do U think?? Are U excited to see Elizabeth join the cast??
