Penn Badgley is leaving the Upper East Side and headed back to the big screen! We promise he’s not leaving Gossip Girl (phew!), but Penn recently landed an awesome role as singer Jeff Buckley in a new film that’s being called Greetings from Tim Buckley. And we’ve been hearing Penn actually beat out Robert Pattinson for this part!

But is it true?

Not at all. It turns out that there are actually two Jeff Buckley movies in the making, and Rob is being considered for that other Buckley movie. Sounds like we have two hottie-filled movies to look forward to!

As for Penn taking on his new role? He said:

“To play a man who was singularly gifted as an artist, greatly misunderstood and mythologized as a human being… It’s something very special and sacred. I’m going to give all I can to this project.” And we can’t wait to see it!

What do you think of Penn and Rob playing the same role in two different films? Who do you think will do a better job? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments!
