Penn Badgley, best known as Dan Humprey on the CW’s Gossip Girl, will play late singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley in an upcoming biopic. The film entitled Greetings from Tim Buckley will begin shooting in August under director Dan Algrant. Robert Pattinson, who has also expressed interest in the role, may still get his chance to play the troubador–another film is in the works with the Buckley family behind the scenes is set to begin prep in September.
