Penn Badgley Not Cast as Jeff Buckley in the Buckley Biopic   2 comments

False reports have been circulating the internet for the past few days stating Penn Badgley had been cast as the late Jeff Buckley in the Jeff Buckley biopic. The Los Angeles times has debunked this latest rumour. Please see their article below. 

The LA Times:

New rumors swirling around the long-awaited Jeff Buckley biopic have falsely pitted actor Penn Badgley as the lead in the film about the late singer-songwriter. According to the film’s co-producer,Orian Williams, the gossip surrounding the “Gossip Girl” star is compounded on further inaccuracies that “Twilight” heartthrob Robert Pattinson had been considered a shoe-in for the role of the enigmatic singer-songwriter.

“Penn is not involved in the film at all,” Williams said in a phone interview. “It’s crazy how these stories get out.” When asked about Pattinson’s involvement with the film, Williams said that although he’s a fan of the British actor, he’d only had preliminary meetings with Pattinson, who was interested in auditioning for the film project, now almost six years in the making. Williams, along with producer Michelle Sy, casting director Billy Hopkins and executive producer Mary Guibert, Buckley’s mother, are still seeking out actors for the casting process, which will likely begin in October, Williams said.

Most likely, the film will star an unknown actor who can portray Buckley without the weight of any preconceived Hollywood expectations, added Williams, who helped cast Sam Riley in the lead role of Ian Curtis in the 2007 biopic “Control” about the Joy Division front man. Williams said he’s hoping to follow the same standards of finding someone with a low profile who can deliver Buckley’s intense personality and haunting falsetto. “[The producers] are all very unified in our search to find the perfect person to play Jeff,” Williams said.

Currently, the film is set to shoot in New York and Tennessee, where the story largely takes place. Though he rebuts rumors regarding the part of Buckley, Williams said that all kinds of actors and musicians have expressed interest in auditioning.

Reid Ewing (Actor, ABC’s Modern Family) talks about Robert Pattinson’s good looks   3 comments

Who was your favorite person you met?
I didn’t really meet anybody, except Tila Tequila interviewed me, and she called me a hottie so I like that. That was basically it. I was really up close to a lot of big people. There is something about Robert Pattinson, you know what I mean? I’ve never actually seen him up close, but he retains his good looks. It’s pretty crazy it’s like ‘Wow, he actually does look like some ancient vampire.’
