- Follow Us! Did Gossip Girl's Penn Badgely land a role Robert Pattinson was up for? ClevverTV has the answers up next. Welcome back to your ultimate entertainment news show, ClevverTV. I'm Joslyn Davis at our Hollywood studios with the story behind reports that Robert Pattinson lost a role to Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley. Well according to MTV.com and various other reports, Penn is "at the top of a short list" for the leading role in a Jeff Buckley Biopic that Robert was thought to have been in the running for, as well. Hollywood Life is also reporting that a source close to Penn says he "is thrilled" about the role and "thinks it's the film of a lifetime." This same unnamed source added that Robert is "really bummed" about not landing this job as "he was passionate about this project." Absolutely nothing has been confirmed in regards to this film or the casting of the leading man, so at this point anything could happen. But what do you guys think about Penn making a go at a new, music-focused film project? Let us know here and keep it Clevver all the time by subscribing to our channel on YouTube. Thanks for tuning in everyone. I'm Joslyn Davis in Hollywood and we'll see you later!
