Jesse Swenson Joins Gossip Girl

Jesse Swenson Joins Gossip Girl

Taylor Momsen, aka Jenny Humphrey, and new cast member Jesse Swenson shoot scenes for their hit TV show Gossip Girl in New York City on Monday morning.

Gossip Girl returns with all new episodes on April 21, when one of the male characters on the show will be revealed as gay. I don’t think it’s the new guy, btw.

Swenson was a theatre major at Boston Conservatory. He’s currently an understudy for the Broadway musical Spring Awakening as the character Melchior Gabor (Jonathan Groff originated the role since its Broadway debut in Dec. 2006).

WHAT DO YOU THINK of new “Gossip Guy” Jesse Swenson??

    OK. so i read all the books and yes….*spoiler alert* it IS chuck who turns out to be gay.

    and i knew from the dogs EXACTLY who jesse will be playing. he will be playing the role..if any one remembers

    he dates jenny in “i like it like that” .

    he is only in one book though. so we will se how long this awesomeness lasts!
    hopefully forever.

  • Katie

    does this mean Jesse is leaving Spring Awakening, or no? Because I really like him as Melchior.

  • mary

    To Katie (#23): No, filming takes a few days, maybe a few hours even and the show is filmed in NYC so he’s not going anywhere.


    guys its deifnetly chuck! o and nate and someone kiss… i’ll put it up if ppl want

  • bella

    in the books, Chuck is the one that goes gay.

  • Brooke

    that would totally ruin it if Chuck was gay..I am pretty sure it will be Serena’s little brother

  • carol

  • Meaghan

    Aww, Jesse! I am so excited to see him in Gossip Girl. I LOVE Spring Awakening and GG. I hope he is on GG for awhile, but doesn’t leave SA…I want to be able to see him as Melchior again. So excited for him! :)

    OMG I think he is gonna play Leo (Jenny’s brief bf in the books)!

  • taylor

    i wonder what character hes gonna be.
    my guess is leo from the books.
    but idk.

  • Tata

    I hope Dan is the gay one LOL! He is SO anoying..

    anyways.. this new guy.. if Josh is going by the books, he’s probably “Leo”, a guy Jenny dated in the book 5, I think…

  • Alexa

    obviously all the people who posted above you…?

  • http://deleted jamey

    don’t let dan be gay!!!!!!!!!!! what’ll happen to serena now??

    and how can you say it’s chuck?? he’s such a perv in the tv series.

  • blairbear

    It’s Eric,I read it on the link in and on myspace,too.

  • kARA


    Chuck, Nate, and Dan are NOT NOT NOT GAY (confirmed…I would cry and stop watching if they were)

    ERIC IS GAY (CONFIRMED…spoilers)
    ERIC IS GAY!!!!!!

  • Annika

    He’s cute! But if he’s the dog guy from the books and they’re using the whole storyline then he won’t stick around for long.

  • ♥XAndra♥

    I’m guessing it’s DAn..because he was gay in the books and maybe they will still make him gay in thye series,…I hope not,..I like Dan,..he’s funny,…..I really do hope it’s not him,…let it be,…someone else but him..PLEASE!!!!… ;c
