Penn Badgley as Jeff Buckley - First Look!

Penn Badgley as Jeff Buckley - First Look!

Take your first look at Penn Badgley as Jeff Buckley on the set of Greetings from Tim Buckley on Monday (August 22) in Brooklyn, New York.

Greetings from Tim Buckley “follows the true story of the days leading up to Jeff Buckley’s eminent 1991 performance at his father’s tribute concert in St. Ann’s Church. Through a romance with a young woman working at the concert, he comes to understand the father who abandoned him. Culminating in a cathartic performance of his father’s most famous songs, Jeff’s debut stuns the audience and launches his career as one of the greatest young musicians of his time.”

Also pictured inside: Imogen Poots walking on set.

FYI: There are multiple projects about Jeff in the works – Reeve Carney will play him in another film.

    Reeve Carney looks a lot more like Jeff Buckley than Penn. I’m not even sure if he’s in character in the pics… but I love Penn and hope this will be good

    @jacqueline: Considering the timeline of the movie Penn does look the part. Plus he gets his haircut in the movie from what the script said.

    Oh please. Michelle Williams went from Dawson’s Creek to being twice nominated for an Oscar. You’re so closed minded.

    Um hello! Johnny Depp was a teen heart throb on 21 jump street so yea, I’ll give Penn a chance.

    At least Michelle Williams has actual talent, and she proved that by taking very difficult roles over the past years. I’ve only seen Penn in Gossip Girl and Easy A, both if which required no range.


    Reeve Carney is playing Jeff Buckley in another movie…

    From what I remember, Michelle Williams spent ten years of acting in roles like Lassie to Dawson’s Creek to **** before she got her break in Brokeback Mountain, so I find your reasoning to be lazy. You don’t like Penn Badgely, and that’s fine. But I think he deserves a chance to act in a serious role, the same way it has been afforded to so many actors whom we forget have started on teen shows.

    Marlon Says:


    And Reeve Carney admitted to reading for the film that Penn Badgley is staring in. Google it.
