Penn Badgley Says He's Done with TV After 'The Slap'

Penn Badgley flashes his sexy smile while speaking at the Meet the Filmmakers event for his movie Cymbeline at the Apple Store Soho on Thursday (March 12) in New York City.

The 28-year-old actor said in a new interview with Us Weekly that he’s done with television after his show The Slap ends.

“It’s going to end up being my swan song for television because I don’t think I can do any more,” Penn said.

“It was a wink and a nod to my role in Gossip Girl,” Penn added. “I’m playing a guy who’s on a TV show, a hit TV show, and he’s also the front-singer in a band. So I was like, ‘Alright, this is so close to home that if anybody else plays it, it’s a joke anyway.’”
