Penn Badgley Says His 'Gossip Girl' & 'You' Character Comparisons Will End with Episode Six!

John Stamos and Penn Badgley happily strike a pose together while attending a discussion of their series You during the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations at The Robin Williams Center on Tuesday (October 16) in New York City.

Penn, 31, recently opened up about the comparisons between his You character Joe and his well-known role as Dan Humphrey on Gossip Girl.

“The latter half of the whole series, episodes 6-10, is where we really start to get into the show,” Penn told EW. “The first five [episodes], you find that you’re kind of against-all-odds charmed by this guy. Maybe you still think he’s Dan, maybe you still think he’s me. But then episode 6 is a serious departure.”

“Episode 6 is like a stake in the ground,” Penn added. “You probably thought you knew what you were in for, and now it’s going to change, and it’s not going to go back.”
