You's Elizabeth Lail Joins 'Gossip Girl' Revival, Lands Lead in 'Mack & Rita' Movie

Elizabeth Lail has booked two exiting roles!

The 28-year-old actress is best known for playing Guinevere Beck in the Netflix series You and now she’s joining the cast of the upcoming Gossip Girl revival series.

No details on Elizabeth‘s role have been revealed, but Deadline reports that she has joined the ensemble cast of the upcoming HBO Max series.

Elizabeth will also be playing the title role in the upcoming indie movie Mack and Rita, which is being described as similar to the classic movie Big.

In Mack and Rita, Elizabeth will play Mackenzie Martin, who “is tired of doing all the things she has to do to keep up and get ahead in her 30’s. Since she was a little girl, raised by her Grammie Martin, her deepest wish has been to be just like her Grammie, comfortable in her own skin, great at saying ‘no’ and largely unburdened by what other people think of her. Not to mention Mack has always loved a good chunky sweater and being in bed by 8 pm. While at her best friend’s bachelorette in Palm Springs, Mack stumbles into a sound bath regression pod and comes out as a 70-year-old woman, who she names her Aunt Rita. But Mack’s transformation really has nothing to do with her exterior body and Mack she learns that the reality of old age isn’t quite what she imagined. It turns out that being comfortable in your own skin isn’t a given at 70, or any age, really, because self acceptance comes from within and only through actually living.”

Diane Keaton will be starring as Rita while Taylour Paige is playing Carla, who is Rita’s best friend as young Rita.
