Penn Badgley's Dan Humphrey on 'Gossip Girl' Was Almost Played by Another Actor!

Gossip Girl could have been totally different if this actor was cast as Dan Humphrey instead of Penn Badgley!

The 32-year-old You star’s role was almost nabbed by 29-year-old Solo: A Star Wars Story actor Alden Ehrenreich.

“Before Penn was involved, I desperately wanted Alden Ehrenreich to play Dan,” casting director David Rapaport revealed in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly.

It came down to height – Alden was apparently too short to star alongside Blake Lively‘s Serena van der Woodsen.

David was sure about Blake playing Serena, though: “They were looking for someone who was casually cool, effortlessly chic, and—as a performer—was able to access their feelings. I was looking for this perfect person that would deliver on every level. I did not have another choice. I knew in my heart there was no one else.”

Gossip Girl is now streaming on Netflix!

XOXO.

Alden Ehrenreich Will Star in 'Brave New World' Series for NBCU's Streaming Service

Alden Ehrenreich, best known for his work in the movie Solo: A Star Wars Story, has landed the lead role in the upcoming series Brave New World.

The show was originally developed at Syfy and then was picked up to series for USA Network, but it’s now rumored to be a blockbuster show for NBCU’s new streaming platform, according to Deadline.

Brave New World is based on the 1932 novel by Aldous Huxley, which “imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.”

Here is the show’s synopsis: “As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage (Ehrenreich), who escapes with them back to New London. The arrival of John, a subversive outsider, in the New World, threatens to disrupt the stability of New London’s utopian society.”

The NBCU streaming platform will debut in 2020.
