I'm getting excited about the new Gossip Girl spinoff.
According to Star, cutie Brittany Snow snagged the lead in the new series! Yes, the Hairspray star has been cast as the teenaged Lily van der Woodsen.
"Brittany is thrilled," a friend told the mag. "She loves the original show and thinks the 1980's concept sets the spin-off apart from other series on television. She can't wait to wear all the fabulous outfits and really sink her teeth into the role."
I think Brittany happens to be a great actress -- loved her in American Dreams -- so I'm psyched for this.
"Brittany always thought she was going to continue her career in films," the insider blabbed. "But this is a marvelous part and she just couldn't say no. This has the potential to be a huge show in the tradition of Melrose Place."
The deal is in the final stages of being sealed, and the show premieres on The CW on May 11.
