.
(Gibson) Gossip Girl actor Penn Badgley has been cast as Jeff Buckley in a new film that will explore the late singer-songwriter's relationship with his folkie father, Tim Buckley.

Rolling Stone reports that the movie, titled Greetings From Tim Buckley, will follow Jeff from his performance at a tribute concert for his deceased dad through the release of his first album and his death from drowning in 1997.

"To play a man who was singularly gifted as an artist, greatly misunderstood and mythologized as a human being ... It's something very special and sacred," Badgley said in a statement. "I'm going to give all I can to this project." more on this story
