Jeff Buckley Biopic Allegedly Casts Its Jeff Buckley

    The long-rumored, long-gestating Jeff Buckley biopic has apparently found its Jeff Buckley: Gossip Girl’s Penn Badgley has been reported as the man set to play Jeff Buckley, beating out the likes of James Franco (probably) and Robert Pattinson (who publicly lobbied for the role). Dude is certainly going to bring out the teens, so that’s probably the reason he was cast. And the fact that he’s unknown probably helps too. Don’t have to pay him James Franco money. [Stereogum]
