Gossip Girl‘s Penn Badgley caught up with E! News at the Toronto International Film Festival while he was promoting his new movie Greetings From Tim Buckley, and spilled some info on his character Dan Humphrey for Season 6. Looks like Dan is tired of playing nice guy and is going to turn to the dark side!
“He’s actually going down a dark path finally, but in a real way,” Penn said. “I mean, I think he’s dabbled in the dark before, but you’re like, ‘Dude, that’s not that dark. You don’t know what dark is.’ It seems like he might be going there a little bit, but it’s good.”
So, what can we expect from Lonely Boy in the final season? “I think he might be betraying people in a profound way that he’s never had the balls to or the lack of heart to,” Penn said.
After all, Dan was pretty hurt by Blair Waldorf‘s (Leighton Meester) decision to be with Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) instead of him, as well as Serena van der Woodsen‘s (Blake Lively) scheme for him to hook up with her while she secretly taped it! He was spotted with Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) in the last episode of Season 5. Perhaps the two of them are teaming up for a little payback….
Are you excited to see Dan turn to the dark side, or do you wish he’d stay a nice guy? Tell us in a comment below!
