Gather around, Upper East Siders. I’ve got some exciting news to tell you about our very own Leighton Meester! The Gossip Girl actress has been given the lead role in the upcoming indie film “Like Sunday, Like Rain,” where she’ll play a “struggling musician who becomes the guardian of a 12-year-old music prodigy one summer,” according to Deadline.
Her co-stars include Greenday’s frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who will play her boyfriend, and Debra Messing who will play the mother of the young boy (played by newcomer Julian Shatkin). Filming has already begun in New York City.
I personally can’t wait to see my girl belt out more tunes on the big screen. Her performances in Country Strong left me wanting more.
Are you excited about Leighton’s new role or will nothing compare to her Blair Waldorf days? Tell me in a comment below.
