Penn Badgley Reveals If He’s Joining the ‘Gossip Girl’ Reboot
We already know Kristen Bell is coming back to reprise her role as Upper East Siders' favorite narrator for the Gossip Girl reboot, and Chace Crawford (aka Nate Archibald) has made it clear that he'd love to make a cameo, but what about Lonely Boy?
Entertainment Tonight recently sat down with Penn Badgley to talk about the upcoming second season of You but couldn't resist the opportunity to ask him if we can expect Dan Humphrey's return in the new series.
"Could Dan Humphrey...? I don't... That's a message I gotta put at the top of my inbox, you know, to think about," he said. "I have not had conversations with any of the creators yet, but you know..."
When asked if he'd be open to reviving his character, the actor was blunt. "I think it's pretty clear that, like, I've never been a proponent of Dan Humphrey's. I've never been necessarily the greatest friend or fan of Dan Humphrey, which now I reconcile in this way that I'm like, you know, I would love to contribute in a meaningful way to it. And I guess it would just depend on a lot of things,'" Badgley explained.
"It would depend on how and why he's there," he continued, "and I don't know... like, is it even... yeah, I don't know."
As far as his new obsessive character in You, Badgley had this to say: "Joe [Golberg] is challenging Dan's legacy, I'll say that, pretty quickly."
