One of the most eagerly anticipated — and simultaneously dreaded — films on the horizon is the indie drama "Greetings From Tim Buckley," which serves as a biopic of Tim's son, the late, great musician Jeff Buckley. From the moment it was announced until the moment it debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last week, fans were holding their breath, wondering if the movie and star Penn Badgley could possibly do Jeff justice.
Well, now we have the first trailer for "Greetings From Tim Buckley." And the verdict?
Looks like you'll have to watch it and judge for yourself. Get More »
Turns out Penn Badgley is not just another pretty face – apparently he has a pretty voice as well. Who would've thought "Gossip Girl"'s Dan Humphrey could carry a tune? In his latest film, "Greetings From Tim Buckley," Badgley manages to capture the very essence of one of the most ethereal musicians of the '90s, Jeff Buckley.

For over a century, it has been one of the world's most burning questions: If Abraham Lincoln fought his own clone, who would win?
Okay, so maybe we're overstating the importance of the question, but that isn't going to stop Hollywood from answering it. And next year's showdown between "Lincoln" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is just one example of the many projects in the movie pipeline that are fighting with their own clones. Everyone from Snow White to Osama Bin Laden is racing to get to the theater before their evil twin gets there first.
So with that in mind, we thought we'd take a look at some of the films that may soon have you seeing double. Because in Hollywood, if an idea is good enough to film, it's good enough to copy. Get More »
Penn Badgley will indeed be playing the role of Jeff Buckley in an upcoming film featuring the late singer-songwriter, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
However, this is not the same Jeff Buckley film that Badgley was rumored to have been involved with last week. You know, the one that the "Gossip Girl" star had supposedly been chosen for over Robert Pattinson.
That film, which still doesn't have its Buckley, is currently untitled. This film, in which Penn Badgley has officially been cast as Buckley, is called "Greetings From Tim Buckley." Get More »
