Hilary Duff joins Gossip Girl
Hilary Duff is joining the cast of Gossip Girl. Duff is huge star in the very demographic that Gossip Girl is a huge hit.
It's hard to believe television actress, international movie star, and musician Hilary Duff is only twenty-one years-old. And to add to her stellar list of entertainment credits there's a new gig in town! The Lizzie McGuire actress certainly has longevity, that's for sure.
Hilary Duff recently signed on with Gossip Girl to guest star next season as – you guessed it – a movie star looking for a typical college experience. Next season will focus on the prepsters gearing up for the land of ivy so it sounds like it will fit in well. After all, Gossip Girl is known for being the creme de la creme: that is, the Upper East Side of Manhattan where wealthy and status collide. The teens always seem to have drama, friendships and oh yes, lots of love.
In fact, Hilary Duff's character, Olivia Burke will enroll in New York University and become roommates with Gossip Girl's Vanessa, played by Jessica Szohr. Insiders say Hilary's character, Olivia, will get romantic with Dan, played by Penn Badgley.
This could perhaps weave an interesting love triangle as Vanessa used to have a thing for Dan. Do we see fireworks or catfights? Hmmmm.
The Olivia plotline will emerge on October 5th, only three weeks after the season premiere on September 14th. Hilary's been quite a busy actress as she was the voice of Sunshine Goodness in Foodfight! She's in post-production right now of Provinces of the Night and will star as Bonnie Parker in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde to open next year.
