In early July we learned that former popstar and sometimes actress Hilary Duff would be joining the cast of Gossip Girl in the show’s 3rd season this Fall and yesterday was her first day on the job. Here are a few pics of Hil D. with her new GG cohorts Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley and Blake Lively on her first day of filming on the NYC set of the show:
Clearly, Hilary is trying to get more acting gigs under her belt … she’s been in a couple of movies recently and did a guest stint on Law & Order: SVU earlier this year. This new gig on stint on Gossip Girl could be just the right vehicle to get her back on the acting map. Long gone are her days on Lizzie Maguire, so she’s got some work to do to get back in the public consciousness as an actress. While her attempt to get her own show on NBC, titled Barely Legal, didn’t get picked up by the network at least she can take heart that the folks at GG
took pity saw that she would be a great asset to the show. I mean … she’s already decked out in a hipster straw hat … she’s well on her way. Do any of y’all think Hil will blend seamlessly in with the rest of the cast or will she stick out like a big “guest star” sore thumb?
