It looks like "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley has some competition. He will be portraying Jeff Buckley in the upcoming Greetings from Tim Buckley and it looks like a rival Buckley biopic is right on its heels.
Broadway's Spider-Man, Reeve Carney has signed to Jake Scott's film about the tragic star. Buckley's mother Mary Guibert has reportedly signed on as an executive producer.
The film will be loosely adapted from David Browne's book Dream Brother: The Lives and Music of Jeff and Tim Buckley. The singer drowned in Tennessee in 1997 at the age of 30.
Buckley's mother says, "We are over the moon that Reeve has agreed to take on this challenging role. I've seen him perform several times… he's been getting ready for this all his life. It certainly doesn't hurt that he looks so much like Jeff."
Who do you think makes a better Jeff Buckley, Penn or Reeve?
