“Gossip Girl” star Penn Badgley is set to star as Jeff Buckley in the biopic “Greetings from Tim Buckley.” While details on the film have been tightly guarded, a video recently surfaced on YouTube that features Badgley performing the cover “Lilac Wine”.
Jeff Buckley was only 30 years old when he lost his life in a tragic drowning accident in 1997. That hasn’t dimmed the impact he made as a singer/songwriter, though. His version of the Leonard Cohen classic “Hallelujah,” gave the song new life and made it a signature cover song across genres. It’s safe to say that expectations are high for Badgley to do Buckley justice.
