Robert Pattinson was to said to have coveted the role, James Franco was said to be the front-runner for it, but in the end, Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley has won the role of Jeff Buckley in an upcoming biopic. R-Patz and his legions of fans are apparently "devastated," but we here at SW are excited for Badgley.

Badgley, who's affectionately referred to around SW offices as "Spider-Dan," is a native of sorts--he spent his childhood in Tacoma, attending University Place's Charles Wright Academy and honing his dramatic chops with Seattle Children's Theatre--ergo, out of Pacific Northwest loyalty, we're rooting for him, Twi-hards be damned.
