Brittany Snow to Play Young Lily Van Der Woodsen?


We’re conflicted about this. One the one hand, we’re pleased that Snow seems to be aware that this is a role that will test her mettle as a thespian and is duly preparing for it, hopefully using the Method. (We actually did this ourselves one weekend and it turns out all it really takes to become Lily van der Woodsen is four gin martinis and one viewing of The Poseidon Adventure.) On the other hand, we’re confused that elegant, patrician Lily is being played by someone so … how do we say? Down-market. We’re sorry, but her name is Brittany! Plus, she doesn’t even look like Lily — her cheeks are rounder and her nose is thicker than Kelly Rutherford’s.

Oh. We guess they’re thinking that this is what she looked like before the surgeries?
