Gossip Girl Alum Penn Badgley Joins NBC Miniseries The Slap as Cougar Bait

Penn Badgley The Slap

Gossip Girl would surely have a field day over this casting: Penn Badgley will recur on NBC’s miniseries The Slap as the 25-year-old boyfriend of Mary-Louise Parker’s character, our sister site Deadline reports.

The eight-episode mini  — based on an acclaimed Australian project and written by Jon Robin Baitz (The West Wing) — is about how one man’s punishment of another couple’s child explodes into a complex family drama.

The cast also includes Peter Sarsgaard (The Killing) and Zachary Quinto (American Horror Story).

The Slap marks Badgley’s first TV gig since Gossip Girl ended its run in 2012.

    Why does America need to remake everything? It’s so insulting. The original miniseries is incredible, and rather than putting an American stamp all over The Slap the original series should be aired.
