Jeff Buckley Songs on NewsFeed - A movie based on the life of the late singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley, will begin filming this fall. Penn Badgley from Gossip Girl will be portraying the singer in the upcoming film named Greetings from Tim Buckley. Robert Pattison was originally rumored to play the lead role but don't worry Twilight fans, pasty face Pattison, that's what I call him, is the front runner to play Jeff Buckley in another film! So if he books that, I guess we're going to have to suffer through another teen 6 part series about Jeff Buckley…being a vampire and falling in love average looking girls? Great.
