we still have three Mondays left before a new Gossip Girl episode airs. here’s what you should watch to fill the void. Well, part of the void. Visit your local video store (do people still do that?) and pick up:
Paranoid Park Taylor Momsen is Littler J in this 2007 Gus van Sant film. Or you could rent the Grinch movie…
Drive-ThruThis one’s a twofer! Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley (what a pair of weird names) are in this goofy horror movie. Warning: creepy clown content is high.
Son of Rambow There’s not a lot of Ed Westwick, but this movie is a real charmer and when you do get scenes with Ed, he’s all Britishy.
The Covenant Chace Crawford plus Sebastian Stan (Carter Baizen, who’s coming back to the Upper East Side this season) with the added bonus of Friday Night Lights’ Taylor Kitsch, my #1 tru lurve. Does the plot really matter? No, it does not.
More? OK: the Sisterpants movies for Blake L, Band of Brothers for Matthew S, John Tucker Must Die for Penn with terrible hair, The Haunting of Molly Hartley to see Chace play a dumbed-down version of Nate, and Melrose Place to relive the glory with Kelly Rutherford.
But the best replacement for new episodes of Gossip Girl is watching The O.C. while simultaneously reading the Gossip Girl novels. You won’t know the difference. Just kidding, Gossip Girl. I’m just pissy cuz I miss you…
