Star magazine is reporting that Brittany Snow will take the lead role as the young Lily van der Woodsen in the new Gossip Girl spin-off.
"Brittany is thrilled," a friend of the actress told the mag. "She loves the original show and thinks the 1980's concept sets the spin-off apart from other series on television. She can't wait to wear all the fabulous outfits and really sink her teeth into the role."
The 22-year-old who's appeared in Hairspray, and most recently, Prom Night, was said to be the top choice for producers. A deal has not been finalized, but the friend says Snow was made a terrific offer earlier this month, even without an audition.
The pilot episode is set to air on May 11.
