I was sort of obsessed with the Gossip Girl books back in high school and so when it was being cast, I was really following the casting hunt. I initially wanted Alexis Bledel to play Blair but obviously she was still in Gilmore Girls and couldn't do two leads on two shows. When I saw that Leighton had been cast, i was a little scared but obviously she's proved me wrong.

She is literally the only reason I'm still watching Gossip Girl and the only reason I will continue to do so -- until they kill off her character, which I doubt, I will keep up with that show. I'm glad she and Blake have carved identities outside their characters as well and I'll be excited to see her in more things.

And because I have yet to see Country Strong with Garrett Hedlund, I'll be deadly excited when I finally see that movie..
