Penn Badgley stars as Dan Humphrey in The CW's drama "Gossip Girl," from Josh Schwartz ("The O.C."), based on the tremendously popular book series about privileged teenagers who attend an elite private school in New York City.

Penn Badgley stars in "Easy A," opposite Emma Stone, as Woodchuck Todd. Badgley recently completed production on "Margin Call," a thriller based on the events surrounding the country's financial collapse, also starring Stanley Tucci, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Zachary Quinto and Simon Baker.

On film, Badgley starred alongside Jesse Metcalfe and Brittany Snow in the hit comedy "John Tucker Must Die," and in 2008 he took a villainous turn in the rugby-themed "Forever Strong." In 2009, Badgley starred in the dramatic thriller "The Stepfather" opposite Dylan Walsh and Sela Ward. Badgley's other film work includes the provocative-yet-acclaimed independent feature "The Fluffer."

On the small screen, Badgley starred in Tom Fontana's "The Bedford Diaries," opposite Matthew Modine and Milo Ventimiglia. Badgley also played the lead in the Warren Littlefield-produced comedy series "Do Over." Badgley then segued into McG's drama series "The Mountain," with Barbara Hershey and Oliver Hudson.

Though life began for Badgley in Baltimore, he split his formative years between Midlothian, Virginia, and Seattle, Washington. It was there that he became actively involved in the Seattle Children's Theater and voice-over work that eventually lead he and his mother to Los Angeles, where he secured an agent.

Upon relocating, Badgley landed a coveted guest star role on "Will & Grace." Shortly thereafter, recurring roles on "The Young and The Restless," "The Brothers Garcia" and "Daddio" followed.  Badgley also guest starred on "What I Like About You."

When not honing his acting craft, Badgley attended Santa Monica Community College, having already completed his California High School Proficiency Exam at age 14. Badgley has deferred admission to University of Southern California until his work schedule will permit him to return to school. In his spare time, Badgley enjoys surfing, soccer, skiing, snowboarding, singing, and playing the guitar.
