Elizabeth Hurley is the latest celebrity to join the CW’s hit show Gossip Girl. The 46-year-old actress is joining the upcoming fifth season of the show on September 26 for a multi-episode story arc.
Executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran say Hurley will play Diana Payne, “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with.” Her character will reportedly clash with the show’s regular characters, even the mysterious Gossip Girl herself.
“Elizabeth’s sense of humor, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. We feel very fortunate to have her.”
Elizabeth should fit in with the snooty Upper East Side just fine. Will you tune in?
