Pictures of Blake Lively, Ed Westwick, Leighton Meester, and the Cast of Gossip Girl Filming in NYC

Blake and Penn Stay Close on Set With Leighton, Ed, and Chace

Penn Badgley and Blake Lively joined Chace Crawford and Katie Cassidy on the NYC set of Gossip Girl yesterday, and today blond Blake was shooting near Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick. While Blake's character, Serena Van Der Woodsen, may be distracted by a new man this season, in real life she's focusing on her small-screen series after working with Ben Affleck to promote The Town. She's not the only one with a hit film on her hands as Penn's Easy A came in a close second last weekend at the box office. Leighton, meanwhile, also has a big-screen sideline with her creepy-looking project The Roommate.
