Looks like Gossip Girl's beautiful baddie, Leighton Meester, is graduating from TV to film for a role in the thriller The Roommate. Meester will play Sara, "a college student who is randomly assigned to a freshman dorm with a stranger named Rebecca. Things turn deadly when Rebecca becomes obsessed and begins targeting people in Sara's life."
I have a feeling Meester will do the thriller thing very well, and it might be pretty satisfying to see her in this role — who hasn't wanted to terrorize Blair Waldorf?
She's done a few movies over the years, but she's most well-known by far for her big, bad role on the small screen. Do you think she'll do well as the lead in this thriller?
Do you think it'll be fun to see her branch out a bit, or will she always be Miss Blair to you?
Update: Apparently now Leighton Meester is playing the role of Rebecca, the deranged freshman (now that's more Blair-like) who terrorizes Sara, now played by Minka Kelly.
