GOSSIP GIRL Recasting Lily’s Sister

Illeana Douglas

Looks like the casting people over at GOSSIP GIRL are back at square one in their search for Lily’s sister.

According to TVLine.com, actress Illeana Douglas has dropped out of the hit CW show due to a scheduling conflict. This news comes just weeks after the Gossip Girl producers made the announcement that she had landed the role of Lily’s older sister Carol.

Producers are now in the midst of recasting the character…..again.

Some are saying the news is too bad because Douglas could be Krysten Ritter’s twin sister, which made her perfect for the part. Ritter was the actress who originated the role during season 2’s big 80’s flashback episode.

Oh well, as they say, I guess it’s back to the drawing board.
