Why didn’t someone think of this sooner? The CW’s GOSSIP GIRL has cast Elizabeth Hurley for its upcoming fifth season, TVLine.com reports exclusively. Hurley’s movie star image is the epitome of privileged, high class society. And that British accent! She will fit right into the Gossip Girl scene. The shows executive producers, Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran, praise her “sense of humor, intelligence and beauty.”

Hurley will play the role of Diana Payne in a multiple episode arc. The character is “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with. Diana’s entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all [the] characters — including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself.”

Yes or no to Hurley’s casting on Gossip Girl?
