From Chuck Bass, to Wuthering Heights' Heathcliff

Publish date:

Gossip Girl baddie Ed Westick has been tapped to play Heathcliff in an upcoming big screen revisitation of Wuthering Heights, according to Variety. I'm trying to figure out how exactly this will stretch Westwick's acting muscle, since his GG character Chuck Bass is basically Heathcliff-in-Prep School. Gemma Arterton will play Cathy, now that Natalie Portman has opted out due to a scheduling conflict.
