Elizabeth Hurley is set to take on the Upper East Side in the fifth season of Gossip Girl.
Hurley was originally set to play a villain on the new revamp of Wonder Woman, before TV bosses scrapped the project, but will now be taking her talents to the set of Gossip Girl.
Hurley’s role will be Diana Payne, an NYC media mogul.
In a statement from executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran says, “Diana’s entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all our characters – including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself.”
“Elizabeth’s sense of humor, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. We feel very fortunate to have her.”
