From gossip to literature. Former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester will make her Broadway debut next year as a beautiful temptress in the revival of Of Mice and Men. Producers said Monday that Meester will join James Franco and Chris O'Dowd in the story about an unlikely friendship between two migrant field workers in California during the Great Depression.

Meester, who starred in the film Country Strong, will play the wife of a ranch boss who fascinates Lennie - "she's purty," he tells his friend - and endangers their fates. »
