bagdley buckley1 Hollywoods Jeff Buckley covers real Jeff Buckley

In preparation for the release of the “unofficial” Jeff Buckley biopic Greetings From Tim Buckley, leading man Penn Badgley (Gossip Girls) recently covered the singer’s version of “Lilac Wine” during a solo gig (the song’s been previously performed by Eartha Kitt and Nina Simone). With guitar in hand, Badgley’s rendition of the Grace cut is surprisingly in-line with Buckley’s mournful croon, a definitive check in the plus column for the film’s overall chances. Watch fan footage below.

According to IMDB, Greetings From Tim Buckley is in post-production. The “official” Buckey biopic, starring Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark lead Reeve Carney, is still in limbo.
