Katie Cassidy, daughter of David Cassidy and former star of the short-lived Melrose Place relaunch, is set to star in a multi-episode arc of Gossip Girl, according to Entertainment Weekly, who received the exclusive tip on the news. The pretty blonde will play a student at Columbia who is also a love interest for Chase Crawford's Nate. It's also rumored –and not surprising- that Cassidy's character will be a trouble maker. Well, that makes sense, given that the show thrives on drama and melodrama amongst its characters.
Cassidy is set to air in the premier of the fourth season. She currently shooting Monte Carlo, a teen romp, in Paris with her future Gossip Girl co-star, Leighton Meester, who stars as Blair, the show's centerpiece.
