Two new characters will reportedly be joining Gossip Girl later this year.
According to TV Guide, theatre star Aaron Tveit has been cast as Nate Archibald's (Chace Crawford) wealthy cousin Tripp Vanderbilt, while Holley Fain will play Tripp's fiancée Maureen.
The couple will appear in two forthcoming episodes which will show Nate attempting to reconcile with his mother's family.
Tveit is most famous for his role as Fiyero in Wicked on Broadway, while Fain has made guest appearances in Law And Order: Criminal Intent and Lipstick Jungle.
Last month, it was announced that Michelle Trachtenberg would be reprising the role of scheming Georgina Sparks later this year.
