Happy Birthday, Penn Badgley! The former Gossip Girl star is turning 29 today, and while we haven't seen as much of the actor as we'd like since the hit CW series ended, Badgley has, in fact, been pretty busy.

Not only has he filmed a new movie, The Paper Store, he's also made his return to television by appearing in two episodes of the mini-series, The Slap, earlier this year.

Aside from acting, Badgley also started his own Brooklyn-based band, MOTHXR, in which he stars as the band's frontman—something he previously told InStyle he didn't see himself doing. "My dream is to play live shows with a small orchestra—strings, horns, an organ," he said. "I'd play keyboards and guitar and sing. But I wouldn't be the frontman." Times may have changed, but Badgley's love for music plays on.
