    What he's up to now: In 2012, Penn wrapped up filming Gossip Girl (where it was famously revealed that he was "Gossip Girl," and I still have lots of thoughts about that) and is currently the star of Netflix's creepy but very good series, You.

(Seriously, if you haven't heard "Joan of Arc on the Floor," give it a listen, it's bop-tastic!)
