New stills from Greetings From Tim Buckley show the Gossip Girl star as the late singer. And a beard-free Penn recently performed a live cover of Buckley demonstrating his ability to channel Jeff on stage.

Below, Penn is seen as Jeff Buckley with Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later) in Greetings From Tim Buckley, which tells the story of Jeff and his father.

The film was recently added to Toronto International Film Festival's line up.


In August of last year, Penn was spotted with Imogen on set of the film, which primarily shot in New York City. More pics from the set can be seen here.

Early this month, Penn performed a cover of "Lilac Wine" in New York City.

To clarify: "Folk Penn" in, "Hipster Penn" out.
