'Step' Up

I have never watched "Gossip Girl" before, but I'm almost embarrassed to say how turned on I was when I saw one of its stars over the weekend in the trailer for the new film, "The Stepfather."
   As the Culture Queens astutely asked: How do you do a remake of the 1987 B-flick "The Stepfather" and make audiences in 2009 flock to their local cineplex to see it? Answer: Change the main character from a teenage girl to a teenage boy, cast "Gossip" heartthrob Penn Badgley in the role and then keep him in a tank top or shirtless throughout most of the movie. And all this time I thought Hollywood didn't know what it was doing. See for yourself below:
