Ed Westwick Joins Romeo and Juliet

Hailee Steinfeld still hasn't found her Romeo, but the new adaptation of Romeo and Juliet has found someone to play Tybalt, the hot-blooded cousin to her Juliet: Ed Westwick. Showblitz reports that the Gossip Girl actor has come aboard the Carlo Carlie–directed film, and though we were totally pleased when Holly Hunter was recently cast as the Nurse, now we can't help but wish that it had been Dorota.
