Watch Penn Badgley Do His Best Jeff Buckley Impression

It feels like forever ago that we saw the original trailer for Greetings From Tim Buckley, a.k.a. the Penn Badgley as Jeff Buckley movie. Well, apparently, the thing is actually coming out, with an April 16 release date. Knowing what the people really want to see, the producers released the video of Badgley doing his best Buckley on Tim Buckley's "Once I Was." He definitely has a great voice, but does he sound like the real deal? Compare the clip from the movie to a bootleg of the real performance below. Don't worry, they're both real sad.
