Billy Baldwin Cast as Serena's Father on Gossip Girl

Billy Baldwin (yes, of the Hollywood Baldwin family of actors and most recently of ABC’s now defunct Dirty Sexy Money) has been cast as Serena’s estranged father on Gossip Girl. While the CW hasn’t officially said anything, Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello confirmed that Baldwin will be playing William Van Der Woodsen in at least three episodes beginning in April. According to recent events on the show, it seems he will be causing quite the stir between Rufus and Lily as well as with Serena who’s been searching for her father for a while now.
