Could Brittany Snow – who played a squeaky-clean ‘60s teen on “American Dreams” – pull off a rich girl from the ‘80s?

You betcha, say the producers of the upcoming “Gossip Girl” spinoff.
Zap2it.com’s Korbi Ghosh is reporting that Snow has been offered the role of a young Lily van der Woodsen. You know, before she was a van der Woodsen and Serena’s mom. Ghosh says it’s not a done deal yet, but Snow’s been offered the role and her peeps are in the negotiation process.
The show’s pilot will actually be the May 11 episode of “Gossip Girl,” when we’ll see flashbacks to when Lily was a wild child who flees the Upper East Side to move in with her older sister in L.A. (Krysten Ritter’s already been cast in the part of Big Sis.)
UPDATE: It’s official! Ritter confirmed to Kristin at E! that Snow has indeed been cast as Lily the Teenage Rich Kid.
So what do you think? Compare Snow to Kelly Rutherford, shown below, who plays the elder Lily. A good match?
Or do you think the whole idea of a Lily spin-off is a bad one?
