When Smuggler Films announced that Penn Badgley was set to star as the late, great singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley, fans were surprised. Maybe BULLETT should expand into the business of fortune-telling: Our shoot with photographer Kurt Iswarienko captured Badgley decked out in Dior Homme, and playing around with a roomful of instruments (including an adorable Hamilton piano) in our premier issue back in fall 2010.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate our one-year anniversary than to look back on that vintage-inspired shoot starring the Talented Mr. Badgley. He also obliged us by filling out a questionnaire that not only includes his take on life’s giant conundrums (between boxers and briefs, he chose the former—swoon), but also his thoughts on the great Edward vs. Jacob debate. (Spoiler alert: He’s Team Bella.)
