Bravely taking on the role of beloved indie singer Jeff Buckley, Penn Badgley does his best to embody the troubled songwriter in the trailer for "Greetings from Tim Buckley."

In the film, one of two Jeff Buckley biopics in the works, the "Gossip Girl" actor plays the young singer in his early life, before he was famous.

Jeff deals with the overarching shadow of his estranged father as he travels from L.A. to New York in 1991 to play in a tribute concert for the man he barely knew.
