From gossip to literature.
Former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester will make her Broadway debut next year as a beautiful temptress in the revival of Of Mice and Men.
Producers said Monday that Meester will join James Franco and Chris O'Dowd in the story about an unlikely friendship between two migrant field workers in California during the Great Depression.
The story by John Steinbeck centers on big-dreaming George and the mentally challenged Lennie. Meester, who starred in the film Country Strong, will play the wife of a ranch boss who fascinates Lennie – "she's purty," he tells his friend – and endangers their fates.

Aron Ralston, who gained widespread attention when he cut off his forearm to free himself after becoming trapped by a dislodged boulder in a Utah canyon, has been arrested in Denver over allegations of domestic violence after a fight with his girlfriend, police say.
Ralston and Vita Shannon, both 38, were each booked Sunday on charges of assault and "wrongs to minors."
Police documents allege Shannon struck Ralston twice in the back of the head with her fists and that he shoved her as she was leaving her apartment.
The wrongs-to-minors charge is used when children are present during an incident but not necessarily hurt. Police documents say the couple's 8-week-old child was present at the time of the altercation but apparently suffered no harm.

Katy Perry isn't ruling out the possibility of having children one day – but it's not happening tomorrow.
"I'm definitely not there yet, and I can't plan that far in advance," she tells January's Marie Claire, out Dec. 17, when asked about having kids. "When I decide to have a family, I'll just want to be Mom for a little bit."
The "Unconditionally" singer, 29, doesn't say whether she would consider procreating with on-again beau John Mayer, 36, but it's clear the Grammy-nominated singer is smitten.
"He's just a fantastic partner," she says. "I've been a fan of his for such a long time. He's got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It's a rad, mature relationship."

When most The Biggest Loser contestants are eliminated, they devote themselves solely to their weight loss. But Ruben Studdard is more focused on something else – his career.
"It was difficult leaving," the American Idol winner told reporters after being eliminated from the NBC weight-loss show. "But I had a lot of work waiting on me when I left the ranch. As soon as the next day started, my work started."
The "Sorry for 2004" singer is currently working on a new album with producer David Foster and will be heading out on a Christmas tour with CeCe Winans, Peabo Bryson and Melissa Manchester.
"I will be out the whole holiday season so I won't be home, but if I was, we would definitely be having a healthy Christmas this year," Studdard, 35, said.
