Because He’s Hot: Penn Badgley Plays Ball in NYC (PHOTOS)

Penn Badgley Semi-Shirtless!
Check out this 'Gossip Girl' guy's festival fashion!
Penn Badgley may play the artsy Dan Humphries on Gossip Girl, but don’t let that fool you!

The 24-year-old actor was seen getting in touch with his inner athlete as he filmed a scene for the hit CW show in the big apple on Tuesday. But in true Dan fashion (literally), instead of sporting any proper athletic gear, he was in jeans and a t-shirt. We have a feeling that wouldn’t fly on a regulation field.

We’re not really sure why Dan would be taking part in a softball game, but we guess we’ll just have to tune in when the show returns to find out!

Dan isn’t the only one who is back to filming, as Chace Crawford and guest star Elizabeth Hurley were spotted getting close on set. Check out the photos below.
