Has anyone ever told Blake Lively that she has magnetic star power? Probably. A newly unearthed (yes, as in, pulled out of the ground by rugged archeologists) video shows Lively's audition for the role of Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl. Watching it now will make you feel like a perceptive casting director who has just found the perfect actress to play a girl to be gossiped about.

This is especially interesting after the recent revelation that the CW originally thought Lively was too much of "a sunny California girl" to play the Upper East Sider. What do you think? That you can do every person's job better than them and what is anyone even doing? Understandable.
