    The Jeff Buckley Biopic Race Heats Up, but Who Looks Best?

    Are you ready for some angst-fueled rock ‘n roll?

    Well, you'd better be. Because the battle of the two Jeff Buckley flicks is officially on now that both films have landed stars (with Reeve Carney heading one and Penn Badgley the other) who definitely look the part.

    But we wonder: Who takes the cake for their Buckley-like looks?

    Between Reeve, Penn and...Robert Pattinson!

    First there's Carney, who'll switch duties from Broadway Spider-Man to big-screen rock star. Reeve is tackling the official biopic (with a seal of approval by the late Buckley's mom) and pics that many have claimed to be the actor in character show that he bears a striking resemblance to the musician.

    Then there's Badgley, who will stick to his Gossip Girl stomping grounds for his Buckley flick, titled Greetings From Tim Buckley. Penn was even spotted recently looking très bohemian as he got into character on the NYC set. Maybe he'll finally join costars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester as a big-screen star.

    And finally, there's Robert Pattinson. Unfortunately, Rob won't be playing Jeff Buckley anytime soon, but it isn't for a lack of trying. Rob actively sought the role (even meeting with Buckley's mama), but wasn't lucky enough to lock it in. And we're very disappointed, as we think R.Pattz would have lent his pipes perfectly to the part and it's exactly the edgy thing he needs post-Twilight.

    Guess a third Jeff Buckley biopic would be a bit much, huh?

    So let us know, who's your Buckley o' choice: Spider-Man, Dan Humphries or Edward Cullen?
