Sigh, looks like Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) is about to spend his summer having an existential adventure in Italy, where we assume he'll hang out with a bunch of folksy locals, and possibly pen The Great American Novel Part Two (aka Il Grande Libro Americano Numero Duo).

Unfortunately, Lonely Boy's big plans to spend the summer in Rome with Blair (Leighton Meester) fell through (sad face), but casting calls from Gossip Girl's sixth season make it clear that Humpty Dumpty's still getting his Eurovision on. A July 9 posting on Casting Networks calls for:

1. Caucasian males and females age 18-40 who are able to act super Italian.
2. Caucasian females age 18-25 who should be a "model type" Italian.
3. A caucasian male age 18-25 who can play a young, hot, Italian farmhand. Bike riding skills a plus!

That's right, Upper East Siders, a farm hand. Here's to hoping Dan goes on a beautiful sexploration and "finds himself" with every single one of these extras. Ciao, ciao!
