Trip van der Bilt is worming his way back into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite! Zap2it reports that Broadway star Aaron Tveit was spotted strolling with his on-screen cuz, Chace Crawford (Nate), for a not-yet-undetermined storyline to feature in Season 5 of Gossip Girl.

Tveit’s been busy since his last appearance on the streets of Manhattan as van der Bilt. His award-nominated turn in Catch Me If You Can on Broadway as Frank Abagnale Jr. ended in early September (when the show closed), and he appeared last week on Law & Order: SVU (a little worse for the wear, if you ask us!). Looks like there’s time in his schedule now for ALL KINDS of havoc-wreaking!

Last we checked in with Trip — was it really all the way back in Season 3? — he was running for office, happily married, and... makin’ crazy with everyone’s lives. Particularly Serena’s, which was quickly upended when she fell in and out of love with him, (eventually) refusing to play the mistress role that he and his wacky wife Maureen had scripted for her. He then made their car accident appear as if it were Serena’s fault and the whole mess came to a screeching halt. What a charmer! Lovestruck Nate ended up whopping him in the nose for that one, so just what do these two have to discuss? Perhaps it will include a strategic take-down of that soon-to-be crazy Diana Payne. Hmm...
