It wasn't long ago that Gossip Girl premiered on the CW and quickly became the hottest show on TV, buoyed by some of the hottest young celebrities around.

Well, we suppose 2007 is sort of a long time ago. But it feels like it was yesterday!

Upon hearing the exciting news that Ryan Reynolds got Blake Lively pregnant, we got to thinking about what the her former co-stars are up to these days.

The answer, at least in some cases? More than you might think. In other cases ...

Blake Lively
Blake Lively, after closing the book on Serena van der Woodsen, married her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds and is now pregnant with their first child. Since Gossip Girl wrapped, she moved on to film projects as an actress, and has kept a pretty low-profile, which doesn't always mesh with her fashion icon status and being named one of TIME‘s 100 Most Influential People. She also launched a new lifetyle website, Preserve, on which she revealed her pregnancy.

Their careers may have peaked on the Upper East Side in the late 2000s.

We're not trying to be harsh, but where has Chace Crawford been? Ed Westwick? For a time, the BFFs were the "it" guys of teenybopper TV. Nowadays?

You'll have to click through the gallery above to find out the answer.

Some cast members would likely prefer you not watch Gossip Girl online marathons so as to appreciate some of their more recent, and refined, work.

Elizabeth Hurley recently joined the cast of Gossip Girl for the upcoming season as Diana Payne, described as “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul."

A media ogul who may seduce Chace Crawford's Nate!

We're basing that on nothing but this photo from the show's New York set, of course. We have no idea what plot developments the producers have in store.

That said, would it surprise anybody? Blair and Serena both have their own story lines, and sleeping with gorgeous women is one of Nate's strong suits.

Just saying. Anyway, here's Elizabeth and Chace on set ...

Is there a chance Nate will hit it? Is there a chance he won't?

Chace Crawford has pulled a Zac Efron. No, not the hair ... though that would apply.

The Gossip Girl star has unexpectedly backed out of the casting-plagued remake of Footloose, rendering the production once again short its leading man.

A Chace Pic

The film has been in the works, at least in theory, for a long time now, first with Efron scheduled to headline it and then Crawford. Both have bailed out.

Zac reportedly did not want to be typecast as the dude from cheesy, dance-themed films. Understandable. Chace's Gossip Girl schedule is the culprit.

CUT LOOSE: Chace Crawford has ... by his own volition.

As for which fleet-footed pretty boy may step in next? The studio may try to solve its casting woes by searching for an unknown star. Not a bad move.

Fortunately, still attached to the project, meanwhile, is former Dancing With the Stars cutie Julianne Hough. Who wouldn't sign on for that alone?
