Barr was set to portray Keith van der Woodsen in the Gossip Girl spin-off Valley Girls, but its backdoor pilot during season 2 of Gossip Girl did not perform as successfully as producers had hoped, leading to the show's cancellation. It has been rumored that the show will instead become a 90-minute TV movie, set to air on the CW some time between the season 3 finale and the season 4 premiere of Gossip Girl, but as this has not been officially announced, it is unknown whether Barr will appear or not.


In 2010, Matt was cast as a series regular in the CW series Hellcats, playing Dan Patch. The series premiered on September 8, 2010.
