Has something been missing in your life since ‘Gossip Girl’ ended and you lost Nate Archibald? If so, you’re life is about to get a lot better. Chace Crawford is coming back to TV, in a leading role.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Chace, 29, has been cast in ABC’s pilot ‘Boom’.
The series is about the recent oil boom in North Dakota. Chace has snagged the role of Billy, “a quick-witted and ambitious hustler who travels to the North Dakota oil fields,” EW reported.
Don Johnson (‘Miami Vice’) and Delroy Lindo (‘The Cider House Rules’) have also been cast to star in the ABC pilot.
Josh Pate wrote and directed the pilot and Rodes Fishburne also helped write the pilot.
Since Chace left ‘Gossip Girl’, he starred in ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’ and guest starred on ‘Glee’. The ‘Gossip Girl’ alum has three projects in the works for this year, ‘Undrafted’, ‘Eloise’ and ‘Untitled Warren Beatty Project’.
Chace was great at playing Nate and it’s hard to see him playing anyone else. His character grew so much in six seasons. I’m really looking forward to seeing him play Billy in ‘Boom’. I hope this ABC pilot ends up being a success for him.
Are you looking forward to seeing him back on TV?
