Chace Crawford stars as Nate Archibald in The CW’s hit drama Gossip Girl, from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (The O.C.), based on the tremendously popular book series about privileged teenagers in New York City.
In July 2010, Crawford began production on Bruce Beresford’s film, Peace, Love and Misunderstanding, in which he will star opposite Catherine Keener and Jane Fonda. The movie follows a Gotham lawyer (Keener) who retreats to the farmhouse owned by her hippie mother (Fonda) after her husband asks for a divorce. Crawford will play an anti-war butcher who captures the romantic interest of the daughter of Keener’s character.
Crawford can currently be seen in Joel Schumacher’s Twelve, based on the novel by Nick McDowell. He portrays White Mike, a young drug dealer whose highrolling life is dismantled in the wake of his cousin’s murder when his best friend is arrested for the crime. The film costars Emma Roberts, 50 Cent and Ellen Barkin and was shot in New York. Twelve premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, 2010.
Crawford grew up in Plano, Texas. He moved to Los Angeles to attend Pepperdine University. His first big break came when he landed the role of Tyler Simms in the film The Covenant.
Currently, Crawford splits his time between Los Angeles and New York City.
