Chace Crawford is Eastern Promises' Viggo Mortensen

Chace Crawford is Eastern Promises' Viggo Mortensen

Chace Crawford pays homage to Viggo Mortensen‘s character Nikolai in the 2007 crime drama Eastern Promises (Tattoos served an important purpose in the world of the Russian criminal).

The 24-year-old Gossip Girl actor talked to Interview Magazine about his edgy photo shoot and taking risks with his movie roles.

Chace shared, “That’s what was nice about doing a shoot like the one I did for Interview. It’s good to switch things up. I did all of this stuff early, and they always wanted the same thing, the same look, the same deal, and I’d think, That’s not what it’s about. It’s the same microcosm for taking on film roles. You have to be realistic with yourself as to what your range is going to be. I look at the veterans of the game and what choices they made. You need to know what your threshold is and what you can take on and what gets to a point where the audience doesn’t believe it. I actually apply that to my personal life, too. I’m the biggest believer in not talking. I don’t Twitter or MySpace or Facebook. I want to keep to myself. I don’t want to be out there. You have to keep some kind of control over who you are.”

    Viggo is mutch hotter!

  • nick

    Chace is fine and everything but he doesn’t have that grit to pull of that look- kinda looks dumb.

  • lively


  • adrianna

    Oh Chace you’re BEAUTIFUL ! We all know you’re gay (just like your Gossip Girl co-star Ed Westwick). Stop hiding and be proud of your sexual orientation !

  • vivian

    chace is so charming

  • fresh

    He’s deluded if he thinks this shoot resembles anything like Viggo in Eastern Promises.

  • taylor

    CHACE , you are my dream

  • Anna

    Is the cross on his chest supposed to look like three crossed penises?

  • ********

    Viggo is such a hottie…love this guy:)

  • where’s viggo?

    Chase looks good, but Viggo is better.

  • LadyL

    Chace is too pretty boy looking to pull off this look.

  • mertz

    since when has viggo mortnesen (i love you viggo….even with the name) been a pretty boy. like this is the best they could do to mimick this shot as a HOMAGE?????!!! f-m. people are so _______.

  • mertz

    ugh. i am the worst speller ever. mortensen. i knew that.

  • niki

    @adrianna: im smiling:)

  • Marcus


    Thank You, Adriana! How HE doin’?

  • hadis


  • Ellie

    I have to agree with what so many others have said. Chace is a cute boy, but Viggo is one hot Man!! Viggo does that “don’t F with me” look so well.

  • lol

    Keep trying gay boy.

  • flirtlikecrazy

    Homage? But VM exposed himself so much in the film, and Chace… :p

  • blanche

    Chace is a cutie but Viggo is SO much better

  • Helen

    sorry but Viggo is way hotter no offence to Chace he just personally doesnt do it for me

  • bella

    he is hot, but if this is supposed to shed his pretty boy image I have to agree with @Helen:
    He needs to do his own thing. I think is both a blessing and a career curse for him playing Nate on Gossip Girl.

  • metoo

    chace so damn hot!

  • metoo


  • alex p

    hahahah… funny…

  • pom

    “Tattoos served an important purpose in the world of the Russian criminal” – it’s totally ludicrous!!!! I know it because I’m from Russia.
    and if they have tattoos that don’t look like those(on a Chace body).

  • jorja

    i love them both!!!!!!!!!!

  • Eve

    One of the girliest looking guys (Crawford) trying to emulate one of the manliest, sexiest men on the planet (Mortensen) = FAIL!
