Chace Crawford Covers 'LA Confidential'

Chace Crawford is the latest cover boy for Los Angeles Confidential magazine.

The 24-year-old Gossip Girl actor, who was recently arrested during a pot bust, talked about his new film Twelve, in which he plays a — you guessed it — young drug dealer.

“It’s a complete departure for me,” Chace shares. “The character grew up with the privilege and the money, but his father is running the family’s bankrupt business, and his mom was stricken with cancer and battled that and died. So he’s almost forced to sell marijuana, and he doesn’t even know what he’s doing. He’s in over his head. It’s good for me because it’s a heroic figure, but it’s a pretty tragic, dark, melodramatic movie. There are a lot of really comedic parts in it, and it almost goes over the top to make fun of the Gossip Girl crowd. [The film] is so campy and funny, it’s silly, and then when it’s contrasted with the dark reality of one of the girl characters spiraling emotionally into this tailspin, it’s very tragic. It was a lot of fun—very liberating. It’s kind of a Less Than Zero for our generation.”
