Spotted: Chuck Bass is making his way to L.A.
That´s right, Ed Westwick AKA Chuck Bass, Upper East Side Bad Boy Billionaire is coming back to TV.
The Gossip Girl alum has been cast as one half of a Bonnie-and-Clyde-style pair of serial killers in ABC’s L.A. Crime pilot, Even better? The Bonnie to his Clyde will be played by Parenthood star Erika Christensen. We now live in a world where Chuck Bass and Julia Braverman-Graham are chillin' like villains and we love it. Playing the two detectives in the potential true crime procedural are Gabriel Luna and Adam Rothenberg, with American Horror Story's Taissa Farmiga, Darrell Brit-Gibson and Karolina Wydra also set to star in the project written by Steven Baigelman. If greenlit, the drama will look at several facets of L.A. culture — including sex and politics — in various time periods.
But these are not the only good news for Gossip Girls fans like me, because Chase Crawford AKA Golden Boy Nate Archibald is also making his way back to TV with him landing a leading role in ABC's Boom. The drama series will follow the biggest oil discovery in American history, which triggers an economic shift in North Dakota not seen since the 1849 California Gold Rush. Crawford will play Billy, a "hustler" of a man who experiences hardships when he tries to move to North Dakota with his wife to reap the benefits.
All in all, Ed Westwick‘s latest role makes Chuck Bass look like a do-good choirboy, but that doesn´t mean that we will love him any less than when he was, as I previously said Upper East Side Bad Boy Billionaire.
