Prior to making it in Hollywood, Ed Westwick was a band member of UK group The Filthy Youth. He gave up his musical career to focus on his acting, but says he’d like to get another band together. Wonder if Chace Crawford has any musical talent?
Sexy, smooth and shirtless Penn Badgley plays Dan Humphrey on The CW’s Gossip Girl. Badgley was one of those child actors moved to Hollywood at age 11 for his “big break.” It took a few years, but after a role in The Young and the Restless, Badgley started getting steady work. His role as Dan Humphrey is definitely his break out character. In real life, Badgley is dating on-screen romantic interest Blake Lively.
All many Gossip Girl fans can think about is Chace Crawford, but if you’re looking for a bit of maturity, check out Matthew Settle. At 40, Settle’s got a body that puts many 20 year-olds to shame. He plays daddy Rufus Humphrey on Gossip Girl these days, but he’s had roles on ER, Band of Brothers, Brothers and Sisters and various big screen roles. Settle has done some full-frontal nude scenes as well. I’ve seen them – you won’t be disappointed.
Shirtless Chace Crawford!
Chace Crawford, a Texas boy, fell into Hollywood while attending Pepperdine University and struggling to pick a career path.
