Have you been missing the phrase, “I’m Chuck Bass?” You won’t be able to hear that phrase again without reruns, but you may be able to see Ed Westwick’s face on TV again.
Ed, 27, has been cast in an ABC pilot, ‘L.A. Crime’, Deadline reported.
According to Deadline, the drama written by Steven Baigelman and directed by Tom Shankland is a “character-driven ‘true crime’ procedural” show.
The show will be set in significant eras in Los Angeles history and explore sex, politics and popular culture.
Ed will continue to play the bad boy, but even more twisted. The ‘Gossip Girl’ alum will play Kent, a serial killer who targets young women that have come to Hollywood to become famous, Deadline said.
Not exactly a sexy role, but I’m sure it will be a fun role for Ed to play. He can really delve into his dark side. Chuck certainly got dark at times over the six seasons that chronicled the UES elite.
According to Variety, the first installment will be set in the “rock ‘n’ roll, coke-infused revelry of the 1980s,” following two LAPD cops hunting serial killers along the Sunset Strip.
Further seasons of the show will be set in different eras and have different storylines.
The show sounds intriguing and hunting down a serial killer played by Ed has the potential to be very exciting. Will Ed be as sexy as Jamie Dornan was in ‘The Fall’? We’re not supposed to find serial killers hot, but how can you not when Jamie or Ed is playing the psycho?
I hope ABC picks up ‘L.A. Crime’ so we can see Ed terrorizing the Sunset Strip.
