CHACE CRAWFORD might be greatest identified today for his function because the Fresca-chugging, Aquaman-esque superhero The Deep on Amazon Prime Video’s smash hit style satire The Boys, however he can by no means get too distant from the function that first catapulted him to fame: enjoying Nate Archibald on 121 episodes of The CW’s teen drama Gossip Woman. And though he is since moved onto one other present with barely extra motion, he nonetheless will get hit with necessary Gossip Woman questions every so often—like who was the perfect kisser of the numerous on the present he locked lips with.
“Ha! I am unable to even keep in mind,” he stated within the newest version of Males’s Well being‘s video sequence Vs. the Web. “Normally, it is a type of issues the place you are sitting round with 60 individuals watching with the sound increase in your face, and also you’re making an attempt to actually…do it. No.”
However then he thought for a second longer, and remembered a sure actress/mannequin who appeared in 14 episodes of the present. “However possibly Elizabeth Hurley.” Cannot argue with that choice.
One other commenter questioned how, precisely, Crawford managed to bulk up his biceps to plausible superhero measurement in lower than a 12 months. Principally, he attributed it to his function on The Boys, however he additionally appeared to present a whole lot of credit score to fast, environment friendly exercise classes.
“It is good to have a present like The Boys; you could have a cause to do it, and it is enjoyable in that regard,” he stated. “However I nonetheless do it… I time my exercises, and I make my breaks in between units shorter. I attempt to get out and in of that place, as a result of I hate it. I hate the health club! However I really feel rather a lot higher after.”
He additionally added, later within the video, that not all of what you see when The Deep is in costume is definitely a results of Crawford’s exercise routine—a few of that’s padding, and uncomfortable padding at that, because the 35-year-old factors out.
Maybe probably the most fascinating concept within the video, although, comes from one commenter who famous that Crawford was “born to play Gambit.” Gambit, in fact, is a traditional character from Marvel Comics’ X-Males world.
“I agree with you!” he says, laughing. “I do love Gambit. I do not know if I am contractually allowed to say that. I will write a petition, and I will have you ever signal it.”
Many know Gambit greatest because the card-throwing Cajun from the comics (the character was launched in 1990), however he additionally notably had a pivotal function within the ’90s X-Males cartoon. The character by no means actually received a significant massive display screen function in a characteristic movie (he was performed, briefly, by Taylor Kitsch in X-Males Origins: Wolverine), however now that Disney owns the rights to X-Males, and the MCU may be searching for a Gambit of its personal, Crawford appears on board with the thought.
On the conclusion of the video, he makes point out of it once more—making us assume it is an concept that you just would not need to twist his arm too onerous for.
“Okay! I’ve heard what the web has to say, and I’ve responded,” he says. “Signal the petition. I am going to play Gambit. Love you guys.”
