Crawford is ready to shed his Gossip Girl image. He told Fox News, "I would love the challenge. I have not read the books, but what I know is that it is risqué, and to be honest, anything to shake up from the way I have been going would be good. Hey, if they ask me to come and read, I would definitely do so." He went on to joke, "I am only comfortable with S&M sex scenes! The other ones are just too simple and boring for me."
