According to the Hollywood Reporter, Crawford will play a "war-protesting butcher" who becomes a potential love interest for Keener's daughter.

Crawford is currently one of the stars of the CW series 'Gossip Girl,' on which he plays hottie Nate Archibald. He was expected to lead the upcoming 'Footloose' remake, but dropped out in April over reported scheduling issues.
