Chace Crawford to play butcher in indie drama. Credit mug shot beard.

Posted on

Image Credit: Jamie McCarthy/WireImage.coGossip Girl star Chace Crawford has joined Catherine Keener and Jane Fonda in the cast of Peace, Love and Misunderstanding, Variety reports. Per the trade, Keener stars as a New York lawyer who takes haven at her hippie mother’s farmhouse after her husband leaves her. Fonda will play the hippie mother; Crawford will costar as “an anti-war butcher who arouses the romantic interest of the daughter of Keener’s character.” I get the arousing part, but “anti-war butcher”? I’m not saying there was a silver lining to his recent arrest for misdemeanor pot possession, but only after seeing that beard in his mug shot would I have thought he could pull off a butcher. (The stubble in photos like this one simply doesn’t cut it.)
