'Gossip Girl' alum Chace Crawford is ready to move away from his not-so-squeaky CW image and take on the mantle of Christian Grey, the wealthy entrepreneur with a penchant for BDSM from the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' series, which will supposedly be turned into what we can only imagine will be a very bad NC-17 film.

“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,” Crawford said of the role, because let's face it, what else is he doing these days.

“Hey, if they ask me to come and read, I would definitely do so," he continued. "I don’t even know what the character is like; I haven’t read anything or heard anything about it!”

Hear that, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' people? Chace Crawford knows absolutely nothing about the books you're turning into a movie, but he'd like to star in that flick anyway.

When told that the script is basically porn with S&M-style sex scenes, he joked, “I am only comfortable with S&M sex scenes! The other ones are just too simple and boring for me.”

“I actually think, whether it is a sex scene, or screaming at something to get something across ... I think it is kind of attacked the same way, and you’re in the work mode, and you stay professional. It has never been awkward or intimidating.”

While not currently on any set (because he's one of the many out-of-work 'Gossip Girl' cast members), Crawford spent his unshaven time partying in New Orleans during the Super Bowl and working for Gillette razors as part of its 'Kiss & Tell' experiment.

So yeah. There you go. That's what Chace Crawford's life is like now. Which might explain why he'll take any project -- even one he doesn't know anything about.
