BOOM goes the casting dynamite!
Former Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford is heading back to the small screen, as multiple outlets confirm he has signed on to anchor Boom, an upcoming pilot on ABC that will chronicle an oil discovery in North Dakota.
If picked up, the drama will track how this development leads to an economic explosion in a small country town.
Crawford will portray Billy, a resident who moves to the town of Bakken with his girlfriend in the hopes of escaping some major debt risking both of their lives in the process.
He joins cast members Don Johnson and Scott Michael Foster on the series.
Since Gossip Girl concluded its six season run in 2012, Crawford's only television appearance was a guest role on Glee's 100th episode.
