Chace plays “White Mike” in the super-gritty film Tweleve, and HollywoodLife.com was at the NYC premiere, where he talked about having to lose weight for his role.

Chace Crawford is a very believable drug dealer! We spoke to the Gossip Girl star July 28 at the NYC premiere of his upcoming film Twelve, and we must say Chace really embodied his role as White Mike. He plays a drug dealer to the rich teens of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, and even though the setting overlaps a bit with Gossip Girl, Chace tells HollywoodLife.com this role was a drastic change from Nate Archibald.

“I took a month off there and just sort of broke off from my usual routine to become White Mike,” Chace told us exclusively. “I dropped some weight, looked different got into character a bit. It was really liberating … it was a much different pace than working on Gossip Girl, which can be a zoo of a production. You know, just with the fans and all that … Twelve was more incognito.”

Joel Schumacher, the director of Twelve, felt Chace played his intense role perfectly.

“I think Chace is fabulous,” Joel gushed to us. “I think he took on something he had never done before and had to dig so deeply into grief and many things. I supported him, but he had it in him.”

After the film, celeb guests went to The Standard Hotel for a swanky afterparty, and spent the night fawning over Chace while drinking Moet Ice Imperial. Yum!

We definitely suggest catching this flick when it hits theaters Aug. 6!
