Happy 29th birthday, Chace Crawford! The Texas-born dreamboat, made famous by his swoon-worthy role as Nate Archibald on Gossip Girl, has proven life extends far past the golden bounds of the Upper East Side and has quite the lineup of upcoming projects. Not only is the actor slated to star in two indie-flick comedies—Undrafted and Mountain Men—but he also has the horror film Eloise, which isset to debut later this year. Then there is a role in an untitled romantic-drama project with Academy Award–winning director Warren Beatty. What character Crawford will play isn't clear, but he will be part of an ensemble cast alongside Lily Collins and Matthew Broderick.

Whatever this mysterious top-secret project may be, we know he’ll look sexy doing it. Take a peek at the Crawford sans shirt and see more of Hollywood's best abs here!
