Ed Westwick Tells Movieline About Trading Manhattan for Wuthering Heights

At last night's Young Hollywood Awards, Ed Westwick (seen above, accepting his Young Hollywood Breakthrough award) and Adam Lambert provided a squeal-inducing, one-two punch of potent metrosexuality. In a bid to codify his slightly dangerous sex appeal, then, Westwick will soon loosen his Gossip Girl ascot to stalk the moors in Peter Webber's new film adaptation of Wuthering Heights. We talked to Westwick on the the red carpet about his personal ties to Heights as well as the Californication cameo he's got coming up as a subversive student.

    The mind boggles as to what he could do with that trophy.

  • lala says:

    Ed Westwick is just soooo hot... I will be watching anything that has ed in it.. yummy....

  • momo says:

    Noooooooooooo! He will make a TERRIBLE Heathcliff. If they're going to redo it for the 123,434 time at least do an interesting spin, make Heathcliff ethnic since that's how he was basically described in the book.

  • Colander says:

    Sexy is the new black.

  • Rachel says:

    I love Heathcliff as played by Tom Hardy but Ed looks to be a very capable actor. I will definitely be watching to see how he plays this complex character.
