While the hunky star, best known for his role as Nate Archibald on CW series Gossip Girl, has plenty of experience acting, the insider says unlike the rest of the cast, "his character will not be singing -- as of now." As E! News reported Friday, Jan. 10, Crawford has a role on the show's 100th episode, which will air in two parts on March 18 and the following Tuesday.

Former Glee stars expected to return for the special episode include Kristin Chenoweth (April), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), Heather Morris (Brittany), and Mark Salling (Puck).
