  • Family Guy (2017) as Football Player / Wedding Officiant


  • Actor Allusion: A would-be example. In Gossip Girl, Blair mentions herself and Chuck role-playing Wuthering Heights. Westwick had been cast to play Heathcliff in a new adaptation but was dropped not long before the episode where Blair makes the mentioning aired.
  • Creator Backlash: Westwick did not approve of some of Chuck's more depraved actions in Gossip Girl. His mother, a psychiatrist, would call him up after certain episodes and tell him she's worried about Chuck.
  • Fake American: He's English but played American Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl.
  • The Other Marty: He was the original actor cast as Mickey Argyll in the 2018 miniseries adaptation of Ordeal by Innocence, but after filming was completed Westwick was accused of sexual assault. Although no charges were ultimately brought against Westwick (who denied the allegations), in response the creators of the miniseries recast Christian Cooke as Mickey and reshot all of Mickey's scenes.
  • Romance on the Set: Dated Gossip Girl co-star Jessica Szohr when the series was still ongoing.
