The coming Lethal Weapon pilot has cast Rectify alum Clayne Crawford in the role of Martin Riggs. Crawford will star opposite Damon Wayans Sr. in Fox’s pilot. Featuring a script by Matt Miller, the project is directed by McG. The pilot follows Riggs, a former Texas cop and Navy SEAL who moves to Los Angeles for a fresh start following the loss of his wife and baby. There, he’s partnered with veteran LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (Wayans) who, having recently suffered a minor heart attack, must avoid stress.
Jordana Brewster also joins the cast as Dr. Maureen “Mo” Cahill, the LAPD’s hostage negotiator and in-house therapist and Kevin Rahm will play LAPD Captain Avery.
