According to The Hollywood Reporter, 24 veteran Clayne Crawford has joined the cast of Fox‘s Lethal Weapon pilot as Martin Riggs.
Based on the 1987 feature film, the pilot stars Damon Wayans Sr. as Roger Murtaugh, an LAPD detective who must avoid stress following a minor heart attack. Partner with Riggs, an ex Navy SEAL and former Texas cop, stress may be the one thing Murtaugh can’t avoid.
The pilot will also feature The Fast and the Furious‘s Jordana Brewster as Dr. Maureen “Mo” Cahill, a hostage negotiator who also serves as the department’s in-house therapist.
The pilot will be directed by McG, but it is unclear if the project will go to series.
