Rectify's Clayne Crawford Boards Amazon's David E. Kelley Legal Drama

Clayne Crawford, a Critics Choice Award nominee for his work as Rectify‘s Ted. Jr., has booked a recurring role on Amazon’s recently greenlit legal drama from TV vet David E. Kelley.

Ordered straight to series in December, the currently untitled drama stars Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo) as a lawyer on a quest for redemption, in what is described as a 21st Century David vs. Goliath battle fought in the American legal system. William Hurt (Humans) also stars.

Details on Crawford’s role are under wraps, though his story arc is said to be pivotal. The actor will juggle this project with Sundance’s Rectify, which starts production on its final season this spring.

In addition to Rectify, Crawford’s TV credits include NCIS: New Orleans (as LaSalle’s brother Cade), Rogue, Graceland, Justified, The Glades and Season 8 of 24.
