Lethal Weapon‘s Clayne Crawford is taking aim at his first TV role since departing the Fox drama last year, signing on to star in the June installment of Hulu’s horror anthology Into the Dark, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The movie-length episodes of the 12-part series roll out monthly, with each installment centering on a holiday contained within said month. Crawford’s Father’s Day-themed episode — titled “They Come Knocking” — finds the actor playing a recent widower who takes his two daughters on a road trip where he finds his family in the crosshairs of terrifying supernatural entities. The cast also includes Josephine Langford, Robyn Lively, Lia McHugh and Dwight Hicks.
Crawford was written out of Lethal Weapon last spring at the end of a stormy second season that found the actor allegedly clashing with co-lead Damon Wayans on several occasions. He was replaced in Season 3 by Seann William Scott.
Last August, four months after his Lethal exit, Crawford spoke out about what he deemed “blatant f—king lies” regarding his alleged on-set behavior.
