Clayne Crawford loved working with Jeffrey Dean Morgan on ‘The Integrity of Joseph Chambers’, thanks to ‘One Tree Hill’ star Hilarie Burton Morgan. As Crawford reveals to The List, “Jeff’s wife, Hilarie, was there” [‘Lethal Weapon’] set with me. [That is] another incredible band. I love her dearly and I was able to meet Jeff a few years ago and understand why she fell in love with him.” He continues, “He has such a big, beautiful heart and he loves to play. He likes to create and be an actor, which is exciting.”

Crawford not only forged an immediate bond with Morgan, but also reunited with his former “Lethal Weapon” co-star, Jordana Brewster, for the new film. “I’m thankful they both said yes and came out during a dadgum pandemic in central Alabama,” he explains. “It was wonderful, and I’m glad Jeff and I got to play together, because we’ve been talking about doing it for a while.”

Fans of both Crawford and Morgan will hope this isn’t the pair’s first and last collaboration, and Crawford feels exactly the same. “Now I’m trying to find something where we can have a little more screen time together,” says the “A Walk to Remember” actor. “I had Jeff in Birmingham for 24 hours. I flew him in, I shot him, and then we flew his ass back home… I thought, ‘We must be bank robbers or do something, man, [where] we’re together throughout the film.’ We’ll discuss that and figure out what that path looks like.”
