CLAYNE CRAWFORD (Dean)
What attracted you to this part?
It’s my first studio film. It’s a beautiful story – I think that attracted me. It’s a story about love and there weren’t any car chases, there weren’t any explosions and there wasn’t any gunfire and that’s what America needs. America needs that.
Will guys relate to this as well as women?
Absolutely – guaranteed. Guys will be like “Man, I don’t want to go watch this Mandy Moore movie,” then they’ll get in the movie theatre – I’ll tell you right you – that they’re going to be happy. They’re going to enjoy the film. I guarantee they might even cry.
You’ll guarantee that?
(Laughing) I’m not going to guarantee it but they’ve got to get a little emotional, it’s a great film. It’s beautiful.
What was it like working with Mandy Moore and Shane West?
It was great. We all went out to North Carolina and became a family. We became a family while we were out there and I think that’s what makes the film so cool. There was so much love involved and it was awesome. I don’t care what happens with this film, I made friends for life and that’s the best thing in the world.
How would you describe your character in “A Walk to Remember?”
He’s the bad guy. He ends up showing that he has a heart and it’s not so much that he’s a bad guy, he’s just a kid.
What’s next for you?
Right now I’m working on a film called “Midsummer’s Night Rave” that we’re trying to get going. The beautiful Lauren German is in this with me again. It’s a take-off on Shakespeare, modern day, set in a rave. It’s quite a stretch, quite different. It’s not real media-friendly with all the publicity about the raves and drug use, but it’s a beautiful script.

This much is clear: the team needs backup. Enter faces from earlier “Leverage” episodes – tough guy Quinn (Clayne Crawford); con man/thief Archie Leach (Richard Chamberlain), Parker’s (Beth Riesgraf) mentor; and hacker extraordinaire Chaos (Wil Wheaton). They’ll all be compensated, though Chaos requests “my usual fee and expenses — and Parker dresses up as Starbuck from ‘Battlestar Galactica.’” That’s a no, says Hardison (Aldis Hodge). “I’ll accept Sophie as Counselor Troi,” says Chaos.
In the first of many eyebrow-raising plot turns, Latimer pulls enough strings to get Victor out of prison early.
Meanwhile, Nate has cleared out of his place and moved the team into a new lair – old subway lines that were sealed up when tunnels were built under the bay in Boston. And aren’t they all clean and comfy looking! The expanded team gets together and start instant bonding. OK, not really. Chaos is mouthing off about his geek superiority to Hardison. Quinn gives them the hairy eyeball.
“Can I hit him?” he asks Eliot (Christian Kane).
“Which one?” Eliot replies.
“See,” Eliot says, “it’s not just me.”

Alabama native Clayne Crawford appears in FX Network’s coal-country crime saga “Justified”
Published: Tuesday, February 14, 2012, 8:30 AM
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Local fans of the FX Network’s coal-country crime saga “Justified” have yet another reason to tune in on Tuesday nights.
Character actor Clayne Crawford, who grew up in Clay and graduated from Hewitt-Trussville High School, has appeared in two previous episodes of the show this season, playing a suspicious prison medic named Lance, and he figures prominently in tonight’s “Thick as Mud” episode.
The 33-year-old Crawford, whose movie credits include “A Walk to Remember” and “A Love Song for Bobby Long, “ played another heavy in the 2010 season of the Fox real-time crime drama “24,” in which he appeared in several episodes as an ex-boyfriend who stalks and blackmails a Counter Terrorist Unit data analyst.
“I never look at them as bad guys,” Crawford said in a 2010 interview with The Birmingham News. “I look at them as guys that are misunderstood, guys that didn’t get that love from a certain person. They’re still looking for something. They’re still trying to figure out who they are. And through that, they end up hurting a lot of people.”
Now in its third season, “Justified” stars Timothy Olyphant, formerly of HBO’s “Deadwood,” as a U.S. Marshal trying to bust up a rural Kentucky drug ring known as the Dixie Mafia. Birmingham native Walton Goggins, who previously starred in the FX detective series “The Shield,” plays the good ol’ boy fugitive Boyd Crowder.
“Justified” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on FX.
Exclusive: The Baytown Disco Poster
ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at the poster for action-comedy The Baytown Disco, starring Billy Bob Thornton, Eva Longoria, Thomas Brodie Sangster, Clayne Crawford, Daniel Cudmore, Travis Fimmel, Andre Braugher and Paul Wesley. The movie hits theaters in 2012.
The rousing rebel spirit of a family of Southern thugs takes off at breakneck speed in “The Baytown Disco” — a wickedly playful, high-velocity action-comedy in which three infamously ruthless Alabama brothers find themselves on the wrong side of crooked cops, relentless Feds, mad mobsters, road pirates, tomahawk-wielding bikers, tricky femme fatales and an unforgettable cast of characters as colorful as they are lethal when they finally try to do a single good deed.
Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton and Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria headline this wildly explosive, yet ultimately moving, tale of honor breaking out among thieves with madcap results. It all starts when the fetching Celeste (Longoria) has a falling out with her nefarious ex-husband Carlos (Thornton) who kidnaps her beloved son, Rob (Thomas Brodie Sangster). Knowing her ex can be a maniacal psychopath, not to mention a bit trigger-happy, she turns for help to the most bad-ass, lawless hit-man trio in Alabama: the Oodie Brothers.
Ringleader Brick (Clayne Crawford, “24,” “The Glades”), mute wrestling phenom Lincoln (Daniel Cudmore, “The Twilight Saga”), and the baby of the brothers, the kick-ass G.I. McQueen (Travis Fimmel, “The Beast”) are known for being mean as a bag of rattlesnakes –and measly kidnap rescues are not on their menu of services. But when Brick is unexpectedly moved by Celeste’s plight, what he thinks is going to be an easy smash-and-grab job turns out to be the most hair-raising and hilariously intense adventure of his and his brothers’ harrowing careers.
Suddenly the Oodies have their hometown Sheriff (Andre Braugher, “Men of a Certain Age,” “Salt”), in a tangle; a pesky DEA Agent (Paul Wesley, “Vampire Diaries”) on their trail, and Carlos and his heinous assortment of henchman out for their hides. With no one quite who or what they seem, they are headed for a showdown — and a shot at redemption — they never saw coming.
