Role on 24[]

Crawford played the role of Kevin Wade, a former acquaintance of Dana Walsh, during Season 8 of 24. Already a "drinking buddy" of Kiefer Sutherland (as he says in an interview), he originally auditioned for the role of CTU field agent Cole Ortiz, but lost to Freddie Prinze Jr. According to Crawford, the producers told him they needed "somebody a little softer", which is why they decided to go with Prinze, but assured him they would bring him back for another role. Although Crawford didn't believe them, the producers did call him back and offered him the role of Wade. Crawford was credited as a guest star and appeared in a total of 9 episodes.[1][2]
