Forest Whitaker to play a Pawn?
Forest Whitaker and his Shield co-star Michael Chiklis will be reuniting for crime thriller Pawn.
The Oscar-winning actor - who guest starred on the cop drama in seasons five and six as ex-LAPD Lieutenant Jon Kavanaugh - will join David A Armstrong's directorial debut, reported Deadline.
Ray Liotta and Common are said to be in talks to appear in the indie movie about a hostage situation gone wrong, as an ex-convict "becomes entangled in a manipulative chess game between the Feds, local police and the mob".
Production is set to begin on December 1.
Forest, who last appeared in romantic comedy Our Family Wedding alongside America Ferrera, has been filming action thriller The Last Stand with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
