Hilarie Burton will make her return to crime dramas as it was just announced that the former One Tree Hill actress has been cast in Fox’s new drama, Lethal Weapon, and is set to play as an investigator with the Unites States Drug Enforcement Agency, according to TVLine.
After playing Peyton Sawyer on The CW‘s long running series One Tree Hill for six seasons, she moved on to White Collar, where she played Neal Caffrey’s (Matt Bomer) love interest for a few seasons, Sara Ellis, an insurance investigator, and now she is coming back to the crime dramas.
According to TVLine, she will star in one episode of Season 1 and she:
“will play DEA investigator Karen Palmer, who is described as “tough and smart” and “not afraid to speak her mind” in the official character breakdown. Karen will show up in the process of working the same case — which has been the focus of all her efforts — for the past three years.”
She has also starred in different Lifetime and Halkmark romance movies.
