Remember the 1999 thriller "The Bone Collector," in which Denzel Washington played a paralyzed forensic expert who solved crimes with the help of Angelina Jolie?

It was based on the bestselling book series by Jeffrey Deaver about Lincoln Rhyme, and it's now becoming a TV series. "Grimm" alum Russell Hornsby will star.  The NBC show, which will simply be called "Lincoln," could include storylines from several of Deaver's other books in the series.

Hornsby and Washington previously costarred in "Fences," which Washington directed.

His recent credits include Fox’s legal drama "Proven Innocent" and the Netflix series "Seven Seconds." He received a number of critics' and other nominations for his role in last year's drama "The Hate U Give."
