Seann William Scott Joins 'Lethal Weapon'

  • Short answer Blame the NFL

Back on May 8 one of the show's two leads, Clayne Crawford, was sacked from the show. 'Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen.

"Lethal Weapon" secured a third season on FOX at the last minute following a big change to the show's cast.

"So apparently we have found the one who got @ClayneCrawford fired from #LethalWeapon Damon Wayans why else would he lock his Twitter account?" Another said, "That no official words have been spoken, just rumors spread by the tabloids". "I take responsibility for the incident, because I was in charge of the set".

The incidents involved outbursts and Crawford stated that he apologized for his part in it. With the character of Martin Riggs out of the show, Damon Wayans will continue to co-lead the series as Roger Murtaugh, and it's now been revealed that Seann William Scott will join him. The move comes after the show's renewal prospects were jeopardized by Crawford's reported on-set issues which included several disciplinary actions taken "over complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment". "Fox and Warner Bros TV declined comment".

The victory helped move the 2017/18 champions to the magical 100 point mark for the campaign. They also broke the league record for the most wins in a single season - 31.

Crawford was sacked from the Fox comedy series following bad behaviour on the set. They knew they would have to scramble to replace him with another actor or shuttle the show.

After discussing a number of actors, the studio and network agreed on Scott. Or would they introduce a new character, negating the name of the show? He is literally the "lethal weapon" referenced in the first film. The recasting left a bad taste in viewer's mouth and ratings for the show nosedived.

Do you still watch Lethal Weapon?

If the series' writers feel the need to explain Crawford's absence, they have an easy way out ― his character was shot in the season finale. Scott may play the Riggs character's brother in the third season if sources are to be believed.
