Fox renews 'Lethal Weapon,' replaces star with Seann William Scott

Clayne Crawford Hilarie Burton

A new Martin Riggs has been found to replace Clayne Crawford on Fox's Lethal Weapon - Seann William Scott. Will he survive and leave to Texas with Molly and her boy, or will season 3 premiere with us being bystanders to Rigg's funeral? Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen.

Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment at Fox Broadcasting Company, announced "Lethal Weapon" s renewal Sunday, along with the reveal that Seann William Scott ("American Pie") will be joining the cast next season as a new character who folds into a partnership with Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans).


Previously, there were two known instances of bad behavior on set, prompting him to release a public apology on Twitter. The actor recently apologized for two incidents for which he was reprimanded during the sophomore season. Word broke last week that Crawford had officially been fired. The news is now in from Fox and there's good and bad news for fans of the show. The series, based on the hit feature films starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, stars Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Jordana Brewster, Johnathan Fernandez, Dante Brown, Chandler Kinney, and Michelle Mitchenor. Crawford addressed the complaints in a lengthy Tweet, but Fox and Warner Bros TV were already on the hunt for a replacement. I appreciate and respect the work of everyone involved.

Lethal Weapon has gone from being in serious jeopardy to scoring a surprise season three renewal thanks to a shrewd re-casting. Sources have told EW that the decision was a hard one and was due to Crawford exhibiting a pattern of toxic behavior on the set and that there is video and audio evidence of such behavior.


Lethal Weapon is a reliable performer for Fox but the show's future was cloudy due to some behind the scenes issues revolving around Crawford.

The is the first series regular role for Scott, who first broke out as part of the American Pie franchise but who has shown considerable range through films like Role Models, The Rundown, and Goon.
