Clayne Crawford out at 'Lethal Weapon' as Seann William Scott Steps In

Riggs was a dream role and the experience will live with me forever. In light of all the turmoil, "the situation had escalated to a point where Warner Bros".

"Furthermore, I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention 'Lethal Weapon" is receiving because of these incidents'.

Seann William Scott was ultimately selected after approaching other actors for the role.

According to a press release from Fox, the network's TV reboot of the Mel Gibson-Danny Glover buddy-cop film franchise has been renewed for a third season, with the "American Pie" alum added to the cast to replace Clayne Crawford, who was sacked from the show over unspecified abusive behaviour on the set. Fox has ordered a third season of the hit action drama after a last minute scramble to replace the lead role opposite Damon Wayans.

"Lethal Weapon" star Clayne Crawford is looking at some good news and some bad news right now.




The series' ratings were enough to score a renewal, however the behavior of Clayne Crawford put the show in jeopardy. While not going into exact details, we're told that in each instance there were disciplinary actions taken by the studio and the behavior continued.

"Warner Bros. Television has decided not to renew Clayne Crawford's contract for Lethal Weapon", Warner Bros.

Lethal Weapon is the second show to be renewed this weekend; Fox had canceled the Andy Samberg comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, though NBC saved the show Saturday as part of their midseason 2019 plans.

"Lethal Weapon" is based on the feature film franchise of the same name. With Scott replacing Crawford, the show won't have to figure out whether Lethal Weapon could continue without a Riggs, and will give it a go with Scott being a maniac with a badge.

Days after multiple outlets, including THR, reported that Crawford had been fired from the series, the actor posted multiple messages on his verified social media accounts indicating that he had yet to be informed of his future on Lethal Weapon. "Fox and Warner Bros TV declined comment".
