Seann William Scott’s is to replace Clayne Crawford after a bitter experience of the team with him. The TV series is a redo of the classic buddy cop film franchise starring Dan Glover and Mel Gibson. Lethal Weapon season 3 is almost here. Now Mel Gibson and Dan Glover do not reprise their roles here, of course, Damon Wayans does as Roger Murtaugh, originally performed by Dan Glover. But for Crawford won’t reprise his character, Crawford was fired from the show in May of 2018. He played Martin Riggs, the role originally played by Gibson. So in place of Crawford, we will see Seann William Scott from the American Pie films.
So what happened to Crawford, Y’all must wonder. Scott and producers from the show have long tried to explain his absence. In April of ’18, we heard rumors about Crawford’s on-set behavior and how that had caused program’s renewal on the line. Clayne Crawford was accused of “emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment.” These accusations came only by members of the crew but the cast too. Clayne Crawford came with a public apology and tried to explain his behavior, but that didn’t go well with the team. So, as a result, he was fired.
Lethal Weapon Season 3: News
The producers after they fired Clayne were “scrambling to recast” another person in his place to make sure the series stayed for Season 3. But that’s not all. To make matters even, Wayans posted pictures online of how badly he was injured while filming a stunt gone wrong, directed by Clayne Crawford. He even made allegations that Clayne Crawford “hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea and busted his mouth open.”
Good riddance, I mean. So while Season 3 was still on hold, Scott was cast. Season 3 renewal news came shortly after. But of course, we have been told he won’t replacing Crawford as Riggs. No, that’s not all. Clayne Crawford went on Drinkin’ Bros Podcast to clear the air on the allegations.
“It’s a little different when you replace Becky or the mom off of Fresh Prince. Like it’s a little — like if they’d replaced the Fresh Prince, we’d have been like what the f**k are we watching anyway? That’s why I just did not think it was possible,” he said. “I just did not think they were gonna to get rid of me, I guess. And if they did, I thought they’d give me a buzz — just a jangle? Just grab 2 cans and a string and just be like, ‘You are not coming back. We feel like this is the Damon Wayans Show & people just don’t like you. So go the f**k back to Alabama you d**b h**k, thanks for playing.”
That’s about that. Clayne went ahead in May to congratulate the makers on Season 3 renewal. And the rest they say is history.
