Clayne Craw­ford & da­mon wayans

Martin Riggs & Roger Mur­taugh, Lethal Weapon

Winnipeg Sun - - ENT-SHOWBIZ -

Clayne Craw­ford was fired from Lethal Weapon af­ter al­le­ga­tions of abuse and dis­putes with his costar Da­mon Wayans on set. Pro­duc­ers re­fused to bring back the show with Craw­ford still part of the cast, so his Martin Riggs char­ac­ter was killed off and Seann Wil­liam Scott was brought in to play a new role. Fol­low­ing the Sea­son 3 premiere last month, Wayans an­nounced he too will be leav­ing the show. “I’m done. Like Mur­taugh said, ‘I’m too old for this,’ ” the 58-year-old ac­tor said. There’s no word yet on if pro­duc­ers will find an­other co-star for Scott once this sea­son’s 13-episode run is up.
