Lethal Weapon’s Seann William Scott character revealed
According to Deadline, Fox has revealed new details on the new Seann William Scott character for the upcoming third season of its hit adaptation of the action franchise Lethal Weapon. Scott (American Pie) was cast to replace Clayne Crawford following his firing due to on-set issues with cast and crew members.
Scott will be portraying Wesley Cole, a war veteran and father who moves to Los Angeles to be closer to his child. Cole’s ex-girlfriend Natalie Flynn will be played by Psych vet Maggie Lawson. Flynn is an emergency room surgeon who met Cole in a war zone years prior to the start of the season, only for Cole to land in her ER once again. Cole will be partnering with Damon Wayans’ senior detective Roger Murtaugh, although how their partnership begins has yet to be announced.
Combining action, drama and humor, Lethal Weapon is based on the hit movie franchise. The series stars Damon Wayans, Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Jordana Brewster, Johnathan Fernandez, Dante Brown, Chandler Kinney and Michelle Mitchenor.
Maggie Lawson is most known for her role as detective Juliet “Jules” O’Hara on the hit USA detective comedy Psych, as well as starring roles on the short-lived sitcoms Back in the Game at ABC and Angel from Hell on CBS, as well as supporting roles on the final season of CBS’ Two and a Half Men and a recurring role on Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet.
Lethal Weapon is a production of Warner Bros. Television in association with Lin Pictures and Good Session Productions. Matt Miller, Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz and McG serve as executive producers.
