After having narrowly avoided a roadblock, it appears that Lethal Weapon is again in danger of overthrowing and burning. Just a week after the series killed the dismissed character Clayne Crawford character, Lethal Weapon hit another surprising bulge on the road: Damon Wayans – his clashes with Crawford paved the way for Crawford's release – announced Wednesday that he too plans to leave the show. Wayans will go in December after the first 13 episodes of the third season.
"I really do not know what they are planning, but that's what I'm planning," said Wayan's Electronic Urban Report. "I am a 58-year-old diabetic and I work 1
"It's hard for me to play this loving, supportive father, husband, and friend on TV, and to be the type in life that says to everyone," I can not; I have to work, "Wayans continued, noting recently that he was not able to be there for his mother and daughter because of Fox's production planning when they underwent surgery." You have to look yourself in the eye and go , "Who are you?", Wayans added. "It can not be all about work. I come from a big family, a loving family, and I have not seen them. , , I have seven grandchildren. I missed concerts and promotions. It's not worth it for me. There is a better way to live life. "
In April, there were reports of Crawford's bad behavior on the set, and the actor responded to the allegations on Instagram, admitting he had been reprimanded twice on the show." The first reference was because I reacted angrily to working conditions Crawford, who wrote that he met with human resources, apologized and one from the United States, did not feel secure or conducive to good work under the guidance of a visiting director and a deputy director, who were furious with my answer Studio commissioned therapy – and "even shared a substantial portion of my paycheck with one of the parties involved as directed by the studio." The second reference, Crawford, said during a rate he addressed when a performer felt insecure after he was hit by a splinter during a special effect, this actor seemed to be Wayans, who later claimed that Crawford had been offensive.
In an August interview, Crawford said he never thought he was going to get fired. Fox and Warner Bros. meanwhile replaced the actor with Seann William Scott, whose own Lethal Weapon character, Wesley Cole, debuted during last week's premiere. During his own interview in August, Wayans said the atmosphere on the set had been "looser" since Crawford's exit.
"Nobody exaggerates," said Wayans. "We do and we enjoy coming home." As Wayans says goodbye, it will be up to Fox and Warner Bros., the future of the series.
Should the last nine episodes be ordered for the season, another new character would probably have to be substituted for Wayans. At this point, it may be worthwhile to ask everyone involved if the universe has tried to tell them about the long-term viability of this series.
