Seann William Scott, best known for playing the randy Stifler in the 1999 comedy "American Pie", will replace Clayne Crawford as Damon Wayans' co-star on Fox's "Lethal Weapon". Having been fired as a result of the renewal, Crawford posted a picture on Instagram offering his well wishes to the rest of the cast and congratulating them on the new season.
Scott will play a new character who becomes a partner, according to reports.
"Warner Bros. Television has decided not to renew Clayne Crawford's contract for Lethal Weapon".
The Lethal Weapon spinoff TV series is coming back for a third season.
"To my cast and crew - CONGRATULATIONS on season 3!" My heart is full.
"I have learned that Crawford has had a history of bad behavior on the show, and that he has been disciplined several times over complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment", Deadline reporter Nellie Andreeva wrote.More news: 53 killed by lightning, thunderstorms in one night across four States

Prior to being fired, Crawford issued an apology and offered his side of the story, claiming he was reprimanded because he "reacted with anger to working conditions that did not feel safe", and revealed he was forced to undergo "studio-appointed therapy".
Warning. The next paragraph contains spoilers about the Season 2 finale of Lethal Weapon. Naturally, there are exceptions (Fargo, Hannibal, Bates Motel, Westworld), but I wasn't exactly that jazzed about Lethal Weapon.
"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already unbelievable cast", said Thorn.
It will be the first network series role for Scott. Crawford played the loose cannon cop Martin Riggs, originated by Mel Gibson in the 1987 film "Lethal Weapon", alongside Damon Wayans, who revived Danny Glover's Roger Murtaugh from the film. In the cliffhanger episode, Martin Riggs plans to move to Texas with Molly and her son, but then Garrett arrives and shoots him in the chest.
"Well we know Damon wayans ran his mouth on Twitter about clayne like a little b*tch".
