Damon Wayans has finally spoken about his now-former co-star Lethal Weapon co-star Clayne Crawford. And here’s what we know: if Hollywood gave out awards for excellence in promoting a project, Damon would have been a shoo-in to win Best at Faking It. Because now we know that any enthusiasm Damon might have had for working with Clayne was as fake as Clayne’s name.
Fox fired Clayne Crawford for allowing the spirit of Mel Gibson to invade his body on set of Lethal Weapon The TV Show. But instead of cancelling the show, Fox just burned some sage, waved it around a little and announced that it’s renewing it for a 3rd season, replacing Clayne with Seann William Scott. And they gave his extraneous “n” its own trailer and everything!
We’ve been over this before, but let’s go over it again:
- Yes, they made a Lethal Weapon TV show.
- Yes, Clayne is a name that someone gave themselves. Clayne is what Clayne got when he mashed together a family name “Clan” and his Alabama hometown “Clay.”
Clayne played the Mel Gibson role for two seasons of Lethal Weapon, but he’s not going to play it in the third season after stories came out that he’s Mad Mel both in front of and behind the cameras. And apparently, Clayne found out that Fox fired him when we all did.
Even with sunglasses on, Team Cosby member Damon Wayans is emoting a vibe that tells me he would rather be teabagging Pinhead than posing next to that Boardwalk Empire-looking ass extra. There’s a good reason for that, because Damon hates him!
Deadline says that what’s been happening behind the cameras on the set of Fox’s Lethal Weapon TV show is much more interesting than what happens in front of them. Lethal Weapon is in its second season, and it does well for Fox, so a third season renewal was expected. But apparently, that’s up in the air thanks to one of the show’s two leads, Clayne Crawford, acting like a regular Thomas Gibson (but without the name recognition. Although, Thomas Gibson’s name also gives me a case of the Whos).
