I don't want to judge other projects, but for me I think goes to where Clayne Crawford was as a human being when I read the material and where Damon Wayans was a human being when he read the material, and what he went through with his medical history. That was not the case. It was an unfortunate event that happened in spite of all precautions and procedures being followed. According sources who spoke with the , Crawford has been fired and multiple actors have been given the offer to take over the part of Martin Riggs — if the show were to get renewed for a Season 3, that is — and have passed.

But Miller's exit has been followed with against him that he's denied , and his co-stars said. Wayans left the set, and production shut down for the day. I've never gone without acting, whether it's in my buddy's film or on stage or it's in my backyard or going and doing a recurring role. But behind the scenes, things weren't quite so rosy.
Lethal Weapon airs Tuesdays on Fox. Damon Wayans had made statements about leaving the show. So we would have to find out on the day. Before he even signed onto the series, Crawford had hesitations about working with Wayans due to his alleged bad reputation in the industry. I told him that we could bring Steve Harvey in from the Family Feud today and the audience would embrace it.
What to do: The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news, saying, 'multiple sources' have told them that the 40-year-old actor has been removed from the series The star of the highly rated reboot apologized in April after it was reported that he has faced disciplinary action for behavior on set that some characterize as 'emotional abuse' and 'creating a hostile work environment.
