‘Lethal Weapon’ Taps ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Star for a Father-Daughter Story
Actor Adrian Pasdar will be lending his acting chops for an episode of Fox's "Lethal Weapon" television series. With a father-daughter story prepped for Pasdar, the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." alum will bring spice to the Los Angeles scene.
"Lethal Weapon" bigwig Matthew Miller spills more about the how the character will play on season two's fourth episode. According to TV Line, the actor, who also appeared in The CW's "Supergirl" and USA Network's "Colony," will start the episode with him stealing from people riding a private jet. He then exits by jumping from the plane and gliding down via parachute.
Additionally, several other actors will make a comeback on "Lethal Weapon." As reported by Den of Geek, the neurotic, ambulance-chasing lawyer Leo Gents will be joining season two, thanks to actor Thomas Lennon. The number of episodes Getz will be seen were not disclosed by the producers, though, which means it is unsure if he will stay for more than an episode.
"Lethal Weapon" is the newest television series based on the movie series of the same name, with Mel Gibson and Donald Glover playing the original cop duo. Picked up by Fox last 2016, the first season of "Lethal Weapon" ran for 18 episodes and is currently preparing for its second season. Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford now play the lead characters Roger Murtaugh and Martin Riggs, respectively.
The series follows the men in uniform of the Los Angeles Police Department as they take on different crime scenes and take the bad guys to custody. Reviews for "Lethal Weapon" have been mixed to average, though the show has been getting more positive reviews in the weeks following its premier.
Season 2 of "Lethal Weapon" will premiere on September 26, 2017 on Fox, moving its original timeslot from Tuesdays to Wednesday nights.
