*Johnathan Fernandez has joined Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans Sr. in Fox’s hourlong pilot for “Lethal Weapon,” based on the hit movie franchise.
In the pilot, written by Matt Miller and directed by McG, when Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Riggs (Crawford) suffers the loss of his wife and baby, he moves to Los Angeles to start fresh. There, he is partnered with LAPD Detective Roger Murtaugh (Wayans Sr), who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid stress in his life.
Fernandez will play Scorsese, a dry-toned and creative pathologist with the LAPD who works with Riggs (Crawford) and Murtaugh (Wayans Sr.)
Fernandez has previously had roles in “Girls,” “Younger,” “Hey Girl” and “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.”
