There’s a lethal dose of Hollywood action in Johnathan Fernandez’s future…
The Afro-Latino actor has been cast opposite Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans Sr. in Lethal Weapon, Fox’s hour-long pilot based on the 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 anew. There, he is partnered with LAPD Detective Roger Murtaugh (Wayans), 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 and Murtaugh.
Fernandez’s credits include Girls, Younger, Hey Girl and Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.
