"Seann is a fantastic addition to this already incredible cast", said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. 'Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen.

Fans of Lethal Weapon will be happy to know that Fox just picked up the cop drama for season 3 today.
