'Leo Getz Justice' in the upcoming episode of Lethal Weapon
Amid rising tensions in and around the show, we believe Leo Getz, played by Thomas Lennon, will bring in some welcome comic relief.
The third season of 'Lethal Weapon' has premiered and we can't wait for episode 3 to air, as it will see the return of one of our favorite characters - Leo Getz.
The episode is titled 'Leo Getz Justice,' and amid rising tensions in and around the show, we believe Leo Getz, played by Thomas Lennon, will bring in some welcome comic relief.
Thomas Lennon has appeared in previous seasons of the series as Leo Getz, who is a coward but a fiercely loyal friend of Martin and Roger; he is also an ambulance-chasing attorney who was linked to the Cartel.
His relationship with the two protagonists is like that of one friend who we all hate as they talk a lot, and who at times talks to themselves when no one else is.
'The Odd couples' actor is loved by a lot of people who are excited to see him return in 'Lethal Weapon'.
Joe Pesci played Leo Getz in the 'Lethal Weapon' movies, and his character has become iconic among fans.
Lennon's character in the new 'Lethal weapon' is a little different from Pesci's, as he said in an interview to Cinema Blend that he will not be able to impersonate Pesci as his performance was "insane and so amazing and highly quotable."
"Matt [Miller] the showrunner called me. Before I said I would do it, we talked on the phone for a little while, and I said, 'You know, I can't do a Joe Pesci impersonation. I don't even seem in any way like a Joe Pesci type of person in my mind. Other than that I'm kind of little and bizarre.' And he said, 'That's not a problem. No one on the show is trying to be the people from the movies. It's all completely reimagined.' And I was like, 'If you're open to the idea of a bizarre weirdo that's just not at all like the one from the movies, I will totally try to be as bizarre for you as I can.' That's always a trick because Joe Pesci's performance is insane and so amazing and highly quotable" said Lennon.
The character of Leo Getz is an impressive one and it takes an amazing comic actor to portray it. Joe Pesci did it and so did Lennon in his own "bizarre" way and we cannot wait to watch 'Leo Getz Justice' which airs on October 16.
