Seann William Scott's tough cop act has social media swooning over him after 'Lethal Weapon' premieres
He's sexy, he's smart, he's super efficient and has a jawline that can cut glass - Twitter certainly seems to approve of Detective Wesley Cole
'Lethal Weapon's season 3 started with a bang. After Clayne Crawford's exit last season, the show did not seem like it would make it - for the simple reason that fans couldn't get over Clayne's character Martin Riggs leaving the show. Crawford's character was certainly a huge part of the show - badass, messed up but with a heart of gold. His exit was quite chaotic too. He was allegedly violent on the sets and even hurt some of the cast and crew while filming and the network decided to let him go. A Twitter war ensued and things got really ugly. Damon Wayans accused Clayne of injuring him even went to the lengths of posting pictures and sound bites. Clayne fired back and even denied all the allegations, calling it a blatant lie.
'American Pie's Seann William Scott was brought in as a replacement and although we were skeptic about the choice, he's certainly proved everyone wrong with a fantastic (and hot as hell) appearance in the season premiere. He's sexy, he's smart, he's super efficient and has a jawline that can cut glass - Twitter certainly seems to think so.
Rigg's character too got a nice send-off - the storyline was tied up well and we do get some closure. Even though they killed him off, his presence was felt throughout the episode. His time on the show was honored, even though some fans thought that it was pretty fake. One fan tweeted, "Tuesday was a busy Twitter night because of #LethalWeapon but since Riggs is gone, I can’t....watched the first 15 minutes to check it out, but seeing Murtagh all sad and fake crying in the hospital just pissed me off."
I like Cole's attitude. #LethalWeapon perfect fit for a partner!— Terreka❤BIGGA (@Tranquil_8) September 26, 2018
Crawford was seriously amazing as Riggs and fans will always feel his absence but Scott truly deserves the chance - he is literally breathing life back into the show. Scott plays Detective Wesley Cole, CIA agent turned LAPD detective. Fans also feel that Roger has finally found a partner he truly deserves. Their chemistry is palpable but not in the Murtaugh-Riggs way. It's more like someone Trish would totally approve of.
Wasnt sure i'd like the new #LethalWeapon but i was wrong. Boy am i glad i was wrong. Awesomeness!— becca jones (@jonesbec71) September 26, 2018
What's really great about Cole's character is that he isn't trying to replace Riggs and neither is he trying to get into Clayne's shoes. There's also the whole element of him trying to get his life back together - which is a continuation of something Riggs was trying to do. He is a solo show on his own and he clearly knows that. We certainly look forward to a whole new season full of Detective Cole!
