First, he overreacted over working conditions that he believed were not safe. And another incident may have involved his co-star – Damon Wayans. Reportedly, the two had a dramatic verbal fight on-set and stopped talking to each other.

Since cast members’ contracts are renewed each year, the studio didn’t renew Crawford’s contract. Instead, they decided to replace the actor, although it may jeopardize the future of the project.

Meet American Pie alum, Seann William Scott. He will play a new character who will work together with Wayan’s Murtaugh. He may actually be Riggs’ brother! We can’t wait to see the two lead actors together on screen.


As for Crawford, he didn’t address the casting of the new actor directly. Clayne took to Instagram and shared a touching post, in which he congratulated the cast and crew on season 3 and thanked everyone for an incredible experience.

Riggs was a dream role and the experience will live with me forever. My heart is full. Good Luck [next] season!!
