Here's the Scoop...

It seems like lead actors get replaced on TV shows all the time. M*A*S*H, Bewitched, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Roseanne, Game of Thrones, you name it! Now, you can add Fox's Lethal Weapon to that list.

The hit '80s action franchise's television adaptation will be replacing star Clayne Crawford as Martin Riggs if the police drama is renewed for a third season.

Crawford, who stars opposite Damon Wayans as Roger Murtaugh, has been fired from the series due to his unprofessional behavior on set, The Hollywood Reporter noted, citing sources.

Fox and studio Warner Bros. Television have begun searching for a new star to take Crawford's place. The actor recently apologized on social media for two incidents that took place on set including getting angry at what he said was unsafe working conditions and a situation with another actor on set feeling unsafe after being hit by a piece of shrapnel in an episode he was directing.

He said he took responsibility for what happened due to being in charge. "I take great pride in treating everyone in life with dignity and kindness. I am very grateful for my job, and I work extremely hard at it. I feel a responsibility to do good work for my coworkers, for my family, for my home state, and most especially for the fans. I hope they will stick with me, and stick with the show," he said at the time.

Wayans is said to have stopped talking to Crawford, due to the situation worsening on set in recent months, TV Line reported.

Fox's decision on whether or not to continue Lethal Weapon may potentially be made by Monday when the company presents its fall lineup to advertisers in New York.

Be Well,

Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter reuniting for 'Bill & Ted 3'
Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are teaming up once again to star in a third Bill & Ted film titled, Bill & Ted Face the Music.

The long-in-development sequel will feature Reeves and Winter reprising their roles as time-traveling rockers Ted Logan and Bill S. Preston Esq. as they receive a warning from the future that a song they have yet to write will save the universe.

Bill & Ted creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black), have written the script with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) set to direct.

"We couldn't be more excited to get the whole band back together again. Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we've got a dream team!" Reeves and Winter said in a statement.

Reeves and Winter previously starred together in 1989's Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and in 1991's Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

"It's a cautionary tale," Reeves said in October about Bill & Ted Face the Music before it was made official. "Bill and Ted were supposed to save the world, but when we see them, they are, like, older and they haven't saved the world. Their children are grown up and the wives are kind of like, 'What is going on?' Bill and Ted are playing to nobody and they are still trying to write the song to save the world and it's just weighing on them."


'NCIS': Pauley Perrette 'worried' about fans ahead of 'sad' exit
NCIS star Pauley Perrette is "worried" about fan reaction to her "sad" exit from the show.

The 49-year-old actress said in a tweet Monday that her final episode as Abby Sciuto is sad but called it her "best work" on the CBS series. Tuesday's episode will mark Perrette's last appearance on the police procedural.

"I'm so worried about you guys for Tuesday's episode of the #GoodbyeAbby," Perrette told her 757,000 followers.

"It's sad, But I hope hope hope you will all watch," she said. "I Want the world to watch. I did my best work for you. And TONS of flashbacks. Everyone is there. Love you! Get everyone to watch please."

Perrette, whose character was mugged during last week's episode, told USA Today fans will need "a couple boxes of tissues" Tuesday.

"It's a heavy episode," the star said. "I gave it all I had emotionally, but I really wanted to give respect to the fans and to Abby and her legacy."

Perrette announced in October that she would be leaving NCIS after 15 seasons. She explained in an interview with TV Insider in April that she felt it was the right time to move on.

"I believe in God and the universe so firmly, and it just suddenly became blindingly apparent that now was the time," the actress said.

NCIS was renewed for a 16th season in April. The series co-stars Mark Harmon, David McCallum, Rocky Carroll, Brian Dietzen and Emily Wickersham.

Katy Perry sends Taylor Swift an apology letter, olive branch
The "Bad Blood" between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift has officially come to an end after Perry sent over an apology letter and an olive branch to Swift as she embarks on her Reputation stadium tour.

Swift posted a video of the letter and olive branch onto her Instagram story Tuesday. "I just got to my dressing room and found this actual olive branch. This mean so much to me," the singer said in the video that was captioned, "Thank you Katy."

"Hey old friend, I've been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and the feelings between us, I really want to clear air. I'm deeply sorry," the letter, which was partially obscured in the video said.

Perry and Swift have had a longstanding feud which Perry confirmed in May 2017 on the Late Late Show, was started when three dancers left Swift to work with her after she returned from a hiatus.

The incident gained more attention when Swift released "Bad Blood" which many believe was about Perry.

"I forgive her and I'm sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her. I think it's actually, like, I think it's time. There are bigger fish to fry, and there are real problems in the world," Perry previously said about the feud in July 2017.


Netflix renews 'Santa Clarita Diet' for third season
Netflix has renewed its horror-comedy Santa Clarita Diet, starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant, for a third season.

The series will return for 10 new half-hour episodes in 2019, Entertainment Weekly reported.

The official Twitter account for Santa Clarita Diet celebrated the Season 3 renewal with a video of clips taken from the series featuring characters saying the word "more."

"When 2 Seasons isn't enough," reads the caption for the video.

The show, which follows Barrymore as a flesh-eating zombie who tries her best to maintain a normal life with her family in the suburbs, returned to Netflix in March with Season 2.

"There's always more story. The whole season one took place over two weeks and season two takes place over two weeks, so they're still only about a month into this incredible change that they're going through," showrunner Victor Fresco told The Hollywood Reporter.


??? Guess Who ???

Which actress regretted dating Will Smith during his first marriage?

Jada Pinkett Smith regrets dating husband Will Smith while he was still legally married.

The 46-year-old actress said Monday on the debut episode of her Facebook talk show, Red Table Talk, that she "should've fell back" during Will's separation from his ex-wife, Sheree Zampino.

"The beginning between us was rough," Jada said in the interview with Zampino. "And here's the one thing I will say in hindsight -- because I did not understand marriage, I didn't understand divorce. I will say that I probably should've fell back."

"I would've fell back 'cause I feel like when Will and I started dating I had this thing in my mind. It was like, 'Okay, well, you did that, and that's done,'" she explained. "See, that's where I was wrong."

Jada and Will started dating in 1995 following Will's split from Zampino. Jada and Zampino are now on good terms, although the relationship took understanding and time.

"Now being a married woman and if Will and I were to get divorced now, my God," Jada said.

"So when I think back about where I was, some of my insensitivity, some of my inconsideration, just in regards to you guys unwinding a marriage."

Will is parent to 25-year-old son Trey with Zampino, and 19-year-old son Jaden and 17-year-old daughter Willow with Jada. Jada said in an open letter in 2013 that she and Zampino learned to love each other, in part for their kids.

"My blended family made me a giant... Taught me so much about love, commitment and it has been the biggest ego death to date," she wrote.
