'Lethal Weapon' Adds Newcomer for Season 2 Recurring Role (Exclusive)
Lethal Weapon is adding a new member to the team.
Australian actor Andrew Creer has landed a recurring role on the Fox drama's upcoming second season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The newcomer will play Zach Bowman, a good-looking, eager detective on the robbery/homicide division who partners with Detective Bailey (Michelle Mitchenor). Zach is the type who continually steps into good fortune, and through a few lucky heroic moments on the job, has climbed the ranks quickly. He becomes the poster child for the LAPD, literally, as they are in need of good press after the series of disasters that Riggs (Clayne Crawford) and Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) leave in their wake.
Creer is the latest new addition for season two, joining Michelle Hurd, who will recur as the new chief at the LAPD.
A graduate of the prestigious Australian Academy of Performing Arts, Creers has had roles on the Australian series Tomorrow When the War Began and Barracuda, as well as in the upcoming films Rip Tide and Hurt. He is repped by Roar and Sue Barnett & Associates.
Loosely inspired by the film franchise starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, Lethal Weapon hails from Warner Bros. TV in association with Lin Pictures and Good Session Productions. Matt Miller, Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz and McG executive producer the hourlong show.
Lethal Weapon's second season premieres Tuesday, Sept. 26, at 8 p.m. on Fox.
