Deadline is reporting that Nishi Munshi has signed up for a recurring role for the third season of Fox action drama series Lethal Weapon.
The first two seasons focused on the relationship between LAPD detectives Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh, with Riggs moving to Los Angeles attempting to start a new life after the loss of his wife and child, while Murtaugh overcomes a minor hearth attack and tries to avoid any stress in his life.
The third season sees a shakeup in one of the male leads, after the much documented departure/removal (however you want to call it) of Clayne Crawford playing the role of Martin Riggs and Seann William Scott now stars opposite co-lead Damon Wayans.
Nishi Munshi (whose credits include The Originals and Relationship Status) will be playing the role of ambitious new Deputy DA, Erica Malick, who begins working with Robbery/Homicide, building cases against high profile criminals. Erica’s straight-laced and zero tolerance attitude doesn’t leave a lot of room for Murtaugh and Cole’s crime-solving shenanigans.
The third season of Lethal Weapon stars Damon Wayans, Seann William Scott, Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Johnathan Fernandez, Michelle Mitchenor, Chandler Kinney, Dante Brown and Mykelti Williamson.
