Lethal Weapon - Michelle Mitchenor to Recur; Kristoffer Polaha to Guest

Fox's Lethal Weapon remake is bulking up its onscreen team. The forthcoming drama series has cast Chi-Raq actress Michelle Mitchenor and Kristoffer Polaha (Ringer), The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Based on the 1987 film, Lethal Weapon centers on a Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs (Rectify's Clayne Crawford) suffers the loss of his wife and baby and moves to Los Angeles to start anew. He is then partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans Sr.), who, having recently suffered a "minor" heart attack, must avoid stress in his life.

Mitchenor will recur as Det. Sonya Bailey, Murtaugh's tough and dogged protege. A no-nonsense, confident and determined officer, Det. Bailey is at the point in her career where she wants to prove she belongs in the robbery/homicide division. She will make her debut in the second episode of the series. She is repped by MMV, Luber Roklin Entertainment and Bloom Hergott.

Polaha will also appear in episode two as Agent Bennet Hirsch, a tough and straightforward special agent with the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms). Agent Hirsch lends his expertise to Riggs and Murtaugh when a particularly deadly military-grade weapon is used during a crime in the Hollywood Hills.

The guest role brings Polaha back to Fox, where he previously starred on network dramas Backstrom and North Shore. The actor, whose other credits include Mad Men, Castle and Life Unexpected, is repped by Gersh.
