Golden Brooks Loses ‘Lethal Weapon’ Role To This Former ‘Girlfriends’ Co-Star!


Last Friday, some executives from FOX announced that a Lethal Weapon pilot starring Damon Wayans as Roger Murtaugh has been picked up for a series! It’s been a long time since Wayans starred in My Wife and Kids, so this show will be a delightful return to tv. So who’s playing Murtaugh’s wife, Trish, you may ask? Well, it was going to be Golden Brooks, but according to Deadline, she is no longer apart of the cast and has been ousted by her former ‘Girlfriends’ co-stars– Keesha Sharp! How awkward…

Deadline reports, “Keesha Sharp, who plays attorney Johnnie Cochran’s wife Dale in the hit FX miniseries American Crime: The People vs. OJ Simpson, is set to co-star opposite Damon Wayans Sr. in Lethal Weapon, Fox’s hourlong pilot based on the hit buddy cop action comedy movie franchise. Girlfriends alumna Sharp, who will play one of the lead female roles, Trish, replaces fellow former Girlfriends star Golden Brooks, who was originally cast in the part. The decision was made after the project’s table read last night.”

We know how especially hard it is for black actresses to find work in Hollywood, but thankfully with the Wayans Dynasty coming back to tv, we can expect to see more jobs to go around for everyone! We look forward to seeing you in your future projects, Golden! Keep your head up!
