Even people that have never seen any of the films know Martin Riggs as Mel Gibson and Roger Murtaugh as Danny Glover, so how do you overcome this obstacle?

In the above exculsive interview, the pair discusses trying to meet and exceed expectations, why it was such a challenge, the pressure, and most importantly how they believe they did.
