Portrayed By: Danny Glover
Just like a number of our western gunslingers, Murtaugh is considering retirement at the beginning of the Lethal Weapon franchise. In fact, he would be the first to tell you that he is "too old for this shit."
That doesn't mean that he doesn't know his way around a pistol. Though Danny Glover's Murtaugh demonstrates proficiency with a firearm, he is remembered more for his catch-phrase than his rather impressive marksmanship. One of our favorite references to Murtaugh is from the How I Met Your Mother episode entitled "Murtaugh," in which Ted keeps a running list of things he is too old for. Thankfully, someone on the Internet wrote down both Ted's list and Barney's competing list that he believes he is too young to do.
