The original stars of the “Lethal Weapon” franchise are not appearing on Fox’s TV adaptation anytime soon.

In a recent interview with TVLine, showrunner Matt Miller revealed that they’ve actually talked about the idea of bringing Mel Gibson and Danny Glover to the show. “That sounds like a really, really fun idea, and we’ve talked about it a little. But right now, we don’t have any plans,” Miller said when asked if the dynamic duo, who originated the roles of Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh, will ever make a cameo on the series.

Whether or not Gibson and Glover will get to appear on the show, Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans, who now play Riggs and Murtaugh on the TV series, have high regard for both actors.

“I’m such a fan [of Gibson],” Crawford told Esquire last year, before admitting that he almost felt guilty playing the role of Riggs. “I feel like it should have been put in a time capsule and left alone. And I certainly don't understand why they wanted me to do it. But that’s what gets me through the day.”

“Mel Gibson could care less about who I am or what we’re doing, but I hope I make him proud,” Crawford added. “If he could watch this and say right on, that would be the ultimate goal.”

Meanwhile, Wayans revealed in an interview with Inquirer last June that Glover’s approval of his portrayal of Murtaugh is hugely important to him.

“I haven’t talked to Danny Glover,” Wayans said. “And if I were to be in the same room with him, I would probably be a little uncomfortable. [And] if he said he didn’t like it, I’d probably quit the show.”

At a screening of the TV series at the 10th anniversary of the PaleyFest Fall TV preview event in Los Angeles last year, Wayans explained why he chose not to reach out to Glover after he was cast on the show. “To alleviate the trepidation, you can’t go pet the tiger,” Wayans said (via New York Daily News) at the time. “It would be flattering if after this airs, you get a call from Mel Gibson or Danny Glover saying, ‘Hey, guys, good job.’ … [So] I wouldn’t [reach out to him]. I’d be too intimidated.”
