He is portrayed by Damon Wayans Sr.
Roger Murtaugh was born 1966, being 50-years-old, having recently celebrated his 50th birthday, close around the same time of the birth of his newborn daughter, and his "minor" heart attack. He is a native of Inglewood, California, and currently resides in Sherman Oaks. He joined the LAPD in 1994, having been a 22-year veteran. He is known for taking pride in his work as a police officer, having been on the force for 22 years. Around the time of becoming a police officer then, he met a beautiful woman named Trish, who he ended up marrying and had three kids with: a son named Roger "RJ" Jr., a daughter named Riana, and another daughter named Harper, his newborn.
Six months after his "minor" heart attack and the birth of his newborn daughter, Harper, at the same time, he's recently been talking about getting back to work, but promises Trish that he'll be safe out there and watch over his health. The day returns to work, he meets Martin Riggs, a Navy SEAL veteran and a transfer from El Paso, Texas, who foiled the bank robbery, who he ends up being partnered with.
Murtaugh is known for taking his job as a police officer serious enough. As much as he takes the job serious enough, he also takes his health very serious, after having recently suffered a "minor" heart attack six months ago, after the birth of his newborn and after recently celebrating his 50th birthday, and he must avoid stress while maintaining a low level of stress in his life while being partnered up with Martin Riggs. He clearly can't stand Riggs at first, and thinks he is "very" dangerous and suicidal for now. He's even known for taking his family serious, too, being a family man.
He monitors his pulse and heart rate and stress levels with an Apple Fitbit watch he wears, thereby, being able to watch over his stress levels in being able to avoid as much stress as possible in the process, especially while maintaining it. As much he takes it serious enough, his wife Trish even counts on him to keep an eye on it as much as possible, which he promises her he would.
Murtaugh is bald, with a mustache. As a detective, he wears regular dress clothes such as dress pants, dress shirts, and blazer jackets, and occasionally a fedora hat and sunglasses. Sometimes, he even rarely wears a toboggan hat.
