I have a question

Is the same actor who played Jhonny the Boy the same guy who played the suicidal jumper in Lethal Weapon? They sure look alike.

Yes, its the same guy. Ironic, isn't it? It should also be noted, that Lethal Weapon ripped off the idea for that scene from a very simmilar scene in Dirty Harry.

Bit of tech trivia about that scene: As Gibson & Johnny jump of the edge, notice how the chain of the handcuff snaps and the stuntmen grab hands for the fall. however, these stuntmen are not shown hitting the bottom - that actually is Gibson & Johnny. They jumped off a crane right about the cameras eye.

No, it isn't.

Johnny the Boy is played by Tim Burns.

The Lethal Weapon jumper is someone else. I just looked up Lethal Weapon on the Internet Movie Database (follow the link below), but couldn't work out the actors name - I don't remember the jumping characters name. But if you look at the list, you'll see that Tim Burns isn't there.
