Two cops talking:
RIGGS: We bury the fuckers. [the criminals -- drug dealers] (....) We do this right, we get famous. Do shaving ads and shit. Girls, money....
MURTAUGH: Yeah, sure, with our luck, we'll be doin' Forest Lawn commercials.
RIGGS: Bullshit! We got the edge, Cochise.
Roger doesn't understand what edge.
RIGGS: Roger, they think I'm dead. I'm a corpse. [the criminals shot at Riggs and thought they killed him, but he wore a bulletproof vest]
Lethal Weapon, movie

Does that mean "be actors in TV commetcials"? Thank you.

    Yes. Famous people often endorse products in TV commercials.
    (Shaving commercials generally feature attractive men (who are often wearing only a towel). Forest Lawn is a cemetery.)

    Yes. But note Forest Lawn is a famous cemetery, so the second use might actually mean "we'll be dead".
