MATRIX RELOADED twin actors ADRIAN and Neil Rayment bagged the juicy roles in the film sequel after beating each other up at the audition.

The British brothers play the ruthless VIRUS TWINS in the sci-fi action movie - and bagged the parts after showing off their martial arts skills.

Neil says, "We asked the casting director if we could kick each other about a bit.

"Martial arts is an important part of the movie so we thought we would show what we could do."

Adrian adds, "We battered each other from wall to wall for two minutes solid. The director was a nervous wreck by the end of it.

"A couple of days later we were flying out to Los Angeles to cast out there. I think the martial arts clinched it for us."
