Bill Murray Reminisces About Slingin' Little Caesars Pizza

Itinerant viral-video elf Bill Murray appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night and talked about making pizzas at Little Caesars earlier in life, "back when Little Caesars was really great." (So, like, presumably before they attempted to turn "our pizzas are old!" into a marketing angle.) He worked there with… » 10/22/14 11:36am 10/22/14 11:36am

Bill Murray's Memes Now Outshine His Movies, And St. Vincent Won't Help

What was the last great Bill Murray performance? Maybe Broken Flowers from 2005? Lost in Translation from 2003? Nowadays, some of his best work—or at least the work that gets the most attention—is nowhere near the big screen. He shows up at bachelor parties. He crashes regular folks' engagement photos. He whips… » 10/14/14 10:25am 10/14/14 10:25am

Bill Murray On His Personal Philosophy

Bill Murray showed up after a screening of Ghostbusters in Toronto yesterday, where he spent the better part of an hour answering questions from fans. His best answer was in response to a question about his penchant for weird, unannounced hangouts (crashing the above couple's engagement photoshoot, for instance). » 9/06/14 10:20am 9/06/14 10:20am

Unfairly Slimed: It's Time To Forgive Ghostbusters II

In the weeks leading up to June 16, 1989, I can only imagine how incessantly my seven-year-old self pestered my parents to go see Ghostbusters II. I spent years obsessed with the 1984 original, once watching it on repeat from the moment I woke up to the moment I got sent to bed, wearing my plastic proton pack and… » 6/20/14 11:09am 6/20/14 11:09am

Bill Murray Crashed This Couple's Engagement Photos

Bill Murray, renowned Ghostbuster and funny guy who just kind of shows up and says shit to the delight of everyone around him, decided he'd be cool with being in Erik Rogers and Ashley Donald's engagement photos. They're quite the trio. » 6/11/14 10:29pm 6/11/14 10:29pm

Bill Murray Channels Harry Caray For Minor League Promo

The Toledo Mud Hens will be hosting Ghostbusters Night on May 30, and they somehow managed to get Bill Murray to cut this promo for the event. I didn't even know Murray had a Harry Caray impersonation in his bag, but this isn't terrible. All those beers he shared with Caray seem to have paid off. » 5/14/14 6:10pm 5/14/14 6:10pm

The Time Bill Murray Tried To Choke A "Medium-Talent" Comedian

Martin Mull was a lot of things—a brilliant comedian, a folk singer, an egomaniac—but one thing he will always be remembered for is almost getting himself killed by Bill Murray. » 5/05/14 10:24am 5/05/14 10:24am

Watch Bill Murray And Harry Caray Kick Off The Cubs' First Night Game

Twenty-five years ago today, the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies played the first-ever night game at Wrigley Field. After having only played day games since claiming the park as home in 1916, the Cubs finally succumbed to pressure from MLB, which threatened that if the team ever won a pennant they'd have to… » 8/08/13 4:55pm 8/08/13 4:55pm

Bill Murray Fed His Divot To A Fan At The Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Last year, Bill Murray showed up at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am wearing a ghillie suit and ready to punt some footballs, so it was hard to imagine how he could possibly one-up himself at this year's tournament. And yet, that's exactly what he did. » 2/11/13 2:25pm 2/11/13 2:25pm

Charles Swan Will Make You Hate Charlie Sheen All Over Again

It always struck me as so strange that Oliver Stone, when he was making his name with Platoon and Wall Street, saw Charlie Sheen as his ideal everyman, the audience representative, the proxy, the innocent surrounded by the rot and corruption Stone sees around every corner. Even then, before the drugs and the porn… » 2/05/13 6:30pm 2/05/13 6:30pm

Bill Murray: A Traitor To His Crass. Hyde Park on Hudson, Reviewed.

1. Everything about Hyde Park on Hudson feels like it's taking place in a wax museum. Actually, that's not giving it enough credit: It's more like the Hall of Presidents robotic displays at Walt Disney World. » 12/05/12 5:55pm 12/05/12 5:55pm

Bill Murray Is Better Than The Oscars

About 10 months ago, Gawker's Rich Juzwiak put together on his personal site what has to be the most useful, repeatedly entertaining animated GIF I've ever seen.

Bill Murray Entertains Minor League Baseball Fans During Rain Delay,…

Apparently, part of Bill Murray's duties as part owner of the Charleston RiverDogs, a Class-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, is to serve as Director of Fun. The Director can be seen here rounding the tarp-covered bases and taking a nice sloppy tumble dive into tarp-covered home. » 6/10/12 9:54pm 6/10/12 9:54pm

In the days before a major holiday, movie news dries up completely.

Twee's Company! Wes Anderson's Love Story, Moonrise Kingdom, Reviewed.

1. Wes Anderson is considered by many to be a cold, dispassionate filmmaker more interested in creating miniature worlds to run around and play in than creating well-rounded, relatable human beings to inhabit them. You constantly hear the word "dollhouse" referenced when people discuss Anderson, a twee boy… » 5/23/12 5:58pm 5/23/12 5:58pm

Bill Murray Is Wearing A Ghillie Suit And Punting Footballs At The…

I'd urge anyone watching this to try not to make sense of it. Bill Murray (paired with D.A. Points) is competing today at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in a ghillie suit, what appear to be gardening gloves, and at one point he punted a football into the crowd. It's all so ludicrously surreal you may wish to tune in the… » 2/11/12 1:34pm 2/11/12 1:34pm
