Oh sure man, sure. Just looking at his face when it's not doing anything can make me crack up loud loling!!!! Dunno how he does it. He's just got that dopey look on his face, but deep down inside I'm sure he knows exactly what he's doing to make it so damn funny.

Having said that, and this is a bit of both of Still to Loud facial acting... the beginning of Scrooged where he's just sitting at that meeting, and he's got that distant meanish look on his face and everyone in the room is frozen scared by him for ages - then for some reason he pulls open his drawer, looks at a mirror in it, then pulls the most stupid teethy childish smile!!! I peed myself laughing!!! I mean, WHY did he do that for?!?!!?!?


Just brilliant!

I'm not sure I could pick one, as he's got so many different classics out there to choose from. Zissou is definitely up there, though.

'Anne-Marie, do all the interns get Glocks?'

Heh.

Ghostbusters is one of may favorite comedies and my favorite Murray performance.

But Groundhog Day should be mentioned, and I watch Scrooged every Christmas.

And did anyone see that movie "The Man Who Knew Too Little" ? I never see it mentioned when people talk about Murray, but he totally carried that movie. With a different actor, I think it would have fallen flat.

Was thinking of mentioning The Man Who Knew Too Little. I think it's brilliant!!! Hilarious. I love the innocence of him and the film. But so many great moments and acting. Like when he's being chased by the cops and he's running over the traffic cones, when he gets pulled over and the cops come up to his window and he says to Joanne Whalley, 'ooh I like mine!'

He's just a complete idiot - but you know, his brother thinks the world of him, he wins the day, Whaley is all over him - AND he carries on doing it at the end of the film.

What I like is how Whalley just wets her knickers in laughter at the guy - but you're doing it along with her, as you can see why she finds him so funny yourself. It's one of his more unknown but actually funny roles!!

I think Stripes, Meatballs, Caddyshack, and Ghostbusters are his best comedies, while Lost in Translation, Steve Zissou, Tenenbaums, and Rushmore are his best dramas. There's always a bit of comedy in there somewhere, though.

Huh! With all the money he earns, you'd think he could hire a decent props department by now then eh? But then again, with his resourcefulness and improv skills he can probably do better without the props and instead make things better by use of his imagination eh? Good discussion and points raised by you though.

how this thread could go so long without an Ernie McCracken shout-out is beyond me.

Bunny Breckinridge in ED WOOD, his sleazy lawyer perf in WILD THINGS, Polonius in Almeredya's pretty good modern HAMLET...

and of course, lampooning his image and getting ragged on by the RZA and GZA in COFFEE AND CIGARETTES.

Bill-fucking-Murray, cameo master.

Hehheeeheeee!!!!!! :twisted: :twisted:

When I was with my ex in New Zealand and I would get her all peed off with me and she would try to slap me about in anger, I would always base my reaction on Bill Murray in that sketch 'YEAAAAHHH YEAAAAAAHH YEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!' The poor chick could only just stop and look at me totally without hope and just shout 'PERVEEEERRTTT!!!!!!!!' as she knew that nothing she could do could ever ever really beat me and that she was totally defeated by my sicko power.


Once more, Bill Murray wins the day for Kirk and chicks. I highly advise the rest of you follow suit.

Landau and Jeffrey Jones as Criswell also (although the latter is not such a cool name to drop lately). Vincent D'Onofrio pulls one of my all time favourite cameos as Orson Welles in Ed Wood too.

Pirates of the Caribbean 4 should have Johnny Depp as Ed Wood as Jack Sparrow... they can go all meta on us, it could be hilarious:

Ed Sparrow: Ok, you're a pirate. The water's swishing around you, splashing in your face. You don't know what's going on. You see a light, and you look at it. Great, that's a cut!! Moving on!!

I'm not ashamed to say that Peter Venkman was one of my earliest crushes. I idolized Sigourney Weaver too and it was probably all because she got Venkman, not because she played Dian Fossey!

Anyway, Murray comes to Coors Field to watch the Rockies every once and awhile. Apparently he always gets completely plastered and the cops hate dealing with him. They say he's not very nice, which breaks my heart. I'd like to think saying "I had a crush on you in Ghostbusters" would make all the difference, but it probably wouldn't.

Of course, you can't trust Denver cops as I find them to be the biggest assholes on the planet. So maybe Bill Murray is a super nice guy and they annoy the crap out of him.

Hmm, I'm not sure Bill Murray ever had a reputation as being a nice guy... I'd heard about his jerkness on several occasions, but we also have to bear in mind that these things always end up being exaggerated, even though there might be truth to them.

The image I like to keep of Bill Murray is his being on the verge of tears when he didn't receive the Oscar for Lost in Translation. People started applauding him, it was a really sweet moment for the usually dull wankfest that is the Oscars.

Another thing about Bill Murray is he's kind of old school in the way he speaks, and people pick apart at the things he says waaaay too much... I remember reading some article about the 2004 (?) Oscars, and the writer said something along the lines of "Bill Murray sets back women's progress by referring to Sofia Coppola as a girl." See, I don't think he meant anything bad by it, it's just his sort of frank (and I guess not PC) way of speaking.

And I just saw another article where the writer said something like "people were shocked by Bill Murray's refusing to applaud for Sean Penn's win," but I remember that moment and it looked to me like Murray was doing his best to hold back tears. He knew the camera was on him, one billion people watching, how would it have looked if he was clapping and sobbing like a girl, eh? Give the guy a break!!

Later on Bill made it clearer that he has a general disdain for awards shows, and that he somehow regrets even attending those Oscars.

man, i must be reading stuff Murray's publicist has published, 'cuz I've always heard he's really cool on the set...

to the teamsters and catering and craftspeople, at any rate.

you know, the blue-collar type workers on a set.

which I always thought spoke a lot more about his person than clashing with some h@ck director or writer.

man's from Chicago, calling Sofia a "girl" comes with the territory...

right Lecko?

One of my favorite Bill stories -

Right after Lost in Translation came out, some fan saw him standing near a boat dock in Europe where a giant steamboat was harbored nearby. The fan yelled to him and asked what he said to Scarlett Johanssen at the end of Lost in Translation, and right as Bill began to yell back an answer, a huge blast of steam and noise came from the smokestack of the steamboat, completely drowning out Bill's answer. Bill kept talking despite all the noise, though, and he finished right as the steamboat did. Bill just smiled, waved, and yelled to the fan, 'So now you know!' and walked off. The man's a classic.

So he's got that going for him.

I always take the "total jerk" stories with a grain of salt...I mean, how often are actors just chowing down on some lunch and someone comes up and demands they "perform." There's few of us who would have the constant patience to put up with it.

And like I said, when it comes from a Denver cop you automatically have to assume they were dickish first. They've certainly never been nice to me and I'm in the family, as it were!

Stop stealing my responses. You know, some actors it matter if they are an '*sshole' in real life amd some well, something about how cool and brilliant they are, well, it doesn't really matter what they're like, you still dig 'em.

Murray's the latter. If he told me to bugger off on a film set if I was foaming at the mouth as I humped his leg and maybe foaming in another way, well I really wouldn't care and I'd still respect him for that, wether it was in the morning after or after a few seconds.

I prefer an actor like Murray who can be angry/cool dependant on the day than a Tom Cruise who puts on a fake smile all the time. You just get the sense with Murray that he'd be genuine no matter what, even if you took offense to it.

Apocryphal? Spurious? Who talks like that?

Bill was in the audience of Iron Chef America last night. He gave a few comments about Iron Chef Cat Cora, ('She's got the imagination of a pixie, but the will of an Emperor's daughter') and at the end of the show, Alton Brown gave a little shout to him by calling the entire episode 'a Cinderella story'.

The image I like to keep of Bill Murray is his being on the verge of tears when he didn't receive the Oscar for Lost in Translation. People started applauding him, it was a really sweet moment for the usually dull wankfest that is the Oscars.


Same here. Not only did he look crestfallen at not winning, but absolutely disgusted! As if it should've been his by right! The best, most real life moment at the Oscars since Vanessa Redgrave's 'zionist hoodlums' acceptance speech which was greeted with boos. Give me all this instead of Paltrow's/Hank's/Beery's orgasmic tears of overwhelming luvvie gratitude and thanking Ma and Pa and God and trying a little too hard to be humble and all 'ah-shucks' (Jimmy Stewart style).

One of Murray's best lines/moments....

In Groundhog Day when he and his new mates get pulled over by the police. The policeman comes up to Murray's door to speak to him.

Everyone is scared, but Bill Murray says 'don't worry, I'll handle this, I'll do the talking' then says to the Policeman when he arrives at his window.... 'I'll have 3 French Fries, 2 double cheese burgers, and 4 Cherry Cokes.' Something like that anyway. In a quiet scene you could hear me suddenly blast out my loud laughter!!!!!

I swear I wish I could be as sharp and clever as some of his stuff. No wonder he was a role model in my near adulthood. Still there actually.
