The upcoming  DreamWorks Animation film B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations sounds like an explicitly for-kids combo of Men in Black and Ghostbusters, as it follows two agents in “a ghostly, top-secret government agency devoted to protecting humans from evil hauntings.” Bill Murray is even voicing the villain, Addison Drake, who plots against the bureau. We don’t have a trailer or any footage yet (the film hits next summer) but an early bit of licensing gives the first early look at B.O.ORead More »

Kristen Wiig Ghostbusters 3

Bill Murray has no plans to star in Ghostbusters 3, as he’s established many times. But he’s still happy to weigh in with ideas on who should, including Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. Now Wiig has responded to his suggestion, and she seems open to the notion — if only because she “will do whatever Bill Murray tells [her] to.” Hit the jump to read her reply in full.

Bill Murray female ghostbusters

The idea of an all-female Ghostbusters 3 attracted both enthusiastic supporters and vehement detractors, but you can count Bill Murray in the former camp. “I would go to that movie,” the former Dr. Peter Venkman told press at TIFF this weekend.

In fact, not only is he into the idea, he also has some ideas about whom he’d like to cast. And yes, of course rumored director Paul Feig‘s favorite muse Melissa McCarthy is one of them. Hit the jump to find out who the others are — and why he digs the idea so much in the first place.

Bill Murray

Jon Favreau just bagged a white whale while casting his Disney remake of The Jungle Book. Or, maybe more to the point, a great big bear. Bill Murray will provide the voice of Baloo, the second lead, in Favreau’s CG live action hybrid. He joins an already rich voice cast that includes Scarlett Johnasson, Idirs Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Christopher Walken and Ben Kingsley. The film is scheduled for release October 9, 2015. Read More »

st. vincent trailer

Bill Murray makes a return of sorts to the sort of character he played decades ago, in St. Vincent. The film casts Murray as a grouchy old dude whose life is invaded by new neighbors: Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) and her young son Oliver. Murray ends up babysitting for the kid, and teaches him the rules of life. Or his character’s own version of the rules of life, anyway. He dispenses pearls of wisdom such as ” You work, you get paid, and you drink.” And then there’s his association with a Russian “lady of the night” played by Naomi Watts. Check out the St. Vincent trailer below.

Spend an Hour With Bill Murray on Charlie Rose

Bill Murray as FDR in Hyde Park On The Hudson

For all his public antics Bill Murray can be a reclusive personality, who doesn’t give many lengthy interviews. Murray started his career as a comedic goofball, grew into a major superstar, then dialed it back and became one of our best dramatic actors. Along the way, Murray decided he didn’t want to live life in the public eye and all but removed himself from the Hollywood system. No manager, no publicist, just a special 800 number only people like Wes Anderson have. He only does things he really wants to do. Things like his latest film, George Clooney’s The Monuments Men.

Despite the critical response, it’s obvious Murray likes the film because he’s done so much press for it. He was on Jimmy Kimmel, and The Late Show, and did a one hour sit down with Charlie Rose. That last interview is embedded below and well worth a look, as we so rarely get to hear Murray speak candidly.

Bill Murray in The Grand Budapest Hotel

I don’t care who you are — if Bill Murray skids his car to a stop right in front of you and demands that you “get in,” just do as the guy says. That goes double if you happen to be a hotel concierge and a lobby boy on the run, like the ones played by Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori in The Grand Budapest Hotel.

That’s the basic gist of this latest clip from the movie, which looks super Wes Anderson-y in all the right ways: pretty and precise, with a sly sense of humor. Hit the jump to see it for yourself.
