A day late, we know, but it’s still time to get Murray this holiday season, with a special Christmas greeting straight from Bill Murray to you! Murray is starring in the new film “Hyde Park On Hudson,” as Franklin D. Roosevelt, so of course he did the most presidential thing ever and posed for a greeting postcard in nothing but a handkerchief. God, I love this man.
Why do I find it so charming that, after 30+ years in Hollywood, Bill Murray still shows up to his own movie premieres in an ill-fitting, possibly dirty suit, looking like he just wandered in after crashing a kickball game? (By the way, the previous sentence is all that remains of a long and incredibly inappropriate Open Letter To Bill Murray that I just wasted approximately half an hour on. I decided it was unsuitable for the public eye. Bottom line: I have a big, creepy crush on Bill Murray. He’s older than my dad. Who should I see about this?)
Bill Murray has had one hell of a strange career. From “Caddyshack” to his current role as de facto Wes Anderson man muse, Murray’s kept us laughing with his quick wit and charm. It’s only fitting that Murray should be idolized in a way befitting his wacky personality: With the Thrill Murray Coloring Book. The book features illustrations from Nicholas Stevenson, Anneka Lange, Murray Somerville, Donald Ely, Hattie Stewart, Bridget Meyne, Tobias Hall and a slew of others. Pre-order it now!

Bill Murray upstaged the rest of Cannes doing what he does best: being a lovable old coot who doesn’t give a fuck. I’m sure Anna Wintour is riding her senior editors as we speak figuring out how to get plaid-on-plaid-on-plaid in the next issue of Vogue. Bill walked the red carpet for Wes Anderson’s new movie “Moonrise Kingdom” and appears to have brought along his own mini-camera to capture the occasion. As you do. Keep reading »
There’s so much more we all need to know about Bill Murray … like his sister is a nun and he’s nicknamed “The Murricane” for his mood swings.

I’ve had a crush on Bill Murray since I saw Groundhog Day and his studliness was further proved by the depressing lothario he played in Lost In Translation. So it’s with a sad heart that I report that Murray may not be the sensitive moper the world thought him to be. According to divorce papers filed by Murray’s soon-to-be-ex-wife, Jennifer Murray, the actor’s “adultery, addiction to marijuana and alcohol, abusive behavior, physical abuse, sexual addictions and frequent abandonment” led to their split. Apparently he also told her “she was lucky he didn’t kill her.” [The Smoking Gun] Keep reading »
