Bill Murray And Melissa McCarthy Film A Movie Together In NYC

Tell me, HOW is it that I did not know until very recently (like, in the past 20 minutes) that Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy, two of my favorite people in the entire world (okay, fine, in all of Hollywood, I’ve got a family and stuff), were starring in a movie together? And not only that, but a movie that is filming in New York City, where I also live, which means that Melissa and Bill and I are ALL BREATHING THE SAME HUNDRED-DEGREE, POOR QUALITY AIR RIGHT NOW. Here’s a photo from the set of “St. Vincent de van Nuys,” with a grizzled, bloody-faced Bill (in socks and sandals) leaning into the window of a car being operated by Melissa (I swear that’s her in there, right behind the wheel). Forget the (also Manhattan-based) set of “Amazing Spider-Man 2,” or the late “Gossip Girl” (been there, done that, glimpsed Blair Waldorf from afar) — this is one filming session I’d like to crash. Will crash, maybe. [Photo: FameFlynet]

Reasons My Son Is Crying was started by Greg Pembroke, a father of two who took to Tumblr to document his one-year-old son’s meltdowns in photos alongside simple, deadpan captions explaining, well, why his child happened to be crying. The blog went viral and has now expanded to allow other parents to submit their own photos (and, yes, of their daughters too). They’re all pretty fantastic (kids always be crying, amIright?), but it goes without saying that I am especially compelled by this photo. Laura R.’s son is crying, and why? Because he met Bill Murray, of course. The magic of this is not lost on Bill. Is any magic ever lost on Bill? [Huffington Post]

Gilda Radner and Bill Murray

I keep thinking about a thing I read on Ye Olde Internet earlier this week. It was a passage from the “Saturday Night Live” oral history, Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live. Gilda Radner was a regular “SNL” cast member from 1975 to 1980, and at one time dated Bill Murray, though their relationship was stormy and contentious. After five years, she left the show to pursue film work, and eventually married fellow comedian Gene Wilder in 1984 (after divorcing from first husband, “SNL” bandleader G.E. Smith).

In 1986, Radner was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She suffered through chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and went into remission. But two years after first being diagnosed, the cancer came back. She passed away in May 1989 at the age of 42. In the following passage, Bill Murray recounts the last night he spent with Radner.

"Turn and look into the camera with more... intensity."

“Lost in Translation” is one of my favorite movies, because of course it is. I am either a walking stereotype (entirely possible) or I just really want to be the Charlotte to Bill Murray‘s Bob Harris (yes, 1,000 times yes; I’m super weird about Bill Murray). If you’ve seen it (and if you haven’t, do that), you’ll recall that aging American movie star Bob Harris travels to Tokyo to film a high-paying commercial spot for a whisky company called Suntory. With that said, I encourage you to watch this 17-second Japanese Jim Beam ad featuring aging American movie star Leonardo DiCaprio. Tell me what you think. “For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.”

I will say this: Leo appears exponentially more chipper than Bob Harris did in his clip, but who knows what he’s really got brewing inside? (Leonardo DiCaprio’s Internal Monologue: “Models. Models. Models. Blondes. Save elephants. Save tigers. Models. Save models.”) [Vulture]

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?)

The Thrill Of Bill (Murray)

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!

WTF Are You Wearing, Bill Murray? Oh, Who Cares, You Can Do Anything You Want

Bill Murray's plaid Cannes jacket

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 »

Damn You, Bill Murray

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 »
