Billy Murray And Friends Have A Guys Night Out

Bill Murray, Matt Damon, John Goodman, and George Clooney had the silveriest foxiest night about town. Just a group of four chill bros. At first glance, really just looks like a group of dads. But look again! It’s a quirky film director’s dream team!

The legit foursome are shooting a film in Berlin titled The Monuments Men. Here’s a short description of the film from IMDB: “In a race against time, a crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art stolen by Nazis before Hitler destroys them.” Yes, what better roles for John Goodman, Bill Murray, George Clooney, and Matt Damon than badass art historians and museum curators?

Clooney I hope that mustache is essential to the plot.

Mad props to The Daily Mail for the photos and for also describing to the last detail what each man is wearing.

Check out the rest of the photos. Also some random dude is there at one point. No idea who it is.

Would You, Still: Bill Murray

Because I love ‘Ghostbusters’, and ‘Scrooged’ is my all-time favorite Christmas movie alongside ‘Love Actually’, we’re going to talk about Bill Murray for a minute. Because while Bill Murray was never what I would consider “hot” (like, ever), there’s definitely something pretty distinctive about his look these days, and I’m sure it’s got something to do with his getting up in age (Bill Murray is sixty-two years old, if you can believe it—my Dad is sixty-two years old). I’d have never, for one second, considered doing Bill Murray when Bill Murray was thirty-two … cue photo:

But Bill Murray at sixty-two? Well. If that didn’t put me at boning a man who was thirty-three years old when I was born, I’d consider it, but even I have my unsubstantiated sexual hangups about age, believe it or not.

Bottom line? Bill Murray’s looking pretty good, and I think the beard does wonders for his face.

Here’s an excerpt from the GQ interview from whence the photos came. Bill Murray, to GQ, on comedy in general:

“It’s not so much what you do, but the way in which you do it. I can slap you on the back and it can be a wonderful thing, if it’s done with joy. But if I slap you on the back just as you’re coming out of the elevator, and I’ve had too much to drink, it’s a completely different thing.”

And Bill Murray on today’s comedies:

“I think there’s something that I can bring to a comedy today, but I don’t know where to bring it. I’ve actually thought about having a manager again. Just to clear my head and have a plan. ….Eh, it’s not that attractive to have a plan. I know that if I ever feel that I need to make a funny movie, I’ll figure out how to write one. I’ll get it done. If I ever get some ambition, I’m gonna get some sh*t done.”

So hey. Bill Murray: would you, still?

Chevy Chase Names His Top Four SNL Cast Members: Who Are Yours?

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

When some people from TMZ asked Chevy Chase to name the funniest four people from all of Saturday Night Live, it took him some time, but he answered with Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, and Bill Murray. And I’m sorry, but no.

I never was a huge fan of the early episodes of SNL. Maybe I was too young when I watched them to get it, maybe I grew up with a different cast and that taints my view, but I’ve never understood it when people speak of the old days of this show like not a single good, funny thing was shown post-1980, and I just think that’s so sad. And I’m not saying that SNL doesn’t suck now, because it kind of does sometimes, but there have definitely been some funny moments in recent years, and the show has definitely featured some insanely funny people throughout its history.

If I had to name my top four favorite cast members, it would probably be Tina Fey, Chris Farley, Will Ferrell, and Molly Shannon, with very honorable mentions to Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, David Spade, and Phil Hartman. What would yours be?
