    Bill Murray has been accused of 'inappropriate behavior' and seen his latest movie shut down, reports say. The 71-year-old actor had the complaint filed against him last week before Aziz Ansari and Seth Rogan's Being Mortal was temporarily shelved, it was claimed. The details of the allegations were not immediately clear but Searchlight Pictures said an investigation has been launched. Murray has previously been accused of misbehaving on set, having allegedly been part of a ferocious bust up with his Charlie's Angels co-star Lucy Liu. He is said to have berated the actress after she confronted him over tweaking the...

    Early in his career, the actor Bill Murray was depressed, mulling suicide, and walking around Chicago when he wandered into the Art Institute. There, he came across a painting that saved his life: The Song of the Lark (1884) by the French painter Jules Breton, as he explained at a 2014 press conference that has suddenly begun circulating online. (The event was for The Monuments Men, in which he stars.) The painting shows a girl lost in thought, taking a break from working in a dimly lit field with a sickle. Murray: “I thought, ‘Well, there’s a girl who doesn’t...

    Sometimes, lawyers need a light touch. Like when a famously laid-back actor uses an unlicensed song to hawk an "ugly" golf shirt. Often, the legal threats come hot and heavy. But that's not what happens when Bill Murray uses without license the Doobie Brothers' "Listen to the Music" for an advertisement for his golf shirts, and the band must react. Here, the group's attorney Peter Paterno attempts to lightly scold Murray. He writes, "It seems like the only person who uses our clients' music without permission more than you do is Donald Trump … We'd almost be OK with it...

  • Super Bowl Ads: Detritus From a Cultural Wasteland

    If you watched the Super Bowl for the commercials you wasted 4 hours of your life. Unless you’re a Millennial as that’s who they were made for and - I’d speculate – by. Since advertising, like bond trading, is notorious for being a young man’s (generic usage, no complaints please) game I think it’s safe to assume that most of yesterday’s ads were conceptualized and written by members of the millennial demographic. And if they are our future, gird your loins for a tedious ride. The $5.6 million for a 30 second spots were mediocre at best and dreadful at...

    Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full-trance mediums, the Loch Ness Monster and the theory of Atlantis? If so, good news — there’s a new Ghostbusters movie in the works. Entertainment Weekly has learned exclusively that Jason Reitman will direct and co-write an upcoming film set in the world that was saved decades previously by the proton pack-wearing working stiffs in the original 1984 movie, which was directed by his father, Ivan Reitman. “I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set....

    Director Harold Ramis, in the DVD commentary, opined that it takes Murray's character about ten years of repeating Groundhog Day and then later, in response to several sites online linking to an article that came to an answer of just 8 years, 8 months, and 16 days, he offered the following: "I think the 10-year estimate is too short. It takes at least 10 years to get good at anything, and allotting for the down time and misguided years he spent, it had to be more like 30 or 40 years…" Here's an amazingly detailed subsequent analysis that concluded it...

    Actor and comedian Bill Murray penned an op-ed Thursday comparing the Parkland shooting survivors to the students “who helped end the Vietnam War.” Writing for NBC News THINK, Mr. Murray drew parallels between the Parkland students and the Vietnam War student protesters who spurred the antiwar movement of the 1960s. “I was thinking, looking at the kids in Parkland, Florida who have started these anti-gun protests, that it really was the students that began the end of the Vietnam War,” Mr. Murray wrote. “It was the students who made all the news, and that noise started, and then the movement...

    Internet researcher Katica has again discovered the FBI quietly, and without explanation, just released another batch of documents from the “ongoing” FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use and classified information. This is release #7, and follows the prior release #6 which oddly took place on Superbowl weekend. This batch includes FBI notes from multiple interviews including Sidney Blumenthal, and contains discussions of guidance and opinion provided to Blumenthal (with the intent to pass along to Clinton) by a retired CIA operative identified in the notes as “TD”. Who is “TD”? ….Tyler Drumheller (April 12, 1952 – August 2, 2015)...

After being told the game was sold out, she spotted Murray walking by and decided to follow him. "He turns around and says, 'Here, here's a ticket,'" Michel told "And he kind of shuttled me into the door. I thought it was just a ticket to get in. But it was a ticket to sit right here." You can see her here next to Bill Murray. She got to sit in a $15,000...

That’s when authorities were able to apprehend him.” Bill Murray, who is in town visiting friends, told reporters about the incident. “I saw this man on the sidewalk running towards me with a bag in his hand.

    Bill Murray is a man of great taste, that's well known by now. He's appeared in a film with Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and GZA, shared a stage with Eric Clapton and even hung out with Leeds punks Eagulls (who got a tattoo especially to mark the occasion). The celebrated actor also likes to mix it with the general public - and these moments, as well as urban legends regarding his prank antics, are becoming even more well known in this increasingly digitalised age. Now, just like Danny DeVito before him at last year's Coachella, Murray has has been checking out...

    Republican victories in the US midterm elections in early November and the Saudi Arabia-imposed decision by Opec on Nov. 27 to maintain production at 30 million barrels of oil a day may seem too disconnected and tangential to merit deep consideration of any linkage. But the two political events actually illustrate the slowly diverging paths between the US and Saudi Arabia that could become too entrenched to redirect, and may ultimately destroy or at least permanently alter one of the most important remaining strategic constants in the world since 1945 — America's security guarantee of Saudi Arabia and its energy...
