Bill Murray"That reminds me of something funny. My father died when I was 17. That’s not what was funny; he was funny. People always said to me ‘Oh, you’ll never grow up to be as funny as your dad.’ And now, he’s not around to see me be not as funny as him.”
—Saturday Night Live, 1977
Getting old can take its toll on party animals like Bill Murray, but when he came back on the scene, he did so with panache. Propelled into the spotlight again through the stylish eye of Wes Anderson, it seems Mr. Murray’s taken a few quirky cues from the director. Lateley he’s looking good in a suit and tie.
