Done in one.

I loved that interview, despite Charlie Rose. His style was more "gushing" than usual, for some reason.

Bill's an interesting cat, and was genuinely choked up when talking about Belushi.

I caught a bit of that the other night... and they say that pot wasn't as potent back in the day.

Bill Murray told Charlie Rose that it's the motto he lives by drugs that will lead him to do things like crash a stranger's karaoke party.

I read the headline as "do things like crash a car into a stranger's karaoke party" - which seems like not a very nice thing to do.

Not cool, Bill, not cool.

I don't begrudge Bill Murray enjoying the Bill Murrayness of being Bill Murray, but if I was as available for life to happen to me as he is I'd have been beaten up or arrest years ago.

Seriously, look at the pics of him at that karaoke party and tell me he'd have the same warm invite were he not famous and showed up like that. Takes more than a motto.

He's been a hero of mine ever since he wrangled out 'Razor's Edge' from Hollywood, then took four years off to live in Paris.

If Murray came to my house to party he would have to do it in his Carl Spackler character because there would be plenty of "cannon balls coming through!"

Are you trying to say that people with fame and money are going to get away with things that ordinary people don't? I've never heard anything so ludicrous in my life.

Flipped through the channels yesterday and caught that interview. Great stuff.

This. Also, Razor's Edge is a seriously underrated film.

Sooooo, which one of you is Bill Murray?

Why else would he be doing interviews? When you make what you think is a clever comment, in your case, you're probably wrong.

It's because he turned into a most pretentious hipster. And to a lesser extent he's not as funny as he was.

So did the french fry thing happen or not? Sounds like it just might have, if the Karaoke thing is his type of thing...

How weird for an actor to go out on the road when they have a movie coming out. Bill Murray just set a new standard for the world. THE WORLD!!!

I believe he was busted back in the day for smugglin' weed.

I bet it's happened a few dozen times. It may or may not have happened before he told the story about it.

I thought they caught this (or something like it) on camera at one of the Pebble Beach pro-ams?

It's because he turned into a most pretentious hipster. And to a lesser extent he's not as funny as he was.



Charlie Chaplin was a comic master from 1914 to 1940. 26 years.
WC Fields 1925-1945 20 years.
Buster Keaton  1915-1930 15 years
Sid Caesar  had maybe 5 years 10 years, tops.
Jonathan Winters burned for around 10 years
George Burns had an extraordinary long career by switching from being a straight man to the comic after 20 years. And, of course, he disappeared for 20 more.

These people didn't quit being funny. The world interiorized their world view.

Murray has had a productive career for almost 40 years now and is still as funny as he ever was, but the audience changed on him. We grew up on his gags. So, don't speak ill of Bill Murray.

I hate that phrase, more than any other. Just how much is his share? How would one know when your fair share has been reached? I can't stand when people say "I've had more than my fair share of women" or "fun" or "success" or whatever. Anyone who would say that phrase has to be to the gym in 26 minutes.

The point was, (as yakman correctly mentioned correctly concerning Bill Murray),  that when anyone's famous a long time, even if the quality of their work doesn't decline, their own audience turns on them
I probably misused "fair share".  At this point talking about it is way off track from the thread.  I like Bill Murray a lot.  I even sat through that Broken Flowers movie waiting for something to happen then watched it again to make sure I didn't miss anything, save for perhaps a young girl that put him in a tough spot and then the very final scene.

I taught two of Bill's kids and I once had to show him how to use our online grade/class info website. The man had about zero computer skill, but was good natured about learning the system. He also seemed to be a pretty good dad, often dropping off his kids at school, going to all the sporting events his schedule would allow, and even hanging out many mornings in the parking lot with us teachers & administrators. One of my favorite Bill geek out moments (kept it to myself, thankfully) was when he handed me his phone one morning and asked me to put my number into it because he couldn't figure out how to add contacts to his new phone. I just kept thinking to myself "I'm in Bill Murray's contact list!!", all the while keeping a straight face. He's never actually called me (not surprised) but still it's a good story to tell over drinks.
