t's a question that's baffled Bill Murray fans for most of the past decade: Why did the actor, usually so discerning in picking his roles, agree to provide the voice for the title character in 2004's universally hated  Garfield? He couldn't have needed the moneythat badly, right? In a  GQ, Murray finally clears everything up: He did the movie because he confused  Garfield writer Joel  Cohen with Coen brother Joel  Coen, and consequently thought he'd be making the  Miller's Crossing of half-animated, Breckin Meyer-starring kids' movies about lasagna-loving house cats.

And then he did the sequel.

Do you mean "Coen" or are there some other movie-making brothers out there?

You said Cohen twice.

Article says one of the perps has "access to a large trust fund."
Maybe he kidnaps and robs just for fun.

No, six was afraid of seven because seven was a well known six offender.

"Christopher is a flight risk, in part because he has ties to California and access to a large trust fund."

But he tries to rob a dude of 13 G's

Should have called J.G. Wentworth

Came here to say that, the first two lines anyway. WTF? I wonder of the 'illegal drugs' had anything to do with the poor decision making (meth?), and in order to shoot yourself in the hand  (hahahaha!) when you pistol whip someone, that pretty much means you were holding it by the barrel with one in the chamber (safety off if so equipped). Just brilliant, but what do you expect from an x-con and, oh, look! Neck tattoos! Perfect!
I love people with neck tattoos, they are considerate enough to have informed me of their character...

I went to school with a kid that for years bragged about his big trust fund he was getting when he was 18. After he got it he blew it all on drugs and stuff he didnt need. Kept getting new cars and DUIs. My brother saw him years ago and said he looked homeless just wandering around.

No surprise there.

I went to a college with a lot of rich kids, and every time there was a story in the student paper about an on campus theft, my immediate assumption was a rich kid with a coke problem.

I'll go with one because it is the loneliest number or two because it is the saddest.

When I was in 11th grade back in the early 80's, there was a huge rash of car stereo thefts and house burglaries in the neighborhood around the school that went on for several months. The guys that hung out on the Hill (smoking area, all the longhair stoners) including myself and several friends were repeatedly called into the Dean's office and questioned by the Police about them, and they were pretty much telling us that "they knew it was us or someone we knew" and it was only a matter of time before they could prove it.

When the guys actually doing it were finally caught, it was four guys whose daddies were bigshots at various tech companies around the area. They all lived in the same neighborhood in Los Altos Hills and there wasn't a single one of them that didn't already have everything a high school pretty boy superjock could want.

They weren't even doing it just for coke money, they were into it for the thrill, and they did mostly get away with it. I don't think any of them did jail time.

When I was 19 a friend's younger brother decided to borrow dad's shotgun and rob a liquor store.  Without wearing a mask.  Bonus:  it was the one right down the street that he'd been walking to for years.

He was 17, got sent to Juvie, turned into a total parasite on society.
