Is Bill Murray an asshole?

Probably.

If he wasnt he wouldnt be so ridiculously watchable in every movie Ive ever seen him in.

Bill Murray kicks ass.

I tiled a pub toilet with him in Carlow, and he kept stealing the luncheon sausage out of my sandwich. That being said, he's good at grouting.

Indeed. It is okay to be an asshole once you are an hilarious, kick-ass asshole.

A friend of a friend() was getting the tube in london a few months back, was going down the escalator as you do and she spots who she thinks looks like the man himself coming up the escalator parallel to hers.

Herself says it to her mate and they're like nahhh... it cant be, it's just some aul geezer etc etc.. but as he got closer and closer they noticed it actually was him and he'd took notice of the girls staring him out it (nobody else had batted an eye lid at him) so as he passed the girls on the escalator he leaned over giving a 'come here finger' and whispers "Nobody will ever believe you!", laughs to himself and on he went!

So no

I've worked with him (well indirectly). I work in the games industry and was working on the Ghostbusters game where we were using the voices of the original actors for it, which of course BM was one. We had all of the other actors in the bag and just needed his to finish up the recording session, and it took nearly 3 months to get him, he had to record only 300 lines (which would have taken 3-4 hours to do).

Out of desperation, after 2 months of no shows at the studio, the company even arranged to pay for himself and his brother to fly to Hawaii for a weekends golf trip with no expense spared and to get him into the studio to do his lines between rounds, he agreed to this, then on the morning of the flight he never turned up (whole thing cost over $20K).

So you decided for yourself what you think of him, granted at the time he was going through a divorce... but still.

He's bound to be an asshole.. check out this clip of him bowling with Woody Harrellson.

He acts like an utter dick... and on camera.. with people applauding.. and he wears a hair-piece!

Apparently his real name is Ernie McCracken too.



PS - if the guy keeps putting in performances even half as good as "Big Ern", he could start drowning puppies professionally.. and I couldn't care less!

Agreed.

I love Bill Murray ever since Ghostbusters...his cameo in Zombieland was just awesome.

He seemed like such an asshole at the start of that Groundhog day documentary... always so impatient and condescending with everyone.

By the end though he seemed ok, like he had been redeemed or something.
