Bill Murray never wanted to act

Feb 1 2013, 10:16am CST | by

Bill Murray ''never intended'' to be an actor.

The 62-year-old star, who is best known for his roles in films such as 'Lost In Translation' and 'Groundhog Day', admitted that he never set out to become famous but found himself becoming more talented when working in a ''relaxed'' atmosphere to help him get into character.

He explained: ''I never intended to do this for a living. I just realised I could. And I realised that, to be good it helped to be relaxed; the more fun I had, the better I was.

''Oh, I'll fight with people to make sure it's more relaxed. No! We're going to be more relaxed here!''

After his role as Dr. Peter Venkman in 1984's 'Ghostbusters', instead of immediately responding to the high level of success Bill decided to study philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris, France.

When asked if he considered leaving showbusiness behind him back then, Bill told Radio Times magazine: ''Well you can't be a philosopher on top of a mountain. You need to get out in the world and put it into action.''

After shooting his latest film 'Hyde Park on Hudson', he realised how enjoyable acting was for him and experienced an overwhelming sense of pride at the finished piece.

Recalling the end of one particular scene, Bill said: ''There was this glorious sunset, and music was playing, and the crew were loading trucks to the music.

''And I did think, you know, that was a great day's work. And we were all responsible for it.''

Nov 2 2014 5:05pm CST | Source: Empire Online

But Ouija is not far behind...Halloween is traditionally the time for scary movies to arrive at the stateside box office, but with the holiday falling on a Friday this year, studios largely steered clear to avoid being affected by trick-or-treating or drunken parties. Still, US cinemagoers were clearly ready to experience Jake Gyllenhaal being a creepy – if all too human – character in Nightcrawler.Dan Gilroy’s film about the seedy underbelly of LA crime re ...

Watch Sofia Coppola’s Adorable Gap Holiday Campaign

Oct 31 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

I know, I know: Halloween is way too early for Christmas marketing. But these charming Gap spots directed by Sofia Coppola don’t beat you over the head with their Christmas-iness. If anything, the unifying theme really seems to be “sweaters,” and that’s something we can get behind in these chilly fall days. Besides, you can think of them as a sort of appetizer for Coppola’s other upcoming holiday project, a TV special with ...

Canceled Starz Series ‘Magic City’ Becoming A Movie; Bruce Willis, Bill Murray Join Cast

Oct 31 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

When a TV series is canceled, that’s usually the end. It’s only on rare occasions (Arrested Development, The Comeback, etc.) that it gets a second chance as a series and it’s even more rare that a canceled show gets turned into a movie (Firefly being the big, obvious example). Now, the Starz show Magic City is getting that elusive chance. Series creator Mitch Glazer has written and script and will direct a big screen version of the 1960s Miami ...

Ouija Scares Victory Over John Wick: Weekend Box Office Report

Oct 27 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Despite some sub-par reviews, including our Ouija review, the horror flick based on the board game came in first place at the weekend box office with a $20 million debut. With Halloween next Friday, this should hardly be a surprise as it was the only new horror flick to open wide. The Keanu Reeves action flick John Wick also did pretty darn well, coming in second with $14.2 million, Reeves biggest debut in eight years (since The Day the Earth Stood Still ...
