About Bill Murray (1950 –)

William James Murray was born on September 21, 1950 in Wilmette, Illinois.

After what seemed an indefinable future, after attending Jesuit school, Loyola Academy, and Regis College, though he dropped out, Murray joined the National Lampoon Radio Hour with fellow members Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, and John Belushi. Eventually the trio would become part of the initial cast of America's classic "Saturday Night Live" (1975).

Bill Murray's big break however, came via the Canadian camp-comedy, 1979's "Meatballs". Spoof and satire have always been a partial favorite for Murray. His resume is loaded with comedies and spoofs, including SNL and 1975's "Shame of the Jungle". Bill's string of comedy hits was only getting started with Meatballs.

Though Murray has dabbled in a slew of genres, including the serious and the blockbuster, his most notable performances are in the guise of the witty and wise: "Caddyshack" (1980), "Stripes" (1981), "Tootsie" (1982), etc.

In 1984, Murray would opt for a more serious contrast, starring in the Maugham remake of "The Razor's Edge". The film however, was met with mixed reviews.

In 1988, Murray would star in "Scrooged", and quickly follow the performance with the memorable "Ghostbusters II (1989), for which bill also starred in the prequel.

It was in 1990, that Murray would step into the shoes of writer and director, working as a co-partner for both on the comedic film "Quick Change" (1990). Not looking back, Murray has continued to charm audiences into laughter in films like "What About Bob?" (1991), "Mad Dog and Glory" and "Groundhog Day" (1993), and 1994's unconventional "Ed Wood".

In 1997, Bill Murray was ranked #82 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. Murray was also the recipient of the Sons of the Desert Annual Comedy Performer Award on April 19th, 1997.

Murray starred in the remarkably subtle and witty film LOST IN TRANSLATION. Lost in Translation is layered with political and cultural satire and has ruffled a few feathers. When asked to comment Murray simply stated: "Many people say, 'Do you think this is offensive to the Japanese? Well, I know the Japanese are laughing more at the Americanisms than we are laughing at the Japanese-isms... they love watching the stupidity of the foreigner in Tokyo. They're not offended at all. They know that the bowing is funny and that their language is impenetrable to the rest of the world." With a comment like that its proof that Murray is both acutely aware and highly selective of his films. Nevertheless, it seems Bill Murray always backs his decision with a desire to make people laugh.
