Bill Murray: “If only one of us had the guts … I have the guts.


Murray was born and raised in Wilmette, Illinois. He attended St. Joseph grade school and Loyola Academy. Among his best starring roles are his roles in Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Scrooged, Ghostbusters, and Groundhog Day.

Bill Murray stars in an upcoming movie, Moonrise Kingdom, by film director We Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums), set for release on May 16, 2012. The film also stars Bruce Willis, Frances Louise McDormand, Edward Norton, and Harvey Keitel. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the missing girl’s parents. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff, and Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.
