Bill Murray as all the Wes Anderson characters

  1. I loved Bill Murray as Max Fischer from Rushmore. Hell, I love that movie in it’s entirety. Totally captures the Inner Loop limo liberal culture of Houston. The movie was originally planned to be set in the Northeast for broader appeal because audiences might not accept that any part of Texas was really like that.

    Thankfully, Anderson decided to go ahead and shoot in Houston, mostly because his old private high school was very happy to let him film there.

    And Max was originally supposed to be a tall blond guy, as they wanted someone like co-screenwriter Owen Wilson for the role, but when Schwartzmann did so well at the audition, they rewrote the character as a short Jewish guy. That was perfect as it made Max more of an outsider.
