"I‘m just an obnoxious guy who can make it appear charming, that’s what they pay me to do," said Bill Murray in an interview with T.J. English for Irish America in 1988. In the newest episode of PBS Digital Studios’ “Blank on Blank,” Murray cracks wise on giving back to his mom when he made it big, hijinks on the set of Ghostbusters, the spiritual change that saved him from destruction, and how fame sort of helps with talking to women.
Gilda Radner was in the news this week -- because she wasn't considered "news" enough for some of the affiliates of Gilda's Club. That story had a less sad ending than originally thought, with only a small number of Clubs dropping Gilda's name and not the organization as a whole. But in an attempt to keep Gilda's relevance alive, here is a very heartwarming story told by Bill Murray, her friend and former Saturday Night Live castmate, about the last time the two saw each other at a party thrown by Laraine Newman. It's not a new story, but it's a nice one worth sharing (and remembering): Read the rest
In an item that actually has nothing to do with the "development hellish" Ghostbusters 3, Deadline is reporting that director Ivan Reitman will be directing the "reboot" (that's what they're calling it here) beginning next summer. So, that is, apparently, happening. What is not happening is Bill Murray being a part of this movie. And there is your latest entry in the Ghostbusters 3-Bill Murray Involvement Saga. If you've been keeping track, this is the second Ghostbusters 3-related item in a row to report this without any contradicting statements by Bill Murray. So, if a third story comes up stating that he won't be involved, expect Bill Murray to show up at a kickball game somewhere and say "It's showtime!" (via Deadline) Read the rest

We interrupt your web surfing for a brief update on the Ghostbusters 3-Bill Murray Involvement Saga: In a recent interview with Metro, Dan Aykroyd stated that Bill Murray "won't be involved" in the movie, even though such a development is "sad."

We all know that Ghostbusters 3 is not going to happen, because Bill Murray will waffle back and forth until everyone is dead and no one will be able to do the movie with actual ghosts. But that doesn't mean we can't report on new developments about it. It's like hearing your really fun cousin, Dan Aykroyd, talking about the awesome band he's in. It mysteriously never, ever seems to produce any kind of music, but he's having a great time talking about it.
And this time, he's talking about the "awesome new writer" they got to write songs for them: Etan Cohen, who wrote Tropic Thunder, Idiocracy, and Men In Black 3, has been hired to write a script for Ghostbusters 3.
