Bill Murray is considered one of the greatest comic actors alive. He’s starred many modern classics including Caddyshack, Stripes, Rushmore, and Lost in Translation. And yet Bill Murray doesn’t have his own “people”; no agents, no publicists, and he doesn’t belong to any studio either.
Whether you’re his dentist, his biggest fan, a movie director, or all three; you just call his 800 number, leave a message, and he may or may not get back to you. When asked how he decides which calls are worth it, Bill said; “I just sort of decide. I might listen and say, ‘Okay, why don't you put it on a piece of paper? Put it on a piece of paper, and if it's interesting, I'll call you back, and if it's not, I won't.’ It's exhausting otherwise.”
But before you pick up the phone and/or the notepad, you should know that Bill is only interested in business. He isn’t look to, in his own words, “hang out and bullsh*t.”
