Bill Murray is iconic. He's hilarious. From Saturday Night Live to Ghostbusters to Caddy Shack to Lost in Translation. The man is a genius. So who would be surprised if he's a bit quirky?
Murray rarely speaks to reporters. He doesn't even go through a publicist like most celebrities. Instead, if you want to speak to him, you call an 800 number and leave a message. If he wants to talk to you, he will call you back. He rarely does so.
In one interview that he did give to The Well Set, the reporter brought up a rumor he had heard that Murray snuck up behind strangers in NYC, covered their eyes and then said "Guess who."
Then, when they turned around, he would say "no one will ever believe you." When the reporter asked Murray to either confirm or deny, Murray simply said that he didn't know what to say about that.
That it sounds so crazy and unusual, and then Murray broke into a huge grin.
