Bill Murray has proven that he is only human, honey.
On Saturday, the Moonrise Kingdom actor was set to receive a lifetime achievement award at the Rome Film Festival. However, Murray somehow managed to sleep through an entire press conference dedicated to him receiving the award. I mean, having to sit through an entire press conference about an award you’re receiving seems like a pretty grim affair. So we don’t blame him.
Murray did inevitably receive his award. The actor later appeared at a Close Encounters panel during the festival, where he was given his award by longtime collaborator Wes Anderson.
Wes Anderson and Bill Murray are set to collaborate again on the forthcoming film, The French Dispatch, set to hit cinemas in 2020. Murray will star alongside a stellar cast of Benicio del Toro, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Adrien Brody, Timothée Chalamet, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Mathieu Amalric, Lyna Khoudri, Stephen Park, and Owen Wilson.
The film is “a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris and centers on three storylines.”
Honestly, a Wes Anderson film with Timothée Chalamet? The man truly knows his audience.
