'St. Vincent' Director Tells His Bill Murray Story

September 8, 2014


Getting Bill Murray to star in your debut film is a pretty huge "get" to be sure. Even Wes Anderson and Sofia Coppola had to wait until their sophomore efforts to get the notoriously choosy, hard-to-reach actor deadpanning for them. So how did Ted Melfi, someone who's never made a feature before, get Murray to star in his St. Vincent? As with most instances involving a surprising meeting with Bill Murray, there is a story that ends with the fear no one will believe it, and Melfi has told his tale to the LA Times. Read and find out how you, too, could somehow get Bill Murray to be in your first movie. Or at least get him to reject being in your first movie. For the story.
