Bill Murray and Kate Hudson Lead All-Star Cast in First Trailer for Rock the Kasbah
Bill Murray is back and playing a role we’ve come to love him in: a washed-up, comically apathetic older gentleman in crisis – but this time he’s in Afghanistan!
In Rock the Kasbah, everyone’s favorite dramedy actor plays a has-been rock manager named Richie Lanz, who takes his last remaining client (Zoe Deschanel) on a reluctant USO tour of Afghanistan. When Deschanel’s character robs and abandons him, Lanz is left stranded in Kabul to fend for himself.
Through his travels, he stumbles across a young Afghani girl with a golden voice, and manages her through a Middle Eastern version of American Idol.
