Bill Murray Stopped By Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Full Shakespearean Garb and Black Swan Makeup – Because, Well, He's Bill Murray
"I don't know what you're doing, but you look really great," Jimmy Kimmel told Bill Murray on the show
In case you had any doubts, Bill Murray can do whatever he wants without fear of a backlash. People just love him more for it.
Why, you ask? Because he’s Bill Murray (there really is no need to clarify).
The actor stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night, which just so happened to follow the Chicago Cubs’ loss to the New York Mets in the National League Championship Series on Sunday. It was a melancholy time for the actor, who had been rooting for the Cubs since the beginning – and might also help explain Murray’s choice of clothes for the night: Shakespearean-inspired garb and makeup straight out of Black Swan.
“I don’t know what you’re doing, but you look really great,” Kimmel said to Murray, joking that the actor “was able to climb out of a Cubs-induced depression” for the interview.
But it wasn’t all sadness and baseball talk, however; Murray was there to promote his upcoming film Rock the Kasbah, in which he plays a music manager who discovers a teenage girl with an extraordinary voice while on tour in Afghanistan.
When asked who inspired the on-screen role, Murray jokingly said it was “based on a lifestyle of sleaze,” before offering his two sources of real-life inspiration.
“I saw the great Bill Graham and I saw Ron Delsener at the peak of their insanity and they were fun to watch,” Murray tells Kimmel.
We might just have to say the same about the actor, who with an esteemed career spanning three decades, still has us laughing out loud.
