He s the sort of actor who can do "Hamlet" and "Charlie s Angels" in the same year. He shuns managers and agents and once agreed to voice the part of "Garfield" because he mistakenly believed it was a Coen brothers film. Bill Murray s extraordinary career is rich with fascinating anecdotes, contradictions, and mystery, from his early success on "Saturday Night Live" and the biggest blockbusters of the 1980s ("Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Ghostbusters") to his reinvention as a hipster icon in the early 21st century (in films like "Lost in Translation" and "Moonrise Kingdom"). And now you can get your fill of Bill: part biography, part critical appreciation, part love letter, and all fun, "The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray" chronicles every single Murray performance in loving detail, relating all the milestones, yarns, and controversy in the life of this beloved but enigmatic performer.These pages are packed with color film stills and behind-the-scenes photography."
