We love Bill Murray. Everyone loves Bill Murray. We still claim the funny man and versatile actor even though he hasn’t lived in Chicago for years and years. He pops up at Cubs games to generous applause, and he can still get laughs from an audience by just, well, standing there. Think of the classics—“Caddyshack,” “Stripes,” “Ghostbusters,” “Groundhog Day,” “Lost in Translation”—then think of all his work with the enigmatic Jim Jarmusch. If you haven’t seen his cameo in the recent “Zombieland,” do yourself a favor and witness just how funny Bill Murray can still be.
