Bill Murray

March 25, 2014

Beloved comedian Bill Murray will be starring in the upcoming Berry Levinson comedy Rock the Kasbah, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the producers, the film is about "a burned-out music manager who goes to Afghanistan on the USO tour with his last remaining client. When he finds himself abandoned, penniless and without his passport, he discovers a young girl with an extraordinary voice, who stows away with him back to Kabul to compete on the popular television show The Afghan Star, Afghanistan's equivalent of American Idol."

Murray has, time and time again, shown his acting range, often mixing strong comedic performances with nuanced hints of the dramatic, in films like Groundhog Day, Lost in Translation, Broken Flowers, and basically any of the Wes Anderson films he's has appeared in.
