Bill Murray does not have any manager or an agent to whom you could talk about Bill’s casting in the movie. To cast him in an upcoming film, the filmmakers have to follow the steps given below:
- Call Bill Murray’s 1-800 Number
First, you will have to call Bill Murray’s 1-800 number, and the call will go directly to his voicemail. You only get 2 minutes to describe your idea and Bills’ role in the film or project. Words like “Summer blockbuster” and “Another Garfield” will immediately end your chances of Bill’s participation.
- Send the script
If Bill Murray likes your message, he will give you the PO Box address where you can send your script. The script of the project must be between 90 and 91 pages long. Bill Murray’s lines must be highlighted with a color. In your project, there must be a scene where Bill Murray plays golf. It does not matter if the movie’s story is before golf even existed.
- Guest bartend with Bill
If your script manages to passes Bill’s test, he will talk to you in person while engaging in his one true passion – guest bartending at random bars. You will be Bill’s bar-back, helping to stock the bar with liquor, fixing any possible issues, and keeping the staff of bar from fighting. Your project will not even be talked about, and Bill does not share his tips.
If you made sure Bill Murray never ran out of lemon wedges and beer glasses, he would meet you for dinner to discuss payment. The dinner will be hosted at an Old Navy outlet store. It will take place at around 9:20 PM. Bill Murray is quite wealthy, so he is not interested in money or fees or doing the film. Offering him a unique experience is all you have to do to cast him. Some rumors say that Bill appeared in The Life Aquatic in return for getting to spend an entire week in an actual submarine. The same thing goes with the Zombieland. Now you could say that the rule of thumb is to offer him a submarine for a week.
- Signing of contract
Provided the amulet of Khonsu gets verified by both Bill and the Moon, Bill Murray will agree to sign your contract finally. After handing him the contract, he will look over it and make sure the phrase “submarine for a week” is present there. After this, he will sign with whatever name comes to his mind. Bill Murray will ask you what day you are about to start shooting and immediately leave before you can tell him. So, these were some of the steps that you need to follow to ensure he gets cast in your upcoming project.
