Another unconventional interview with Bill MurrayNov 28 2012

Dave Itzkoff went to interview Bill Murray for the NY Times on the occasion of the release of his new film, Hyde Park on Hudson, in which Murray plays Franklin D. Roosevelt. Itzkoff was expecting just a normal interview but, due to a scheduling problem, ended up accompanying Murray on stage at an evening appearance and continued the interview in front of members of the Screen Actors Guild.

Mr. Murray, having changed his shirt but still in the blue shorts, leaves the hotel and boards a chauffeured S.U.V., where the conversation continues.

Q. It sounds as if you also wanted to convey Roosevelt's voice as much as his physical presence.

A. We had a discussion about it, and we agreed that you don't want to do an impression. You want to get it in you, and then you want to play -- [The car is suddenly cut off by another vehicle.] That person was insane. [To his driver] Well-avoided, Mustafa. But you can bump her now. She's got it coming.

Movie with Bill Murray as FDR?!Jun 01 2012

Saw this trailer in front of Moonrise Kingdom last night...Bill Murray plays Franklin Roosevelt in an upcoming movie called Hyde Park on Hudson.

I'm interested in seeing it, but Hyde Park on Hudson is a terrible name.
