Hollywood came to Havana on Thursday as Cuban writers and artists gave an award to Benicio del Toro, star of the 2008 movie "Che," in a ceremony attended
by fellow actors Bill Murray, Robert Duvall and James Caan.
Murray stole the show when he improvised a version of the song "As Time Goes By," then jokingly passed around a hat, asking for money.
Funny stuff. But haven't we seen this routine before. Was it Caddyshack? Stripes? Ghostbusters? No, much more recently than that.
June 25, 2009. Bill Murray, rich and famous Hollywood entertainer, shamelessly begging for a hand out in the heart of ….. St. Paul, MN.
Leave it to actor-comedian Bill Murray and a descendant of baseball prankster
Bill Veeck to pitch a backward-facing baseball stadium in downtown St. Paul.
Murray, who co-owns the minor league St. Paul Saints with Mike Veeck,
strolled into City Hall on Wednesday to lobby for a new stadium -- and $25
million in public funding -- in Lowertown.
A multi-millionaire asking for $25 million of taxpayer's money for a sports stadium while politicians in St. Paul is claiming they are being forced to slash spending on police, fire, prosecutions, and safety inspections. Now that's comedy! Easily Murray's best work since the Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
