Bill Murray is FDR, in this Hyde Park trailer

1 min read

I’m a huge Bill Murray fan. He’s busted ghosts in one of my all time favourite films, Ghostbusters, made a mockery of the army in Stripes, and he’s also the reason why I hunt gophers, for his role as Spackler in Caddyshack.

Despite his massive presence, he rarely appears in films these days, as he is notorious for being rather picky with scripts, and adlibbing when the mood suits him.

But for his role as the American president Franklin D Roosevelt, he’s playing the role by the book it would appear, something that is remarkeably refreshing.

Based on the real world meeting between FDR and King George VI (Or Bertie as some of us call him), Hyde Park on Hudson looks like your usual period piece, albeit with a touch more humour and charm, as Murray proves to be a rather witty host that smooths things over for the british monarchy, on the eve of World War 2.

Hyde Park on Hudson releases at the end of this year, and stars Bill Murray, Laura Linney, Olivia Williams, Samuel West, Olivia Colman, Elizabeth Wilson, Elizabeth Marvel, Eleanor Bron.

Roger Michell direct, while a wheelchair bound Bill Murray proves that he is still cooler than everybody else, in the industry today.

    Well, we’ll see Bill as long as Wes Anderson makes movies. He’s been in all of them, I think, including the upcoming one.
