Bill Murray

Today we're celebrating the 61st birthday of Bill Murray, one of Hollywood's most iconic comedic actors. Although he has been acting since the mid-1970s, he nabbed his first hit with his supporting role in 1980's Caddyshack. From there, Murray skyrocketed to superstardom, appearing in smash hits like 1984's Ghost Busters, 1986's Little Shop of Horrors and 1993's Groundhog Day. In 2004, he received an Academy Award nomination for his performance in 2003's Lost in Translation, giving his career a little bit of dramatic legitimacy as well. As he continues to act today, Murray always brings a strong presence to the screen, and it's always a fun sight to see him prancing around. So, for his birthday, I'd like to count down my five favorite of Murray's roles (as you can see below). I hope you enjoy them as you join me in wishing Bill Murray a happy 61st birthday!
