Happy Birthday 60th Bill Murray

It has been a brilliant career, Bill Murray. Happy 60th Birthday.

I just read the following on the IMDB:

Was considered for the role of Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977).

That would have been absolutely brilliant. Of course, I think even then he would have cracked George Lucas over his knee, but it would have been worth it.

So even those there have been missteps (you almost made Garfield watchable... almost), your life and career have given joy to millions of people, and you should be applauded for your style and grace.

Let's hope you have many more birthdays after this. Huzzah!

I've watched What About Bob? twice this week, and it's only Tuesday. I love this man so much. He's like the only comedian from his generation who was able to stay funny and relevant.

I don't know that he would have been a good Han Solo, though. I'd marry the guy in a second, but I think Han is dashing in a way that Murray isn't (sorry). Although, I think it would have been interesting to see him as Indiana Jones.

Amber: I think he would have been a very different Han Solo... much like Nick Nolte would have been.

Mayren: Yeah, but we all got to hear him repent for Garfield.
