Everyone's favorite lovable grump, Bill Murray is already getting in the Christmas spirit. For his new film, St. Vincent he gave us a preview of his vocal talent by singing along to a Bob Dylan classic and now he's ready to fully showcase his range. So move over Mariah Carey, there's a new carol-singing diva in town.
Bill Murray is getting back together with the Lost In Translation director, Sophia Coppola for a Christmas carol special. The actor told Variety, "It's not going to be live. We're going to do it like a little movie. It won't have a format, but it's going to have music. It will have texture. It will have threads through it that are writing. There will be prose." Director Coppola added that she's excited to hear the actor "singing my song requests."
Well, consider this our official petition for a Bill Murray rendition of "All I Want For Christmas Is You." And yes, Bill Murray, the Santa outfit is mandatory.
