• Bill Murray Jams With a Bar Band for 45 Minutes

    Watch the iconic actor sing "House of the Rising Sun"

    If you’ve paid any attention to Bill Murray over the past few years, you may have noticed that he really enjoys mixing it up with common people. There’s even a website devoted entirely to “Bill Murray Stories,” where regular people have detailed their encounters with the screen icon. Murray has been known to tend bar at local pubs, attend random college classes, and even play impromptu games of kickball with strangers. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

    Down in St. Augustine, Florida, the actor owns the Murray Bros. Caddyshack Restaurant, and on Friday night, he took to the stage for nearly an hour to sing some karaoke tunes along with the live house band, including covers of “House of the Rising Sun” and “Gloria.” It was all to top off the annual Caddyshack charity golf game, which you can be certain is one of the most entertaining golf outings ever.

    Apparently, it’s not the first time Murray has done this, either. Check out another performance of “Gloria” from a few years back:

    And who could forget this memorable scene from the movie “Lost in Translation”?

    Three cheers for the awesomeness that is Bill Murray. You can currently see him starring in “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” directed by the amazing Wes Anderson. Here’s a clip:
