An icon of American cinema and one of the most beloved actors of our times, William James Murray aka Bill Murray`s illustrious career spans over four decades. He first rose to prominence courtesy of his Emmy Award-winning stint in the variety show Saturday Night Live in the late 1970s and landed his first starring role with the comedy film Meatballs (1979). Subsequently, Murray established himself as one of the foremost comedians of American cinema in the 1980s through movies like Caddyshack (1980), Stripes (1981), Tootsie (1982), the cult classic Ghostbusters (1984), Scrooged (1988) and Ghostbusters II (1989). At the peak of his career, Murray also ventured into screenwriting and filmmaking through acclaimed movies like The Razor`s Edge (1984) and Quick Change (1990).

In the second decade of his career, Murray continued to wow the audience through memorable performances in films like What About Bob? (1991), Groundhog Day (1993), Ed Wood (1994) and Rushmore (1998) - the last of which earned him several accolades, including an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actor and a Golden Globe nomination in the same category. Rushmore (1998) also marked the first of many recurring collaborations between the actor and filmmaker Wes Anderson. The 2003 romantic comedy-drama Lost in Translation gave Murray one of the most iconic roles of his career. The film, which recounted the story of a unique relationship between a disillusioned movie star and a lonely young woman, went on to win an Academy Award and earned Murray the first Oscar nomination of his career.

Murray`s association with writer-director Wes Anderson has produced some of his most memorable roles in the past two decades. Following Rushmore (1998), the duo worked together on acclaimed movies like The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), The Darjeeling Limited (2007), the stop-motion animated comedy Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), Moonrise Kingdom (2012) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014). The comedy-drama Broken Flowers (2005), the drama film Get Low (2009), the comedy-drama St. Vincent (2014) and the fantasy adventure film The Jungle Book (2016) are among Murray`s other notable acting credits since the turn of the millennium. In 2018, the actor reunited with Wes Anderson for a voice role in the acclaimed stop-motion animated comedy Isle of Dogs.
