To understand Bill Murray, an entire college course could be given on the cult-like popularity of the talented actor. The man is famous for his roles in iconic films such as “Caddyshack,” “Ghostbusters,” “Lost In Translation”, Aquatic Life of Steve Zissou”, “Zombieland” and “Groundhog Day”.Murray lives by his own code, and loves to break convention and tries to get to know regular people on a personal level that you wouldn’t expect from a celebrity. These eight real life stories of the crazy and random things that Bill Murray ends up doing is why he is one of the most loved, talented and completely insane actors of our times.
Ever wonder how long Bill Murray’s character was stuck in ‘Groundhog Day’ for? Every year, on February 2, town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, celebrates Groundhog Day – the annual celebration based around a prophetic rodent’s ability to foresee the early arrival of spring. The tradition was popularised by the 1993 film of the same name starring Bill Murray as sardonic TV weatherman Phil Connors, fated to repeat the same day in Punxsutawney over and over again.

Here are 20 of the very coolest we’ve seen.
