Raise your glasses to Hollywood funnyman Bill Murray - the star turns 60 on Tuesday.

Born in Illinois in 1950, Murray started out at comedy troupe Second City Chicago after dropping out of college - and became infamous for his dry humor and improvisational skills.

In 1974, he moved to New York City and landed a role on hit comedy sketch series "Saturday Night Live," where he shared the small screen with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.

Murray made the transition to film in the 1980s, and a string of box office hits such as "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day" sealed his place in the spotlight.

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Dinner for Schmucks,' 'Charlie St. Cloud,' & More

Dinner for Schmucks
The action thriller “Salt” turned out to be more complex than I initially thought. Promotional material made the film seem like it would be a run-of-the-mill rogue spy on the run story. Without spoiling the details, there is additional intrigue surrounding CIA agent Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie), and the accusation that she’s a Russian mole. Thankfully the filmmakers don’t reveal her motivations too early on, keeping them close to the chest until the final act.

Jolie convincingly plays a strong female heroine, however as an actress I don’t feel like she adds much flavor to the role itsel...

Robert Duvall had the cast and crew on new movie Get Low cowering in fear whenever they were around him - because The Godfather icon was an intimidating "time bomb", according to co-star Bill Murray.

The actor admits he was struck by Duvall's presence on the film set - but he refused to walk on egg shells around the star like the rest of the crew and tried to engage him in some playful banter.

He explains, "(There was) tension around the set. This guy is a time bomb and the ticking is audible. And so I just remember being on the set and the first day - this guy's very serious... people a...

Bill Murray Wants A Funeral While He's Alive

Bill Murray's new film Get Low has given the actor a novel idea - have his funeral while he's still alive.

Co-star Robert Duvall's character does just that in the film, and that has got Murray thinking.

He explains, "I like the idea of having your funeral before you're gone. You can hear all these memoriums about yourself... It would be sort of a baby comedy roast. You can get it over with and then you'd have a party.

"Suffering is the difference between reality and what you think reality is, so that could get your suffering done before your final hour."

Bill Murray made a public appearance at the Austin premiere of his latest film. "Get Low", a comedy in which he plays a funeral director trying to plan a man’s funeral party while he’s still alive, screened at the South by Southwest film festival on March 17. On stage at a Q&A following the film, Murray mugged and joked with the thousands of people who saw "Get Low" for the first time.

“It’s really a pleasure to come out with this film, because Austin’s not a safe town for people like us,” Murray said. “When we come out with a film like this, we’ve got two or three hours where we’re safe a...
