Pajiba Exclusive: Bill Murray Is Awesome
Jay Leno returned to the "Tonight Show," last night, where Jamie Foxx apparently sprayed champagne on the audience and did an embarrassing "Welcome Back ... Jay Leno" callback (the champagne spraying was probably a metaphor for something, but I'm not fucking Freud, people. You figure it out). Did anyone catch Leno's return? Please God, say you didn't? Do not tell me you tuned in to that blubbering sycophantic company man to watch him completely erase the last trace of Conan's memory over on NBC, you ass-raping traitors.
Meanwhile, over on Letterman, Bill Murray -- who was Dave's first guest on both his old and his new show -- appropriately came on to counter-program Jamie Foxx's corporate ass-kissery. Murray, per usual, gagged it up, but the pertinent information from last night's broadcast was that Murray -- like many of us -- feels that Ghostbusters 3 is a "nightmare," revealing that he'd only do it if they managed to kill him off in the first reel. Apparently, they've done just that (word is, he'll be appearing as a ghost afterwards).
Catch the clip, and hang out for a pretty fun Ghostbusters-related anecdote:
How great is Bill Murray, people? And of course he doesn't want to do Ghostbusters. When Bill Murray sells out, he doesn't show his face (see Garfield). The man's a national treasure. He and Betty White should be frozen and put into the Smithsonian. (But not until after Ghostbusters 3 -- I mean, if they're going to make it anyway, we may as well get a few minutes with Murray).
