Bill Murray, the former “Saturday Night Live” stalwart who went on to star in feature films including “Ghostbusters” and “Groundhog Day,” has a new role in a comedy series. Variety reports that Murray will be a part of Quibi’s “The Now,” from “Green Book” director Peter Farrelly.
Murray will have a recurring role opposite series star Dave Franco.
“’The Now’ centers on Ed Poole (Franco), who is about to take his own life when he finds out from his mother that his brother just died by suicide and his dad also did in the past,” Variety reports. “Ed quickly realizes the only thing that will make his life worth living is to ‘forget the past, screw the future and just live in the now.’”
Murray has reportedly already completed shooting on his part, although the series remains in production.
“Others set to join Franco and Murray in the short-form show include O’Shea Jackson Jr., Daryl Hannah, Jimmy Tatro, Alyssa Milano, Rob Yang and Lex Scott Davis,” Variety notes.
