Lost & Found: Bill Murray Finds Exotic Flowers for His Brother
Bill Murray is practically a comedic demigod at this point in his career. His list of hilarious roles would make one of the most impressive resumes ever drafted. It would have to be printed on the finest card stock with the perfect shade of off-white coloring and a touch of gold leaf. But not too much gold leaf — no, Bill Murray is a classy guy.
Some of the smaller bits he’s done have fallen through the cracks over the years — dwarfed by roles in amazing films like ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Caddyshack,’ ‘Rushmore,’ ‘Lost In Translation,’ ‘What About Bob?’, ‘Scrooged,’ ‘Garfield’ and ‘Space Jam.’ Wait, what were those last two? Oh well, nobody’s perfect.
This particular short film finds Murray assisting a rather reserved fellow looking for something special in a flower shop. This fellow, played by Bill’s brother and fellow accomplished actor Brian Doyle Murray, isn’t satisfied with the humdrum selection of flowers available to the public. He states that he’s looking for “something exotic.” He does get what he wants … eventually.
And Brian is no slouch either. He’s appeared in many of the same movies as his younger brother Bill, as well as plenty of his own. And he starred in the criminally neglected movie ‘Cabin Boy’ alongside Chris Elliott. He’s still busy, doing awesome stuff like voicing characters on shows like ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ and ‘Adventure Time.’
