What Does It Take To Cast Bill Murray? One USC Student Tried!

It's safe to say that film students studying in L.A. are an ambitious bunch — the industry is already saturated with tons of talent, and making a name for yourself in Tinseltown is about as hard as finding a parking spot on a Saturday night. And, while some are happy to settle for good grades, others attempt to shoot for the stars — literally!
Christopher Guerrero, a 27-year-old USC grad student, drafted his entire thesis script with Bill Murray in mind as the flick's main character. Of course, Guerrero has never spoken to the Hollywood heavyweight — so rather than scrapping the decision altogether, he has attempted to reach out to Murray in a very Murray manner, by petitioning for a holiday in his honor. Convincing the U.S. government to replace Groundhog Day with Los Angeles Bill Murray Appreciation Day (a.k.a. BMAD) predictably failed, so he will continue with the original shooting schedule, which begins in May. He'll likely cast another actor for the part of the chancellor in You Had Me at Goodbye (he's also open to Ted Danson or Dustin Hoffman taking on the role), but hasn't given up hope on the Lost In Translation star (Murray apparently left Sofia Coppola hanging, too!). One thing's for sure, this student gets an A for effort! (LA Weekly)
