Bill Murray's first Comic-Con appearance was pure rock 'n' roll
Bill Murray’s Comic-Con debut was one to remember. The legendary actor, who has too many nominations and awards to mention, entered Hall H to the pounding sounds of Deep Purple’s "Smoke on the Water." Predictably the crowd went berserk when they saw the star of the upcoming film "Rock the Kasbah," in which Murray plays a washed-up music manager taking his remaining client on a USO tour of Afghanistan. Murray has never been one to be low key. And his Comic-Con premiere was no different.
Here’s a collection of Murray’s greatest hits from the press conference.
On his first appearance at Comic-Con: "We started this morning with bagels and then some tequila.”
On his favorite movie role ("Ghostbusters," naturally): "Once upon a time, I did save the city of New York. And I had the coolest damn car to drive around Manhattan."
On how he keeps the mood easy on set: "I go to work with a knife strapped to my leg; it means people will know their lines."
On his partying preference: "Some of the best parties I've ever been to are with nerds."
On himself: "I’m rock 'n' roll…That's what I am."
