Bill Murray is Santa
A Bill Murray/Coen Bros. collaboration is something I've been waiting for for a long time. I may just finally get my wish, although not as completely as I once hoped. Murray is in negotiations to star in the Coen Bros. production of BAD SANTA, which will be directed by Terry Zwigoff (GHOST WORLD). He would play a conman in the film, posing as Santa and touring department stores at Christmas time while robbing unsuspecting kids and parents of cash. "Santa" meets his match in an 8-year-old boy who teaches him the true meaning of Christmas. This could make for a really great match. Now if only they could get the guy who played Mickey on "Seinfeld" to star as his elf buddy. Then we'd be cooking with bacon!
