Bill Murray was in New York last night in advance of the Super Bowl, to promote his movie The Monuments Men, and of course, to campaign for the role of Peter Pan. Visiting his ol’ pal, David Letterman, Murray made an entrance that would’ve made Mary Martin proud — or broken her heart. Dressed in green — though looking more like Friar Tuck than Pan — and flying above the stage, Murray made his plea to NBC to star in its next live-musical. “I feel like this is my moment,” Murray said. “They’re thinking about re-staging Peter Pan, and I’m the guy.”
Watch him fly in and visit Letterman.
A Chicago guy to the core, Murray playfully mocked the New Yorkers who are dreading a cold-weather Super Bowl.
Murray stars in George Clooney’s Monuments Men, out Feb. 7, and Murray had nothing but nice things to say about his director, who’s become a pal.
Afterwards, Letterman shaved off Murray’s beard. Click here to watch the entire episode.
