Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Gentlemen though Murray Becky have you ever heard the expression bill? Murray story I have what is a Bill Murray Story? Apparently all kinds of people have their own bill. Murray story part of it's like urban legend. You'll never believe who snuck up behind a stranger and covered his eyes and said guess who and then they turned around and it was Bill Murray. So there's Oh there's an entire book I think of Bill Murray Stories. I've read a bunch of them. Netflix series. I believe knowing bill I think most of these stories are probably actually true Because this is a pretty whimsical guy. And he's a bit of a jokester. Had people are always amazed who show up at a party in Austin a house party where he just shows up or I think at one point he got pulled over after he was driving a bunch of people home from a party somewhere in Scandinavia on a golf court carton and cartons. They'd all been drinking. So you have your own bill. Murray stories absolutely. Yeah sure we got to Know Bill. Murray over the years through the Pebble Beach. At and T. pro-am Where we'd convince them sometimes to come on the show and the thing with bill is you never know. It's really tough to pin him down. You'd invite him on the snow he'd say sure. I'll be there maybe and say well we're doing a live show so yeah okay. I might come now. We have gotten lucky a few times. Here's Bill Murray on Squawk box back in two thousand twelve. Do you know that that you've reached icon level domer-? Thank you for joining Laurie. Read somewhere warm so I want to back up a second to ask you about what it's like actually requesting Bill Murray on a television show. It's like a wild goose chase. You know you're on a scavenger hunt to basically try and track him down because usually for people in Hollywood they have people right. They have age easily publicists. They have assistance. They have people you can track down based on the press releases based on their websites based on whatever you can find those people and eventually get a message passed through most likely Bill Murray doesn't have any people. Have any of that apparatus. He's got an eight hundred line so there's an eight hundred phone line that you can call and leave a request. And maybe he gets it. Maybe he doesn't But you know it's not just us who have left chasing this If you go online you can see Sofia Coppola talk about how she tried to track them down when she world lost in translation for him. She tells US amazingly funny story about how she kept leaving messages on. The eight hundred line didn't get back from anybody and NFL spoke. Well I'll tell you. She eventually says I think she called me. She knew somebody she knew him. Yeah I think she called. Robert Deniro and said Bobby. How are you doing right? You know. I've got something for you and I'm just writing the script. And she was telling the whole thing and she said and I just wondered if you had bill Murray's phone number and then she told her Dad Francis Ford Coppola about that and he said you did what you call them and basically says. I've got this great script and give me somebody else's phone. This is a good time to point out that the urban legend myth making machine around Bill Murray is immense. We did a little fact checking about this particular story and found two thousand four interview that Sofia Coppola did with the American Film Institute about Lost in Translation. It is available on Youtube and the legendary actor who was her constantly. Era in the casting of bill. Murray was actually Alpa Chino. We did that. I recall about five or six. I got him. That said. That's what happened. We just kept pestering leaving these messages on it. I've also heard he's never told me this but I've also heard that. Sometimes he used to pick up the eight hundred line and pretend like it wasn't him. Yes maybe he's here. I'll try and leave the message for him. So that's right. It's not easy but when you get through man that is the feeling of total success right. The best path of all time. There was a time where we're maybe they thought you were crazy out here. Now you are on every single marketing material that. At and T. Has beaches a picture of you? Sort of a a watercolour of you like tipping your hat to the crowd as you as you want. Cinderella story dating. You know when you come on too hard you know. There's like a creepy desperate fields. You know people just kind of go like you're nice though but it's It was we just kept trying to stay relaxed and loose and we always believe you if you could have the most fun and win in another squawk in Pebble Beach. Tv Appearance Spill Murray reflected on the movie. That comes back again and again. What were you doing on groundhogs day because I know what I was doing? Well one you tell us what you're doing what I was doing. I was watching. Groundhog'S DAY GROUNDHOG. Dash and say there's an AMC marathon. They played it again and again and again so I caught the end of one and the beginning of the next. Why why do you think that has such slunk deputy? Well I think because. Amc Can get away with showing all day long. I'm trying to cover all the holidays. You know the major ones in the minor ones. I think it's an extraordinary movie. It's it's in the library of Congress. It's a very important movie. The the premise of that film is is a great one and the executions very very good so I mean. I don't take a lot of credit for the kid who's idea was danny. Rubin is a great that I mean. He was touched touched by God when he wrote that. Obviously he's known for his comedy career for ghostbusters and Groundhog Day and lost in translation and caddyshack where he played a groundskeeper on a golf course and he has this completely separate career in golf. He's really great player. In fact he won the Pebble Beach. At and T. pro-am the year. That I came on with us so I've been trying to convince my percents that were good luck. Charms and your captain scrounged Groundhog Day. Kingpin Caddyshack Lost in translation stripes and soon ghostbusters afterlife. Our next celebrity is a Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actor. He's a comedian. A producer writer and was a member of the greatest comedy ensemble ever created with Saturday night. Live playing four. Save one life thing please. Welcome to the three hundred celebrity challenge to turned eastward Murray Cup champion the wall in bill. Murray not supposed to have favorites. But I do couldn't be wealthy. Do they do this thing? It's pretty cool. It's a celebrity golf tournament and they get anywhere from eight to twelve lately. I think teams have been formed for and the way it's kind of evolved is there's two teams one is the Murray team. Which is bill. Murray the others the Eastwood Team Clint Eastwood and so the two of them come on were different right. And and head up these two crews these two teams and they're competing for the charity of their choice each of them they play five holes there three m sponsors the event and I asked Bill. Why did it he said well there's three people were nice normal from the Midwest kind of Nice people And I think they all appreciate doing this for the charity. Because when this used to be the Bob Hope Classic these talk about how it was for charity and I think at the time. Sometimes they'd break even maybe sometimes they'd raise a little bit of money for the local charities but since the corporate sponsorships have come in and since this has really happened they actually a ton of money. I think there is like seventeen million dollars for local charities and there's a big crowd that comes out even though this is the day before the actual tournament begins there. A lot of people come out because this is a chance to get up close to Clint Eastwood. Bill Murray Huey Lewis is paid and played in the past spray. Remount Romano's plans also my twentieth year playing starting to get shorty that anybody watch get shorty your own and you got to be podcast her for the first time. Yeah I just Kinda followed them along and it was my first time ever doing a podcast off my phone by myself. So it's really proud that I was able to figure out the technology behind. This is becky quick. And I'm trying to test to see if I can make this microphone work At the AT and T. pro-am in pebble beach and we're going to be following some celebrity golfers around today. Thank you very much. Can you interview they. Hi Okay thank you very much because on this we have to pretend. I'm doing a podcast for Squawk as we do every day. So that's all over the place. I'm saying this is how I worked at it because I don't do the show today or tomorrow I'll do a podcast so I I was talking. I picked up some of the Natuna. We're talking to some of that. Sounds when you guys were talking. I just went over by the natural sound. Like it's when you're not talking to a microphone. I'm just picking up the goal over by the microphone so I can pick up like time. Well we were way the heck over there. That's very hard shot to stop because it goes away from you know it's just off the green right there but from where I was. That was pretty. I was pretty please yourself. I'm going to be a little difficult to be with for the next couple of hours. Back INTO SHAPE JOINS US on squawk Box Co. few times at the Pebble Beach pro-am and we've talked to him about a lot of different topics not just movies. And how chooses roles but also investing and entrepreneurship? Right what are some of the things that stand out to you about our conversations with him over here just how smart and thoughtful and how much of a business mind he really has? Because again that I used to think that was a really rare thing and it it look. It's rare for somebody to be so good and talented in one arena to take it to that. But I think a Lotta Times the pe- The top athletes the top entertainers The top singers. They do have very great business minds and that's just part of how they've gotten to be so good at what they are. The business goes hand in hand with that and a lot of them do think Beyond just the chosen career about the entire business of it. I I used to think that was really rare but the more of these people that I've met who are at the very top of their game if you're at the top of your game you're not there by accident. It's because you figured out how to navigate a very difficult Set of circumstances to get through to the top of your industry whatever that industry is And and bills really right right in line with those things. He's incredibly thoughtful. Deep thinker about a lot of things including investments. He watches CNBC A lot. I heard from him today. Been watching us so you know. This is the type of thing that he's interested in kind of thinking about the Fed is a we don't have long conversations.
