Blind Items Revealed #1

March 19, 2018

This permanent A list mostly movie actor, as part of his rider, required the hotel bar where he was staying to be open 24/7 for his convenience. So, after last call, it was all his for the night and he had it to himself and a few dozen of his friends and people he met during the day. Apparently, he drank through the most expensive stuff first costing the movie production to the tune of $20K just the first night.

An open bar is a kindness blind.

Well, you always drink the most expensive stuff first so you can savor it. If you get too blotto, it's wasted.

"People he met throughout the day" = total Bill Murray move.

Audie said...

This makes me adore the man even more- sharing the perks. Love Bill.

Kno Won Uno said...

Sounds like a great party.

Kelly said...

Pretty sure he doesn't drink himself

Everyone guessed Affleck and Depp, lol!

Party down, but I don't consider him permanent A list.

My Bill Murray Story
I lived in Charleston, SC for 17 years and lots of locals have had run-ins with Bill Murray who has a house and spends a lot of time there. A few years ago, I was at a Thai restaurant ordering takeout shortly before Christmas. Next door was a Christmas tree lot, and I walked over to browse the little gift shack attached to the lot. A kid was tying a tree to the top of a black Mercedes station wagon as I walked inside. I saw a shelf with gallon glass jars of small batch apple cider, so I grabbed a couple bottles to give to my father. Walking up to the register, I catch Bill Murray milling about. As I set the cider down at the register and before I can react to Mr. Murray, the proprietor comes up to me and literally places a small, fluffy bunny rabbit into my arms. "Hey, we're looking for homes for these little bunnies," said the lot owner. "They make great pets, are really cute and aren't too much trouble to care for!" I looked down at the round eyes and twitching nose of the little bunny in my arms before replying, "That's all well and good, but what do they taste like?" Tears of laughter erupted behind me while the shop owner gave me a horrified look. Bill Murray walked up beside me, giggling, and said, "They should include a recipe book when you adopt!" After handing the rabbit back, I told Mr. Murray I was a fan. Motioning toward the unfiltered apple cider, I told him it was supposed to be medicinal. "Well, its got to be good," said Bill as he pointed to the label on the bottles which read "Murray's Apple Cider" [side note: just a coincidence; he's not bottling cider]. After a brief exchange of pleasantries and wishes of Merry Christmas, I walked back over to the restaurant and he got into the black Mercedes as we went our separate ways, but I will always be able to say that I made Bill Murray explode with laughter.

Why? It's not like it's a hardship to spend someone else's money. He didn't pay for a thing.

Dusty Fairy said...

This is awesome. And I don’t remember anyone guessing Bill!

nancer said...

ernie, even better is you know bill told everyone that story over christmas. about the funny guy he met while buying a tree. YOU. that's pretty cool. (and what you said was really funny too.)

VDOVault said...

Okay not exactly who I was expecting, but kinda cool anyway.

He looked like he was having a great time in Austin during SXSW.

He's been doing poetry all over the place as well which is also cool in my book.

Ernie McCracken said...

Thanks, @nancer! There are tons of funny Bill Murray interactions posted online. He likes to crash parties at restaurants and other public places, ha ha!

Samantha Willow said...

Ha we were all wayyyyyy off on this one.

La-Juice said...

Bill Murray is definitely permanent A list- he's probably due at least A+ or A++

Kel said...

Great story!!!

Jean Grey said...

@ Ernie thanks for sharing your story. It put a smile on my face.

"small batch apple cider" is the most hipster thing I heard in a long time. And I live 15 minutes from the hipster shithole epicenter of the world, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Hi neighbor

Bill Murray was in my town for a golf tournament last year, and stayed in a local family owned hotel, not a fancy hotel or private house. That is pretty cool in my book.

About 35 years ago my sister was on an elevator and when the door opened Bill Murray got on. They were the only ones on the elevator. She said he had the most awful skin she had ever seen.

littlewing said...

so Murray gets a pass on DV?


Remie Ross said...

That's pretty kick ass!

Craig said...

I find this odd. Most of the hotels have a bar that is open as long as you are drinking and if you have been there a few nights and they have got to know you they will set you up with what you need and go to bed, leaving you in the bar. It's not like the night manager is far away.

And what's with Americans and what they call 'cider'? There is only one kind of cider. It originates from the south west of England and it will get you falling on your ass shitfaced in no time. Everything else is apple juice.

Pope of Hollywood said...

Probably drinking because the movie is absolute Isle of Dog Shit

Kiki Jones said...

Bill Murray is, was and ALWAYS will be permanent A list.

Babsbunny said...

I absolutely love this guy. The random run-ins... the fact that he guest-bartended for a weekend at his kid's bar in BK... the way he cried when his team won the world Series. Love it. Not fake and gives none of the f*cks.
If you're gonna give someone leeway to have ryders... then by all means, put in ridiculous requests and see what you can get. It's like having someone give you a shell of a car and saying... which perks do you want? Add them here. Of course you're getting the heated seats and the power mirrors!
