Bill Murray stars in Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," opposite Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Francis McDormand, as Walt Bishop. Murray will next be seen opposite Laura Linney in Roger Michell's historical tale "Hyde Park on Hudson," as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Roman Coppola's "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III."

Murray's portrayal of Herman Blume in Wes Anderson's "Rushmore" brought him the New York Film Critics Circle, National Society of Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, and Independent Spirit Awards for Best Supporting Actor. He has acted in all of Anderson's subsequent features, including "The Royal Tenenbaums," "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," "The Darjeeling Limited" and "Fantastic Mr. Fox" (in voiceover).

Born in Chicago, Bill Murray began his acting career there with the improvisational troupe Second City. He joined the cast of NBC's "Saturday Night Live" in the show's second season, and shortly thereafter won an Emmy Award as one of the show's writers. He later authored the book "Cinderella Story: My Life in Golf."

After making his screen debut in Ivan Reitman's "Meatballs," Murray reteamed with the director on "Stripes" and the "Ghostbusters" movies. Murray's film credits also include Harold Ramis' "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day"; Art Linson's "Where the Buffalo Roam"; Sydney Pollack's "Tootsie"; John Byrum's "The Razor's Edge" (1984); Richard Donner's "Scrooged"; Frank Oz's "What About Bob?"; John McNaughton's "Mad Dog and Glory" and "Wild Things"; Tim Burton's "Ed Wood"; Peter and Bobby Farrelly's "Kingpin"; Jon Amiel's "The Man Who Knew Too Little"; Tim Robbins' "Cradle Will Rock"; Michael Almereyda's "Hamlet" (2000); Gil Kenan's "City of Ember"; Aaron Schneider's "Get Low," for which he received Spirit and Satellite Award nominations; and Mitch Glazer's "Passion Play."

For his performance as Bob Harris in Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation," Murray received the Golden Globe, BAFTA, Independent Spirit, and New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago film critics' Awards, among others, for Best Actor. He also was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild and Academy Awards.

He has starred for Jim Jarmusch in the "Delirium" segment of "Coffee and Cigarettes," "Broken Flowers," for which he was nominated for a Satellite Award for Best Actor, and "The Limits of Control."
