Bill Murray’s Dream Job Is Not What You Think
The eccentric icon yearns to work at P.F. Chang’s in the Atlanta airport.
From the outside, it would appear that Bill Murray has had a dream career – the seminal years on “Saturday Night Live,” the movie stardom, the accolades and outside ventures. But the 69-year-old icon of eccentricity has revealed that his own dream job has actually eluded his grasp – and it’s not what you might think.
After completing his work on Jim Jarmusch’s 2005 film “Broken Flowers,” Murray recently told Amy Schumer during an appearance on her podcast series “Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls, 1 Keith,” the performer felt he had pretty much hit his peak.
“I thought I could never do any better than that, and I really thought that’s the end. I’m done,” Murray told Schumer. “And I was kind of looking for another career.”
While no other options initially presented themselves, Murray deadpanned, “I did fill out an application at P.F. Chang’s in the Atlanta airport because I think that’s one of the great places.”
“To do what?” Schumer asked. “To do any job? A busser …?”
“Just to work there,” he responded. “It looks like they’re having the best time, working at P.F. Chang’s.”
All these years later, it looks as if Murray’s dream could come true. Following the actor’s revelation on Schumer’s podcast, P.F. Chang’s immediately extended an offer on social media.
“Bill, you’re hired!” the Asian-themed casual dining chain tweeted. “When can you start?”
Gopher it, Bill!
