Good ol’ Bill Murray. From being a Ghostbuster, to a Caddyshack groundskeeper, Murray has had some amazing and memorable roles in his career. Now, he’ll once again join Wes Anderson on the director’s new film, set to film in Spain. The casting news of Murray reuniting with Anderson should not come as any big surprise. Wes Anderson reusing past actors he has worked with is par for the course.

Other films on which the two have collaborated are: Isle of Dogs, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, The Darjeeling Limited, and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
