Bill Murray Dresses Like Shakespeare on Kimmel and Talks Cubs, World Series

The Chicago native made a bold wardrobe choice on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Bill Murray is a man who knows that he can do whatever the hell he wants, and last night he wanted to wear a Shakespearean theater costume — complete with tights and full makeup — in his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, which is filming in Brooklyn this week. 

Murray was ostensibly on the show to promote his upcoming projects — the movieRock The Kasbah and the Netflix special A Very Murray Christmas — but spent more time talking about the Chicago Cubs, who are trailing the New York Mets 2-0 in the National League Champion Series. They lost their first two games in New York but return to Chicago on Tuesday.

“I believe in the words of the song, you ‘root root root for the home team; if they don’t win it’s a shame’ … the ideal scenario is for each home team to win all its games, until the seventh game,” he joked. (If the series goes to game seven, the final game will be played in New York.)

Talking about A Very Murray Christmas, the Lost in Translation actor made a surprising confession: He’s totally clueless about Netflix.

“I’ve never seen Netflix in my life,” Murray said. “I have no idea how to get it. And it’s unfortunate that I’ll never see this show.”
