DreamWorks’ B.O.O. Adds Bill Murray to Cast List
While actor Bill Murray has pretty much excused himself from the Ghostbusters 3, he’s not yet done with the world of the paranormal, as the veteran actor/comedian has recently been added to the cast list of DreamWorks Animation’s 2015 supernatural action comedy feature, B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations. Murray will be joining an already-impressive cast list that consists of Jennifer Coolidge, Octavia Spencer, Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer.
“Bill Murray is the perfect actor to bring this character to life – or should I say ‘after-life?” said director Tony Leondis (Igor). “Along with Jennifer and Octavia, this is a dream cast. I can’t imagine a team more capable of packing a funnier punch to this broadly comedic ghost story.”
B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations focuses on two bumbling apparitions who are recruited by the titular organization, which serves as the ghost world’s elite counter-haunting unit. The duo’s afterlives are turned upside down when they find themselves facing off against the planet’s greatest haunter.
