Bill Murray Confirmed to Play FDR in Hyde On Hudson

By

Bill Murray, the hardest man to pin down in show business, has signed on to play a cousin-kissin’ Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Hyde On Hudson, a dramedy from Focus Features. The movie, to be directed by Notting Hill’s Roger Michell, will be “about FDR romancing his distant cousin during a weekend visit from the King and Queen of England.” Note to the Ghostbusters III hopeful: he probably still hasn’t read that script. Oh, Murray, you lovable prick.
