It's (Hopefully Not) In The Hole!
If there's one thing which has
marked Bill Murray's career after leaving Saturday Night Live, it
has been a willingness to take career leaps. Starting with broad
comedy films, most notably Caddyshack and Ghostbusters, Murray has
been fearless in moving into literary drama, romatic comdedy and
even Shakespeare, often cast against type.
But this August 15, Murray is scheduled to take an entirely
different kind of leap. The 57-year-old Illinois native will help
honor veterans during the 50th Annual Chicago Air and Water Show by
making a tandem parachute leap.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the stunt is on behalf of USO
Illinois, an organization that provides aid to wounded war vets at
home and overseas.
The event will feature other stars, too. Gary Sinise of CSI: NY
will be there playing bass with his "Lt. Dan Band," named after his
character in Forest Gump. Brady Bunch mom and denture-adhesive
spokeswoman Florence Henderson will sing the national anthem. The
US Navy Blue Angels will fly, and the evening will end in a massive
But Murray will likely be focused on his next big leap. He'll
certainly have the best help available. The US Army Golden Knights
are the team which accompanied President George Herbert Walker Bush
for both his freefall last year, and on a tandem jump to celebrate
his 80th birthday back in 2004.
