First Look Photo of Miley Cyrus and George Clooney in Bill Murray's A Very Murray Christmas

Post by hathaross on Wed Oct 14 2015, 14:58




Bill Murray and his friends are getting in the Christmas spirit a little early this year. 

The Golden Globe winner is the star of the upcoming Netflix original holiday special A Very Murray Christmas, directed and co-written by Sofia Coppola. 

"It just started from wanting to see Bill sing and our fondness for those old Christmas specials that were on TV in the '70s and '80s," Coppola says exclusively in the current issue of PEOPLE

And part of getting that "classic holiday special" vibe meant getting a ton of A-list stars to make an appearance – including George Clooney and Miley Cyrus


"Bill is friends with George, so that's how he came on. Then, we wanted a pop starlet," says Coppola. "I had met Miley through Marc Jacobs and she seemed really game and nice, so I asked through a friend." 

And Coppola says she was pleasantly surprised with how mych fun – and talented – Cyrus was. 

"She was a good sport. On the day we were shooting with her, we realized we were short on a song and we asked her if she could learn a second song," she says of how Cyrus' performance of "Silent Night" came about. "They just whipped that together over lunch! To hear her singing live on set with just the piano was really fantastic. I was impressed that she can really sing." 

A Very Murray Christmas premieres Dec. 3 on Netflix.

So if I hated those old 70s-80s Christmas specials I might hate this too?  Maybe George will redeem it.

George Clooney Sings (!) "Santa Wants Some Loving" With Bill Murray in A Very Murray Christmas

George Clooney is here to help you get in the holiday spirit in a very unlikely way: by singing with Bill Murray.
The Oscar winner appears in Murray's Netflix special, A Very Murray Christmas, as himself and gets in on the yuletide fun with "Santa Wants Some Loving." Plus Paul Schaffer is there too!
The plot of A Very Murray Christmas is a simple and familiar one: Bill Murray is hosting a holiday special at New York City's Carlyle, but a blizzard has other plans. Murray then celebrates the holidays with hotel employees, celebrities and anybody else who takes refuge in the hotel. In addition to Clooney, Schaffer and Murray, the cast also includes Maya Rudolph, Miley Cyrus, Julie White, Chris Rock, Amy Poehler, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman.

Clooney previously revealed he's not a fan of his own singing.

"Here's the thing, when I did O Brother, Where Art Thou? I went into a recording studio and T-Bone Burnett and Joel and Ethan [Coen] assumed that because I was Rosemary's [Clooney] nephew that I would be a great singer, and I kind of assumed that, too," he said in 2014. "Then we got into the recording studio and I sang "Man of Constant Sorrow" with all the music playing and I finished and looked up and there's that glass booth with all of them in it and no one would look me in the eye. Then they played it back and it was pretty bad. It was so bad that I made them destroy it."

What do you think of Clooney's pipes?



A Very Murray Christmas is streaming on Netflix now.

I think it's one of these 'you either hate it or love it' things...
I'm not on Netflix so I couldn't watch the whole movie but I definetely loved the things I could watch.

About the singing: For me it's like 'Mamma Mia' (the movie, not the musical). Pierce Brosnan's singing is really horrible and Meryl, Stellan, Colin and Julie don't sing good as well but just to have the courage to sing - and you know you can't sing at all - and to risk all your reputation as an actor is so great!
And I had a lot of discussions with friends who thought that they should have been dubbed whereas I think it's great that they didn't (although it must have been quite painful for the ABBAs).

Watched it last night. Wasn't great.  Very draggy.  Most of songs that weren't traditional Christmas Carols, or really upbeat like Jingle Bells, were really downbeat, sad and morose.  The whole show should have been very upbeat - like a Very Happy Christmas.
Then there was George, being his usual gorgeous self, relaxed and gracious.  Didn't care for song he did with Bill but Hey.  The little he sang with whole ensemble was more his way of doing it.
Had to see it in order to judge.  Won't win any awards! Very Happy
                      MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AT CLOONEY HOUSE

I thought it was very Bill Murray "like".  It suited his style ... darker, melancholy.  A Saturday Night Live extended skit comes to mind.  God knows so many SNL skits are not that funny but that's what this show reminded me of.  Like patty girl said George was George.  For the small part that he played he was fine.  He could have been far more entertaining but Sofia didn't give him too much to work with.  And maybe he didn't have the time to contribute more.  He was a last minute replacement.

I think you have to be in the right mood to really appreciate this show - or maybe it's just that Bill Murray's humor is an acquired taste. I really enjoyed it. Yes, it was a bit slow in parts and the music was definitely not the usual Christmas fare, but if it had been more "traditional" it wouldn't have been Bill Murray. - (And who knew Maya Rudolph could sing like that?!!! WOW! - or Miley Cyrus for that matter- a big surprise!)

I think George's 'singing' is meant to be bad . . . all part of the joke. But yeah, painful for me to watch too.

I actually think the song was supposed to be sung by someone else who didn't turn up, so basically they had to improvise.........

A rapper, Rick Ross was supposed to play Santa and rap to Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin.  But he didn't show for the taping.  I think George was still supposed to be in the special but with Ross not showing for the taping that day it was decided that Murray would sing the song and George would chime in on the chorus. Actually George volunteered to do this part. This is according to the article on Bill Murray in December's Vanity Fair.  So it was last minute "triage" to avert a mini disaster.

I just subscribed to Netflix and watched 'A Very Murray Christmas'. And I have to say that it's a real mess! And I enjoyed it so much! It was so much fun to watch it and everybody seemed to have fun who was in it. 
I loved it!
