In the latest example of why we all love him, Bill Murray has fessed up to a Family Feud obsession. And not just any obsession, either — according to Murray, his devotion to the syndicated game show is defined by a very specific viewing habit. Not surprisingly, this secret tactic toes the line between kooky and genius which, you know, basically sums up the brilliance of Murray himself.
While Murray has been known to crash things like house parties and personal photoshoots to reveal new sides of himself, this latest revelation came courtesy of Amy Schumer. The comedian got Murray to open up about his viewing preferences (among many other things) for her 3 Girls 1 Keith podcast, which also features co-hosts Bridget Everett, Rachel Feinstein and Keith Robinson. During the candid convo, Murray admitted that the show he watches most at home is Family Feud. There’s a twist, though.
“I’m going to give you my little secret: I record it. I can come home and I have recorded 61 episodes of Family Feud, because it’s on all day long. It’s on all day long and by law it has to be on all day long,” he said, building up to his big reveal. “But then, what I do is I take the time to fast forward in each episode all the way to Fast Money. ‘Cause that to me is the excitement part of the show.”
Murray’s justification for skipping the early rounds? “I don’t always respect their tactics.”
Schumer also managed to get Murray to divulge that he applied to work in an airport at one of his favorite dining chains. He cited it as the one job he’d like to do outside of acting. “I did fill out an application at P.F. Chang’s at the Atlanta airport, because I think that’s one of the great places,” Murray said. “To do what? Just any job?” Schumer asked, to which he responded, “It looks like the best time.” (P.F. Chang’s went ahead and extended a job offer via Twitter, in case Murray’s still interested in the gig.)
