Bill Murray (1950 - )

Films DeathsEdit

  • Loose Shoes (Coming Attractions; Quackers) (1980) [Lefty Schwartz]: Executed (off-screen) in the electric chair in a black & white parody of 1930s prison movies; we see Bill being asked to hold a pot roast by the warden (Lewis Arquette), followed by a shot of the cooked roast. (Played for comic effect, obviously).
  • Little Shop of Horrors (1986) [Arthur Denton]: Although his fate isn't revealed in the final cut, the alternate ending (available on the Director's Cut Blu-ray) suggests that he (along with the rest of the world) would have been destroyed by the army of giant plants.
  • Scrooged (1988) [Frank Cross]: Dies (off-screen) shortly before the start of the future scene, when the Ghost of Christmas Future brings him to witness his own funeral and cremation. This vision of the future is later prevented when Bill changes his ways.
  • Groundhog Day (1993) [Phil Connors]: Dies a number of times while caught in a time-loop, including a car crash, a jump from a building, and a scene where he electrocutes himself by dropping a toaster in his bathtub. (Each "death" is immediately followed by him waking up again that same morning.)
  • Wild Things (1998) [Kenneth Bowden]: Dies (off-screen) after Neve Campbell poisons his drink.
  • Osmosis Jones (2001) [Frank]: Is briefly clinically dead when he goes into cardiac arrest and flatlines; he is revived when Osmosis Jones (voiced by Chris Rock) returns Bill's missing hypothalamus chromosome.
  • City of Ember (2008) [Mayor Cole]: Eaten (off-screen) by a giant mole when Bill tries to hide in his bunker and discovers that the mole has gotten in; the scene ends with Bill screaming as the mole attacks him.
  • Ghostbusters (2016) [Martin Heiss]: Falls to his death when a ghost dragon emerges from a trap that Kristen Wiig opens (to prove that it is in fact real) and throws him out of a window. (In the tie-in book, Ghosts of Our Past: Both Figuratively and Literally, the character survives to write an apolgetic foreword, but since the film itself implies he died, we'll leave this here.)

TV DeathsEdit

  • Saturday Night Live (Mar. 11, 1978) [Bill Murray]: In a sketch set in the future, he dies (off-screen) under unspecified circumstances some time before the sketch begins; his death is mentioned when John Belushi reminisces about his dead cast-mates while visiting the cemetery.
  • Saturday Night Live (Mar. 21, 1987) [Dad]: In the "Mikey can't shoot" sketch, he is shot in the gut by Dana Carvey after he tries to push Victoria Jackson around. Before dying, Bill tells Dana how proud he is of him for shooting him. (Played for comic effect.)
  • Parks and Recreation: Two Funerals (2015) [Mayor Walter Gunderson]: Dies (off screen) of unspecified causes. His body is shown lying in an open casket as Adam Scott presides over his wake in the city council chambers. (Played for comic effect).
