Vulture have revealed that Bill Murray will take on a much more serious role than we are used to seeing him in. He will reportedly star as Franklin D Roosevelt in the film version of 'Hyde Park And The Hudson'. The film is based on a radio play from 2009 by Richard Nelson and tells the story of the first visit by a British monarch to the US and the true-to-life story of an affair Roosevelt had with a cousin. It all sounds very intriguing but I'm feeling wary that Bill Murray is right for the role.
We're used to seeing him in ridiculous comedies mainly and now he will star as a U.S President in what I take to be a very serious film. How do you think he will fare in this one?
