BIOGRAPHY:

Bill is the fifth of nine children born to Edward and Lucille Murray. He and most of his siblings worked as caddies, which paid his tuition to Loyola Academy, a Jesuit school. He played sports and did some acting while in that school, but in his words, mostly "screwed off." He enrolled at Regis College in Denver to study pre-med but dropped out after being arrested for marijuana possession. He then joined the National Lampoon Radio Hour with fellow members Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, and John Belushi. However, while those three became the original members of "Saturday Night Live" (1975), he joined "Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell" (1975), which premiered that same year. After that show failed, he later got the opportunity to join "Saturday Night Live" (1975).


TRIVIA:
  • Was considered for the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the 1989 _Batman (1989)_ (qv) film when it was set to be identical to the 1960s TV Series before 'Tim Burton (I)' (qv) came along.
  • Father, with 'Jennifer Butler (I)' (qv), of sons Jackson (b. 1993), Cal (b. 1995) and Cooper (b. 1996) and Lincoln (b. 2001).
  • The part of Boon in National Lampoon's _Animal House (1978)_ (qv) was originally written with him in mind, but due to a scheduling conflict, he had to turn it down.
  • In 2001, he starred with 'Sigourney Weaver' (qv) in an Off-Off-Broadway play called "The Guys," in which he played a fire captain who lost eight of his men on 9/11. In the movie version, Murray's role was played by 'Anthony LaPaglia' (qv).
  • Married his first wife, 'Mickey Kelley' (qv) in Las Vegas on Super Bowl Sunday of 1981. They had a second ceremony at a church on March 25, 1981.
  • Voiced Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in an early Fantastic Four radio show.
  • He owns a minor league baseball team in Charleston, SC, called the Riverdogs.
  • He is a diehard Chicago Cubs fan. During the Cubs playoff run in 2003, he was on location in Italy, but he had it written into his contract that he'd get a satellite feed of the playoffs.
