Bill Murray 'Disappointed' at 'Garfield'

July 20, 2010 05:03:36 GMT


Funnyman Bill Murray regrets lending his voice to animated film "Garfield" to work with his idol, comedy writer Joel Coen - because he realized too late the part was written by a different Joel Cohen. The actor admits he jumped at the chance to play the fat cat in the 2004 live-action film, loosely based on the Jim Davis comic strip "Garfield" - when he thought one half of the Oscar-winning Coen brothers filmmaking duo was attached to the script.

But he didn't realize until it was too late that another writer with a similar name had actually worked on the screenplay - and it wasn't funny. Murray tells America's GQ magazine, "I thought it would be kind of fun, because doing a voice is challenging, and I'd never done that. Plus, I looked at the script, and it said, 'So-and-so and Joel Cohen.' And I thought: 'Christ, well, I love those Coens!' They're funny. So I sorta read a few pages of it and thought, 'Yeah, I'd like to do that'."

DirectTV Takes the Risk of Reviving 'Damages'

July 20, 2010 03:03:20 GMT


Fans of FX network can rejoice at the thought of "Damages" being saved from death. DirecTV has ordered two seasons of 10 episodes each and they will go into production early next year for a Summer 2012 premiere. The first three seasons meanwhile, will be re-airing starting next summer.

After three seasons and several Emmys, FX decided not to renew the show because the rating has been a challenge for the network. Last season the show averaged about 1.4 million viewers while the production of an episode alone could cost around $2 million. The equation came to a result which is not profitable for FX which actually has bigger subscribers than Direct TV's 101 Network. A source close to the show tipped Glenn Close and some of the cast are not taking pay cuts under the new deal.
