Murray was Stephen King's first choice for the lead role of Johnny Smith, a small-town schoolteacher with clairvoyant powers, in this 1983 movie adaption of King's novel.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT
Murray was under consideration for the role of Danny Martin, the restaurant-supply salesman played by Rob Lowe, in this 1986 big-screen adaption of David Mamet's play Sexual Perversity in Chicago. At various points in the development process, John Belushi and Nick Nolte were attached to costar Danny's friend Bernie Litgo. That part went to James Belushi, who had played it on stage. Negotiations with Murray apparently broke down after a disastrous meeting between Murray and Nolte in New York.

  12. I love Billy Murray but I don't think I could see him as the guy in Dead Zone..Christopher Walkens was awesome. I bet this is a fun book. :)

  13. I can't picture Bill Murray in a "serious" role. He's so funny, I only see him as a comedic actor.

    Happy 4th.:)

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
