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.:)

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
