Bill Murray has arrived at South by Southwest, and approximately nobody is surprised (he’s done it before, you know -- multiple times).
He’s in town for multiple reasons -- the premiere of Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs” on Saturday night, a dedication at the Belo Center for New Media at the University of Texas Saturday afternoon and an appearance at the Long Center on Sunday night.
In true Bill Murray fashion, he also appeared on Sixth Street on Saturday evening and recited a poem while wearing overalls and a bucket hat (that sounds like some kind of SXSW Mad Libs), likely to promote his Long Center show at which he’ll be sharing stories and poetry. Anderson made an appearance, too:
