Bill Murray is notable for quite a few things – Ghostbusters;his secret 1-800 phone number that people had to call to pitch work; his love of gate crashing parties; and, until now that is, his lack of a mobile phone.
However, modern technology catches up on us all, it seems. Murray has finally invested in a smartphone and it’s a BlackBerry, according to Variety. No word on whether he picked himself up a smartphone or feature phone, but maybe we’ll see him snapping selfies the next time he gate crashes an event.
He told the New York Post’s Page Six that he got the phone so that he could talk with his kids. He said, “I got it to communicate with my sons, because they will not answer a phone call, but they will answer a text.”
We’re sure that Murray’s phone number will be tricky to get a hold of. It’s unknown if he will take business calls on this new phone or if he’ll stick with his tried and tested 1-800 number method.
