Bill Murray says he applied for a job at P.F. Chang's
Bill Murray's had a lot of different jobs over the years. He's been a groundskeeper ("Caddyshack"), a weatherman ("Groundhog Day") and even a zombie ("Zombieland") — but he recently admitted another career he's had his eye on.
The comedian was a guest on Amy Schumer's podcast, "3 Girls 1 Keith," on Tuesday, during which he discussed the types of jobs he'd want to pursue outside of acting. That's when Murray announced his desire to work for a popular restaurant chain — a desire he's apparently acted on before.
"I did fill out an application at P.F. Chang's at the Atlanta airport because I think that's one of the great places," Murray told Schumer.
"To do what? Just any job?" Schumer asked. Murray clarified her point, saying his supposed application was "just to work there."
The 69-year old went on to explain his love for the Asian-themed chain, which has more than 300 locations worldwide.
"It looks like they are having the best time working at P.F. Chang's," Murray said.
Schumer didn't press Murray any further, so it's unclear why he specifically targeted the restaurant's Atlanta airport outpost. But, as USA Today points out, he might be onto something: The Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport location has a 3.5-star rating on Yelp.
"I definitely will make this a regular stop on my trips through ATL and you won't be sorry if you do too," one customer wrote in a review Murray seemingly would agree with.
Murray never said whether he heard back about the job, but that doesn't seem to be an issue any longer. P.F. Chang's issued a response to the news Tuesday afternoon, inviting the actor to join their team.
"Bill, you're hired! When can you start?" P.F. Chang's tweeted.
Murray, who is set to appear in "Ghostbusters 2020" next year, went on to discuss a wide range of topics, including his love of "Family Feud" and the time he hung out with the Wu Tang Clan.
"I took them for lunch that day and they'd never had sake," Murray said of hanging out with the rap group on the set of "Coffee and Cigarettes." "So I proceeded to buy a big bottle. So they drank a lot of sake and came back drunk."
