Zombieland[edit | edit source]
Bill Murray played a fictionalized version of himself in the 2009 horror/comedy Zombieland. He lived in a palatial mansion in Beverly Hills, and one was one of the few lucky ones to survive the zombie apocalypse. A small group of survivors who went by the nicknames of Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock came to Chéz Murray seeking shelter. They were extremely surprised to see that the venerated actor was still alive. Tallahassee in particular was a huge fan of Mister Murray's film career and they even played around with some mock costumes and props to imitate scenes from Ghostbusters.
Murray and Tallahassee decided to play a prank on Columbus by disguising Murray up as a zombie to scare him. The prank worked only too well. When Columbus saw Bill, he immediately shot him with his shotgun. Murray sustained a fatal injury from the shot and admitted that he was not very good at pranks. When asked if he had any regrets, Murray said, "Maybe Garfield", and then expired.
