Bill Murray Took a Nap Onstage at the SXSW Premiere of 'Isle of Dogs'
Published Mar 19, 2018Bill Murray is just one of the familiar faces (well, technically voices) set to appear in Wes Anderson's latest stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs, and it seems he's still going method for the role — opting to "sit" and "play dead" rather than "play ball" at the SXSW premiere of the film this past weekend.
On Saturday (March 17), Murray prefaced the Austin screening with a dramatic reading of a poem about dogs, accompanied by a cellist. He seemed decidedly less enthusiastic, though, during the post-show Q&A.
Murray appeared onstage alongside Anderson and fellow cast members to field audience questions, but he totally nodded off during some of Anderson's answers.

Isle of Dogs is due out on March 23.
