Biography

The older brother of superstar Bill Murray, Brian Doyle-Murray never attained his sibling's level of recognition, but worked regularly for decades as a dependable comic performer, writer, and voice artist in movies and on television. A veteran of the Chicago Second City company and the "National Lampoon Radio Hour," Doyle-Murray honed his writing talents on SCTV (syndicated/NBC/Cinemax, 1976-1984) and the late night juggernaut "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ). His excellent timing and gruff voice made him an ideal comic antagonist and he almost invariably played characters that ran the gamut from brusque to downright obnoxious in a series of hit comedies, including "Caddyshack" (1980), which he co-wrote, "National Lampoon's Vacation" (1983), "Scrooged" (1988), "Ghostbusters II" (1989), "Groundhog Day" (1993), and "Multiplicity" (1996). He was also frequently tapped for guest roles on a wide variety of television sitcoms and was a regular on others that never quite caught on, like Chris Elliott's cult favorite "Get a Life" (Fox, 1990-92). Children also came to know Doyle-Murray from his many voice artist stints on animated programs, particularly his memorable interpretation of the ghostly Flying Dutchman on the long-running "SpongeBob SquarePants" (Nickelodeon, 1999- ). While doomed to remain in the shadow of his hugely successful sibling, Doyle-Murray regularly distinguished himself with a series of second banana roles that benefitted greatly from his professionalism and the terrific comic training he had honed on the Second City stage.
