Smell a Bill Murray Oscar in New ‘Hyde Park on Hudson’ Pics

Bill Murray, one of the the greatest comedians and dramatists of our time, is finally accepting a role worthy of his regality: Franklin Delano Roosevelt (not that Carl Spackler wasn’t pretty glorious…but this is better). New images of Murray in Hyde Park on Hudson, the Roger Michell film that stars Murray as our 32nd president, are now available. Beside Murray, we can see cast members Olivia Williams (as Eleanor Roosevelt), Laura Linney (as Margaret Stuckley) and Olivia Colman (Queen Elizabeth.

All these in addition to the previous, very Rooseveltian image, make for some hefty anticipation of this historical drama.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
