Bill MurrayAt the height of 'Groundhog Day,' Bill Murray's character, convinced he's immortal, wearily proclaims, "I'm a god. I'm not THE God ... I don't think."

Though Murray's fans may dispute that statement, it's no question that the actor's varied career has now reached near-legendary status. In his new movie 'Get Low,' he plays another character with particular insight into matters of life and death: funeral home director Frank Quinn, who's called into action when ornery hermit Felix Bush (Robert Duvall) wants to plan his own funeral party -- while he's still alive.

Having already played at Toronto and Sundance, 'Get Low' rolled into the Tribeca Film Festival on a wave of great buzz for Duvall, Sissy Spacek and, of course, Murray himself. In town for the fest, he shared stories about Hunter S. Thompson's funeral, his favorite New York City movie (rhymes with 'Mostbusters,' natch), and all those rumors about 'Ghostbusters 3' -- all before demonstrating how to practice Egoscue, his new stretching/exercise regimen of choice. But that's a story for another day.
