LOST IN TRANSLATION star Bill Murray has joined Brad Pitt on the small list
of stars who have turned down the chance to appear on indepth American chat
show INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO.
The revered show, hosted by James Lipton, has featured the best actors
working today - talking about their craft and their lives - but Murray has no
wish to appear.
He says, "I met that guy (Lipton) a while ago and he said, `You're never
gonna do the show, are you?' I guess I've been invited before, but I always had
a problem with it being called Inside The Actors Studio.
"It always bothered me. And when he called the show Inside The Actors
Studio - well, what are you talking to Meg Ryan for, or any number of these
people they've got now who couldn't find the Actors Studio with a phone
Pitt recently announced he had been approached to appear on the show but
turned the opportunity down because he didn't think he was experienced enough.
