Bill Murray - Bill Murray Fled Berlin For Overnight Trip To Prague

Actor Bill Murray made the most of a recent promotional visit to Germany by taking a lightning overnight trip to neighbouring Czech Republic.

The Groundhog Day star headed to Europe for the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this month (Feb14) in support of his new movie The Monuments Men.

He was desperate to visit Prague, so he made a quick late-night trip to the Czech capital and stunned his co-stars by arriving back in Berlin in time for his promo duties the following day.

Matt Damon, who stars alongside Murray in the World War Ii drama, tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "He is so cool. We were due to have a cast dinner and Bill walks up and says, 'I might miss dinner tonight,' and I'm like, 'Are you not feeling well?' and he says, 'No, I'm going to go to Prague.'

"I said, 'It's five hours away by train, you're going to get there at midnight, and he was like, 'Yeah, but I've never been there.' He was back for nine the following morning, spot on time for the press!"
