Zombieland[]

Zombill

Bill Murray portrays himself in a single scene in the zombie comedy film Zombieland. When Columbus and his group arrive in Hollywood on their way to Pacific Playland, they take shelter in Bill Murray's mansion, believing it to be abandoned. While Columbus and Little Rock watch Ghostbusters in Murray's home theater, Murray himself appears before Tallahassee and Wichita in the lounge, made-up as a zombie. Thinking him to be a real zombie, Wichita hits Bill in the back with a golf club, but realizes her error when he yells and curses.

Bill seems to have adjusted well to the zombie apocalypse, trying to maintain an active lifestyle by going out and enjoying himself while disguised as a zombie (which actually works in keeping them away). After Tallahassee and Wichita introduce themselves to Bill and befriend him, they all decide to play a practical joke on Columbus by having Bill sneak up behind him in full zombie make-up. This turns out to be a terrible idea as Columbus grabs his shotgun and shoots Bill in the chest. Before dying, Bill admits he was never a very good prankster and also confesses his one regret in life: his role in the film Garfield.
