Bill Murray talks the Fox

From ComingSoon.net:

Q: What is your role in Wes Anderson’s upcoming animated “Fantastic Mr. Fox”?

Murray: I’ll be playing the badger.

Q: What is your badger voice?

Murray: Unfortunately, my badger… I worked really, really hard on a Wisconsin accent, ’cause I thought that would be an appropriate badger voice. And for the first couple scenes I did this Wisconsin badger voice that I thought was so funny. I did the first couple scenes and then Wes goes, “Nah, I don’t think so. I would think it’s kind of a Savile Row badger.” Who here has seen a badger walkin’ down Savile Row? Anybody? (Laughter) Yeah. That’s what I said. But these are these new directors. You know, you just gotta give ‘em their… you know, let ‘em hang themselves. I’ve seen some pictures of it. I think it’s old-fashioned ’cause it’s taking ‘em a very long time to get it done, but they’re very excited (complete interview).

  1. This is a lovely blog, if you want a taste of the luxury of Savile Row, you should visit Anderson and Sheppard. The site is amazing, the photo’s are beautiful, you get a real feel of the real quality you will get from a Savile Row Tailor.
