'St Vincent' could provide Bill Murray (right) with his second ever Oscar nomination.
The Ghostbusters actor will play an unlikely babysitter in a new movie.
The trailer for the new comedy St Vincent has hit the internet, showing Bill Murray in the role of a misanthropic, alcoholic war veteran who takes a young boy under his wing.
Arriving in US theatres on Oct 24, the new comedy could prove to be a contender for the Oscars, with the potential to propel Murray to his second ever nomination. So far, the actor’s only Academy Award nomination was for his role in the 2003 film Lost In Translation.
In St Vincent, Murray plays a broke, alcoholic war veteran with a taste for hookers and horse races. In an unlikely turn of events, the character becomes a friend and babysitter to a young boy whose parents are divorced.
The cast also includes Melissa McCarthy (The Heat) in the role of the boy’s mother, Naomi Watts as a Russian stripper and friend to Murray’s character, and Chris O’Dowd (Thor: The Dark World) as a priest at the boy’s Catholic school. — AFP Relaxnews
