Bill Murray once applied for a job at an Asian restaurant – and they actually hired him

In what is just another day in the life of Bill Murray, the actor revealed how he applied for a job at a restaurant—and they hired him.

Murray, whose personality seems to have no bounds both on and off the screen, joined Amy Schumer as a guest on her 3 Girls, One Keith podcast in which he admitted to applying to work at Asian-themed restaurant P.F. Chang’s.

If you’re ever trying to find Bill Murray, he’ll either be gatecrashing engagement photos, giving impromptu speeches at bachelor parties or, in this case, working in the back of Atlanta Airport.

“I did fill out an application at P.F. Chang’s at the Atlanta Airport because I think it’s one of the best places,” Murray explained much to the surprise of Schumer. Clarifying this isn’t an acting gig, Murray explained his application was “just to work there”.

He added: “It looks like they are having the best time working at P.F. Chang’s.”

While his application wasn’t immediately picked up by the recruitment team of P.F. Chang’s, the social media side of the business were certainly quick enough to jump at the chance of working with Murray and took to social media to confirm the role: “Bill, you’re hired! When can you start?” they said.

Elsewhere in the show, Murray let slip of his guilty pleasure at home by revealing to Schumer and co-hosts Bridget Everett, Rachel Feinstein and Keith Robinson that he records television show Family Feud.

“I’m going to give you my little secret — I record it,” Murray said. “I can come home and I have recorded 61 episodes of ‘Family Feud,’ because it’s on all day long.

“It’s on all day long and by law it has to be on all day long. But then, what I do is I take the time to fast forward in each episode all the way to Fast Money. Cause that to me is the excitement part of the show. I skip the early rounds because I don’t always respect their tactics.”
