Actor Bill Murray Turns Entrepreneur, Teams With Pebble Beach; Says ‘Don’t Go Crazy, It’s Not Like the JLo Line’
The ‘Ghostbusters’ Actor Bill Murray is now an entrepreneur with his new golf-centered clothing line. Being a permanent fixture at golf’s Pebble Beach Pro-Am for past 25 years, it is not a surprise that the actor chose the Pebble Beach Company as its first retailer. The comedian is enthusiastic about his new fashion line, but says there is nothing to write home about. “Let’s not get too serious about this,” Murray told “Squawk Box.” “It’s not like the JLo line.” He got the idea from his friends who helped the star track down a group making t-shirts with Murray’s face on them and that is how the “William Murray Golf” clothing line started. It has polo shirts, button-downs, shorts and hats. Speaking from the Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament, Murray wore a pair of his line’s overalls, detailed with the Murray family tartan.
Five months ago, Murray had launched a golf apparel and lifestyle brand with the intent to bring more fun to the game of golf.
“All you housewives out there, I’m sure when you say, ‘God, I just don’t have a good pair of overalls, what could I look good in?’ This is like a maternity set of overalls that I wear.” Bill added his dash of humor to it.
“You know, it’s kind of passive. I don’t have to do so much. Occasionally, I chip in with an idea or something like that,” he said.
