A Groundhog Day TV Show Is Apparently Being Developed, But Will Bill Murray Be Involved?

035a28926a91a0027767402623d193a526538ab5.png
All things considered, it would appear that the Groundhog Day TV show would be an extension of the film's world, where Stephen Tobolowsky portrayed the rather aggravating insurance agent Ned Ryerson. (A character that some have theorized is the actual string-puller behind Bill Murray's time loop as Phil Connors.) If Ned is back, that certainly leaves the door open for a return from Murray himself, even if the episodic project might not be wholly focused on Phil again. But could it happen? Source link

In 1995, the sport of volleyball turned 100, and that September, VBM published a special centennial collector’s edition of the magazine, featuring the top 100 people and events that had shaped the sport up until that point. Since 1995 many things have changed and new players, administrators, and coaches have burst onto the scene, but the people featured in that special edition magazine remain some of the most influential figures in the history

Why It Was So Important For Kumail Nanjiani To Get Jacked For His Marvel Role

Yeah, I did it for all my people. I'm ripped for Pakistan. It was very significant because it was something that I really, really wanted to do. Now on top of that, there's this other pressure in that I'm the first. But that stuff is a little harder to negotiate, because I can only represent myself. So, I do feel the pressure, but the only way to relieve it is just to have more people have these opportunities. I, one person, cannot represent a whole group of people because all of our experiences and backgrounds are completely different. That said,
