WASHINGTON

A young American’s bachelor party got the unexpected gift of sage advice from a last-minute guest: deadpan comic actor Bill Murray.  Murray, who lives in Charleston, South Carolina, was dining with friends in the city over the weekend when a member of a separate group at the restaurant spontaneously invited the award-winning actor to say something to the soon-to-be groom. After first declining, a local newspaper reported, Murray - star of films such as ‘Caddyshack’ and ‘Lost in Translation’ - obliged with some smiles for the groom, whom he did not know. ‘You know how they say funerals are for the dead, not for the living?’ Murray asked on video obtained by deadspin.com.
