Could this be it!? Could this be the role that finally gets Bill Murray an Oscar???
He was nominated in 2003 for Lost In Translation, but couldn't secure a win. Now the actor is portraying Franklin D. Roosevelt in the upcoming release of Hyde Park On Hudson and we are VERY impressed by his thespian skillz!
Just as we predicted, Murray is pretty much FDR's reincarnation in the first trailer (above) for the Focus Features period piece and we're eager to see his entire performance!
Laura Linney co-stars alongside Murray as his distant cousin Margaret Stuckley during a weekend in 1939 when the King and Queen of the United Kingdom visited upstate New York.
