Bill Murray Tells Charlie Rose About the Oscar Speech He Would Have Given

BillMurrayCharlieRoseLast night’s full-hour conversation on Charlie Rose was as entertaining and memorable as we expected.

The first classic moment occurred about ten minutes in, when Rose observed that his guest’s trajectory seemed to have been “not a carefully thought out, well-planned life.” Murray was genuinely gassed by the observation, laughing heartily and deadpanning that no one has ever been quite this compassionate towards him.

A little later, the actor explained that because of his sons’ lives, he currently makes his home in South Carolina. Though he didn’t choose to relocate there, the actor explained, he now loves it. “The people are kind, the place is beautiful. It’s easier than being a parent in New York; being a parent there was quite a bit harder.”

FBI Now Investigating News International

Yesterday News International settled with a whopping 37 phone hacking victims, but only one of them — the dashing, scarf-wearing Jude Law — is causing them a big headache.

According to the Telegraph, Law said that News International admitted to hacking his voicemail for a story in 2003. The information contained in the article might have been accessed through conversations Law had with his assistant, who had recently landed at JFK airport. If Law’s phone was operating on a stateside network, the hacking could be punishable under U.S. law.

“We aware of the allegations surrounding this matter and are looking into it,” a FBI spokesperson told The Telegraph.

Angelina Jolie’s Esquire Profile ‘Worst Ever’? Not That Bad, Actually

Over at Slate, Ron Rosenbaum went all medieval on a Tom Junod-penned profile of Angelina Jolie in Esquire and panned it as the worst celebrity profile ever written. Interestingly, Rosenbaum didn’t mention Junod’s name in the piece once. Junod is a respected writer whose profiles of Mr. Rogers and Mike Tyson have become standard fare for college journalism classes, and he’s written about everything from Ecuadorian kidnappings to iconic 9/11 photographs. Then again, he’s also responsible for a puff piece or two. But the challenging thing is that in Rosenbaum’s screed, he treats Junow’s article like something special. He namedrops Yale University in calling it a “fallacy of imitative form” and calls the Jolie profile the worst out of “a wasteland of celebrity profiles.”

The wasteland part we can see. But the worst?
