Amy Poehler, George Clooney, and Maya Rudolph Join Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola’s Christmas Special

poehler_rudolph_bronxLast year it was announced that Bill Murray was teaming up with Sofia Coppola for an upcoming Christmas TV special, and today THR reports that the project just added a few big stars. According to the report, George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Miley Cyrus will play versions of themselves in the special, which will follow the famously agent-less Murray as “he evades the advances of a shark dying to sign him.” The project hasn’t officially found a distributor yet, but it already sounds like the weirdest holiday special ever. Coppola told Variety in October that it won’t be live and will be “like a little movie. It won’t have a format, but it’s going to have music. It will have texture. It will have threads through it that are writing. There will be prose. It will have a patina style and wit to it. It will be nice. Not sure when it will air, but my motivation is to hear him singing my song requests.”
