Wes Anderson Inspired Art Has Bill Murray Playing Everyone

Because of his incredibly high ranking on the "Awesome" scale, Bill Murray has had the luxury in recent years to act in only movies that he really wants to be in. Luckily for us, a good number of those films have been for director Wes Anderson, playing roles in every one of his films since starring in Rushmore back in 1998 (though his Darjeeling Limited role was criminally short). Apparently, however, artist Casey Weldon wasn't satisfied seeing Murray only playing characters like Herman Blume, Raleigh St. Clair, and Steve Zissou. So he decided to start replacing the other actors.

On Weldon's personal blog he has posted six prints of what Bill Murray would look like if he played Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) in Rushmore, Chas, Margot and Ritchie Tenenbaum (Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Luke Wilson) in The Royal Tenenbaums, Anne-Marie (Robyn Cohen) in The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, and Francis (Owen Wilson) in The Darjeeling Limited. The prints were designed for an exhibit called Bad Dads which will be on display at the Lopo gallery in San Francisco. All of the art shown at the exhibit will be inspired by Anderson's films.

You can check out three of the prints below and see the rest over at Weldon's website. They're admittedly kind of creepy, but also pretty damn cool. Check out the images below.
