Bobcat Goldthwait Bore The Brunt Of
Bill Murray's Improv On Scrooged
In a 2018 career retrospective for Yahoo!, Bobcat Goldthwait his work in "Scrooged,” and what it was like co-starring with Bill Murray. While he was thrilled to work with a comedic giant like Murray, there was one improvised moment during filming that scared the dickens out of him.
Recalling a scene that got unexpectedly physical, Goldthwait explained, "I remember there was an ad-libbed scene where he twirled me around and then lets me go; I go flying. But when I went flying, my head hit the back of the elevator, and I passed out briefly!”
Thankfully, Goldthwait has a sense of humor about the incident, stating, “When I came to, I thought 'I've got to let them know I'm OK,' but they were already walking away from me going, 'That's the one, Bill — you killed it.' And meanwhile, I'm like, '#12 on the call sheet is fine everyone. Don't worry about me.'"
