It’s the most amazing Murray-Depp connection of all time (unless Tim Burton remakes Ghostbusters).
#2. Bill Murray as Hunter S. Thompson, 18 Years Before Johnny Depp
Hunter S. Thompson is one of the most influential people in both journalism and the field of doing your job while high as all fuck, but let’s face it: When most people hear his name today, they automatically think of Johnny Depp’s portrayal in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
However, Depp wasn’t the first person to play Hunter S. Thompson on screen. Nope, that honor belongs to Bill Murray, who portrayed Thompson in a 1980 biopic called Where the Buffalo Roam.
