The Monuments Men VIDEO: Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban

True: It is very intimidating sitting in a room with three of the greatest and funniest actors working today. Bob Balaban is the stone-faced and stirringly intelligent man from the bulk of Christopher Guest’s movies and director of the cult hit Parents. John Goodman was last seen in The Coen Bros.’ Inside Llewyn Davis, and has appeared in the bulk of their films, as well as many others that I don’t need to mention. And Bill Murray, well, he’s something of a legend in both the comedy world and the indie film world. 

Luckily, all three men were talkative and gregarious about their roles in George Clooney’s The Monuments Men (in theaters February 7th). They sat briefly with CraveOnline‘s Witney Seibold to discuss the tone of the film, their respective roles, and all generally be laidback, cool  customers. Just having them next to each other was an awesome sight. And Murray’s outfit might have been cooler than Witney’s.
