Bill Murray is going all in all P.F. Chang’s. He doesn’t just want to eat at the Asian fusion chain, he wants to work at their Atlanta airport location.
Murray, who just rose from the dead to appear in “Zombieland: Double Tap,” told Amy Schumer during an interview on her “3 Girls, One Keith” podcast that he was looking to work at the Chang’s location in Terminal A.
“I did fill out an application at P.F. Chang’s at the Atlanta Airport, because I think it’s one of the best places,” said Murray, 69. When Schumer was surprised, Murray continued, saying nonchalantly that the application was “just to work there.”

“It looks like they are having the best time working at P.F. Chang’s,” said Murray.
While Schumer didn’t press for any more details, annoyingly, the restaurant chain jumped on the news faster than you can yell, “Freeze, Gopher!” The official Chang’s Twitter broadcast the new hire, bypassing the normal interview procedure.
“Bill, you’re hired! When can you start?” the tweet said.
Murray might be onto something with the location, which has a 31/2 star rating on Yelp.
Yelp user Andrew S. of Elkhorn, Nebr. raved about it in a five-star review saying “the food arrived hot and very tasty” and warned other patrons (even before Bill Murray was working there!) to “get here early to assure a seat at this popular spot in the A terminal.”
Murray did go on to talk about his most satisfying acting experiences on the podcast. The actor loved his experience playing emotionally withdrawn Don Johnston Jim Jarmusch’s 2005 film “Broken Flowers” so much that it sent him on a journey to look for a new job.
“I thought I could not do better than that. I really felt that was the end. I thought ‘I’m done.’ I was kind of looking for anther career,” said Murray. “And nothing came up.”
