Too much partying with Letterman? On Tuesday, May 19, Bill Murray was David Letterman’s last guest on the Late Show. After popping out of a giant cake and leading a massive NYC crowd in a chant in honor of the retired late-night host, 68, the Ghostbusters star, 64, went out for a celebratory dinner.
Several glasses of wine in, Murray got an unexpected call to appear on MSNBC to discuss his final taping. He agreed and visited the studio, but when he arrived he went to sit down on a chair and toppled over onto the ground while the cameras were still rolling.
After the commercial break, Murray spoke with host Lawrence O’Donnell, slightly slurring his words.
“I just did the Letterman show, then went to dinner and had oysters, rose wine, red wine, and duck,” he told O’Donnell. They laughed off the incident and Murray then talked about paying tribute to Letterman.
“Well if you’ve been watching, you’ll see that there’s an amazing amount of power in the room,” the comedian said of his appearance.
Murray, who was Letterman’s first guest in 1982 made the final celebrity appearance, but Letterman’s last show is on Wednesday, May 20 on CBS.
