Seth Green Says Bill Murray Threw Him Into A Trash Can As A Kid

October 15, 2022 / Posted by:

In his older years, Bill Murray appears to be known for two things: starring in twee films that require him to be sad while wearing pastel sweaters and being a certified jerk. It seems like just a few years ago, Murray was becoming known as the cool old guy who might inadvertently stumble into your engagement photo shoot or crash your young people’s party. Who wouldn’t want the smarmy guy from Ghostbusters as a guest at your shindig? I suppose if you want to risk him getting assault-ey with the guests. And this week, Rob Schneider said that Bill Murray hated the early-90s Saturday Night Live cast when he guest hosted and really hated Chris Farley. Well, now Seth Green has his own SNL/Bill Murray story. According to Seth, Bill threw him into a trash can as a kid, and he isn’t laughing about it. The “I’m just a funny nice guy” act might not cut it after this. The movies have clearly told us that only bullies throw people into garbage cans!

Back in April, production on Aziz Ansari’s film Being Mortal was halted due to “inappropriate behavior” from Bill. It’s now been alleged that Bill has paid a $100,00 settlement to a female crew member for kissing and straddling the young woman. Apparently, if someone physically accosts you and you don’t like it, that’s just a “difference of opinion.” Since the release of this news, celebrities have come out of the woodwork to say that Bill Murray sucks. According to Deadline, Seth Green wants everyone to know that even if you’re a kid, Bill will not spare you.

Now, Seth Green has spoken for the first time about what he says was an altercation with Murray on the SNL set when he was nine and Murray, who was guest hosting, would have been in his early 30s. Green was set to play a kid in a skit. He was sitting backstage watching TV when he says Murray “saw me sitting on the arm of this chair and made a big fuss about me being in his seat. And I was like, ‘That is absurd. I am sitting on the arm of this couch. There are several lengths of this sofa. Kindly eff off.’ And he was like, ‘That’s my chair.’”

Green says he refused.

“He picked me up by my ankles,” said Green of Murray, “held me upside down…dangled me over a trash can and he was like, ‘The trash goes in the trash can.’ And I was screaming, and I swung my arms, flailed wildly, full contact with his balls. He dropped me in the trash can [and] the trash can falls over. I was horrified. I ran away, hid under the table in my dressing room and just cried.”

Seth spills his truth at the 15:50 mark:

Looks like Chevy Chase wasn’t the only asshole of classic Saturday Night Live. Other celebrities who have commented on the movie star’s behavior are Geena Davis, who wrote in her recently released memoir that on the set of Quick Change, Bill kept trying to use a massage machine on her and screamed at her in front of “more than 300 people.” And, of course, there’s Lucy Liu who had a very difficult time with Murray on the set of Charlie’s Angels. It should also be said that he supposedly headbutted the director, so Bill really brought the drama to that set. I guess when you have starred in movies such as Osmosis Jones, the fame goes straight to your head, and you think you can do whatever you want. Now, these are just a few of the threads in the rich tapestry of Bill’s film career as a difficult actor. Seeing as he still gets cast in million-dollar productions despite his reputation, I believe we can expect more tales of Bill Murray terrorizing his co-workers for years to come!
