Bill Murray Can Adapt To Any Role — Including These 13 Famous Paintings.

Bill Murray is a face millions have known and loved for decades – and, apparently, one that fits in perfectly anywhere!


Artist Eddy Torigoe Pellot made that observation when he saw a photo of the actor and noticed an uncanny resemblance to George Washington’s portrait. That’s what inspired him to spread laughter by inserting his face into iconic paintings!

“I downloaded the Washington portrait and the image I saw of Bill and photoshopped them, and it was startling how well they matched up,” he told Digg. “Then it occurred to me to look for other images of Bill that would fit some other famous paintings.”
