TIFF RED CARPET: Bill Murray wears candy for Hyde Park on Hudson

TIFF RED CARPET: Bill Murray wears candy for Hyde Park on Hudson

It’s pretty much a given that anything involving Bill Murray—onscreen but especially off—is going to be awesome. But we were floored by the former Ghostbuster’s accessorizing abilities on the red carpet. In lieu of a pocket square, the actor filled his suit pocket with red licorice (which is both convenient and colourful) for the premiere of Hyde Park on Hudson. Murray plays Franklin Delano Roosevelt in a film that traces the president’s fling with his distant cousin and eventual mistress Margaret Suckley over a weekend in 1939. Laura Linney, who plays Suckley, rocked a black and navy ensemble with a modest peplum. Also on hand were producer Kevin Loader, director Roger Michell and screenwriter Richard Nelson. The other adventurous accessory on the carpet belonged to Olivia Williams, who plays Eleanor Roosevelt in the historical film: her fiery red dress was topped with a big, black boa (sadly, no candy was involved).
