Bill Murray goes on a USO tour of Afghanistan in the upcoming comedy “Rock the Kasbah,” but for Monday night’s premiere the star and the rest of the cast stayed much closer to home.
The veteran comedian was joined by co-stars Kate Hudson, Bruce Willis and Zooey Deschanel for the New York premiere of the Open Road Films production held at the Loews Lincoln Square 13 theater in Manhattan.
While dodging car bombings and terrorists shooting guns, Lanz manages to find exactly what he is looking for, a woman with one of the best voices he’s ever heard.
While the movie features a fictional reality singing competition, real-life “American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez attended the premiere with on-again, off-again boyfriend Casper Smart, and rocker Fred Durst gave a grittier edge to the proceedings.
Later in the night, Murray hopped on stage to show off his own singing talents with the Chevy Chevis Band, who recently performed at his son Luke’s wedding, at the after party sponsored by HUDSON New York City and Belvedere Vodka.
“Rock the Kasbah” opens in theaters October 23.
