He’s got this going for him, which is nice.
Actor and living internet meme Bill Murray led a group of writers, poets, and verse lovers in the 20th annual Poetry Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge on Monday.
The “Ghostbusters” and “Ghostbusters II” star is a fixture at the yearly stroll, and was joined this year by Brooklyn’s poet laureate Tina Chang, along with fellow bards Cornelius Eady, Edward Hirsch, Laura Kasischke, Thomas Lux, and Ocean Vuong.
Once the group had traversed the bridge, Richard Blanco, who is best known as the inaugural poet at President Obama’s second inauguration, gave the traditional reading of Walt Whitman’s “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Poetry fans paid $250 a pop to take part in the event, which raises cash for Poets House, a poetry library on the distant island of Manhattan
