Towson men’s basketball coach Pat Skerry completed his coaching staff a few weeks ago, but I just now discovered that one of his young assistants has a very famous father. Luke Murray, who was on Sean Miller’s staff in Arizona in 2009-10 and coached at Wagner College last season, is the son of actor Bill Murray. I’ve reached out to Luke Murray in the hopes he’ll chat about his father -- who starred in comedies such as “Caddyshack,” “Groundhog Day,” “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” and “Ghostbusters” -- but he talked about his relationship with his father and his early love of basketball with Yahoo!

Earlier this month, assistant coach Luke Murray was traveling with Towson University's basketball team, psyching himself up for a win, when he got a text message from his dad. "I think you guys should all go bowling," the text read. "I think all you guys as a team should just go bowling. " While not practical advice, it was true to the spirit of Luke's father, Bill. Yes, that Bill Murray, the almost surrealistically wry, one-of-a-kind comedian and actor. And it was not necessarily a bad or whimsical idea.

Garfield the comic strip stopped being funny about 10 years ago. Garfield the Movie makes it to about the 10-minute mark before tedium sets in. It's hard to think of a movie more dependent for its success on someone whose face is never seen. That would be Bill Murray, who provides the voice of self-centered fat cat Garfield, whose laziness is exceeded only by his ego. Getting Murray, in his best inveterate lounge-singer mode, to provide the voice is about the only inspired thing about this movie, and the novelty of that choice wears thin.

For the better part of a decade, Sister Nancy Murray has been performing onstage throughout the world in a one-woman play that tells the story of St. Catherine of Siena, a 14th-century Italian teenager who was instrumental in restoring the papacy to Rome and who remains, more than half a millennium after her death, one of her country's most prolific authors. And yet, it's hardly a role as a saint that piques people's curiosity most about Sister Nancy, at least at first blush. Saints are one thing, but what people really want to hear about is her brother Bill - Bill Murray, "Saturday Night Live" alumnus, Oscar-nominated actor, the guy who whispered something into Scarlett Johansson's ear in the movie "Lost in Translation" that people are still trying to figure out. Sister Nancy, speaking over the phone from her order's headquarters in southern Michigan, offers an easy laugh and a welcoming conversational style.

In the end credits of Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, there's an acknowledgement that Steve Zissou (played by Bill Murray) is a real person. No, it's not a joke. Though writer/director Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore) made the name up, the script clearance department at Buena Vista Pictures found a real Steve Zissou. This Zissou is a federal criminal trial lawyer based in Bayside, N.Y., not a burned-out underwater explorer. "When I found out it was part of the title, I was a little annoyed.

There are worse things than watching a second Garfield movie. I just can't think of them now. Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties is tedious almost beyond endurance, an exercise in diminishing returns that takes the minor pleasures of the first film (so minor that none of them comes to mind, either) and makes believe the public is desperately clamoring for more. They aren't, and this film explains why. Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (20th Century Fox) Starring Breckin Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, voice of Bill Murray.

3:30 p.m. [Comedy Central] Offbeat, quirky - that would be just a start to describe this comedy. It has Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Danny Glover, Bill Murray, and Owen and Luke Wilson (right). I won't even try to summarize the plot, but part of the story concerns Luke Wilson's Richie, a former tennis star who had to quit the game after having a breakdown in the middle of a big match. So, according to the "watch it" rules I just made up, that qualifies the movie for this space.

In the first episode of Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence, the former New York Times film critic interviews the late director Sydney Pollack and elicits the sort of practical yet also profound knowledge that found its way into Pollack movies such as Tootsie. If you missed Monday's airings, set your recording device to TCM for tomorrow noon. Pollack is the perfect guest to introduce a show called Under the Influence, because he understands how intricate and personal the idea of "influence" is. In a spirited give and take, he names An American in Paris as the first film he saw more than once.

In "Ghostbusters," he got to save the world and ended up with Sigourney Weaver.

It's a charmed life, and it's a heck of a lot of fun to watch.

Sometimes sly and witty, sometimes dull and forced, Coffee and Cigarettes is Jim Jarmusch's testimony to the difficulties and delights of communication. That they are difficulties neither coffee nor cigarettes can overcome makes the attempts no less fascinating to watch. Presented as a series of 11 vignettes filmed over the course of 15 years, their common thread the mass consumption of cigarettes and coffee, the movie gains most of its power from a steady stream of A-list personalities (Cate Banchett, Bill Murray, Steve Buscemi, Tom Waits)
