Bill Murray's career took a major nosedive on Friday — from 13,500 feet up.
The 57-year-old star of Lost in Translation and Ghostbusters strapped on a parachute and jumped out of an airplane to help kickoff the 50th Chicago Air and Water Show. (Hey, after the nasty divorce he just went through, who wouldn't want to throw himself out of a plane??)
"It seemed like a good idea at a time," said the Chicago native, who played air guitar during his freefall. "I've had second thoughts, believe me. I've been really nervous. All the jokes (from friends) involve death."
