George Clooney, Bill Murray, A Very Murray Christmas


George Clooney is here to help you get in the holiday spirit in a very unlikely way: by singing with Bill Murray.

The Oscar winner appears in Murray's Netflix special, A Very Murray Christmas, as himself and gets in on the yuletide fun with "Santa Wants Some Loving." Plus Paul Schaffer is there too!

The plot of A Very Murray Christmas is a simple and familiar one: Bill Murray is hosting a holiday special at New York City's Carlyle, but a blizzard has other plans. Murray then celebrates the holidays with hotel employees, celebrities and anybody else who takes refuge in the hotel. In addition to Clooney, Schaffer and Murray, the cast also includes Maya Rudolph, Miley Cyrus, Julie White, Chris Rock, Amy Poehler, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman.

Clooney previously revealed he's not a fan of his own singing.

"Here's the thing, when I did O Brother, Where Art Thou? I went into a recording studio and T-Bone Burnett and Joel and Ethan [Coen] assumed that because I was Rosemary's [Clooney] nephew that I would be a great singer, and I kind of assumed that, too," he said in 2014. "Then we got into the recording studio and I sang "Man of Constant Sorrow" with all the music playing and I finished and looked up and there's that glass booth with all of them in it and no one would look me in the eye. Then they played it back and it was pretty bad. It was so bad that I made them destroy it."

What do you think of Clooney's pipes?

A Very Murray Christmas is streaming on Netflix now.
