Bill Murray proved at a birthday party Saturday night that he is the gift that keeps on giving.

The iconic actor who has a knack for making hilarious appearances at unexpected places attended a birthday party for himself and the party's host at a rural Jedburg home Saturday night.

Charleston Chef Brett McKee, who catered the event, took pictures and video of his long-time friend playing air guitar to "8675309/Jenny" and grinding to "Turn Down for What" and posted them on his Facebook page.

"He doesn't care," McKee said. "To him, he's just a regular dude."


Marvin Larry Reynolds, who was celebrating his birthday, and his wife Julie invited Murray to attend the party and celebrate his own birthday. Murray, who turns 64 Friday, drove out to Jedburg, danced and talked casually with party-goers.

"I don't think there's anyone today in Hollywood who would do that for someone," McKee said.

Murray also got a little special treatment. During his three hours there, he opened presents from guests and blew out candles on two cakes.

"Actors like to be normal people too," Julie Reynolds said. "They don't do things all the time to get attention. They do it because they are human and they have lives to live like we all do. And birthdays to be celebrated."

Murray owns a home in the Charleston area and is part-owner of the minor league baseball team Charleston RiverDogs. Every now and then he pops up in a couple's engagement photo, or giving advice at a bachelor party or hanging out at a College of Charleston basketball game.
