Catch Bill Murray on American Chopper

Bill Murray is to team up with the Teutul family at Orange County Choppers to create a custom Caddyshack themed motorcyle in two episodes of the Discovery Channel’s American Chopper, the first episode airing this week.

The bike, which was auctioned off at Murray’s celebrity golf tournament, was designed to look like something that Caddyshack’s Carl Spackler might scoot around in. Of the bike, Bill said, “It was like it was (Carl’s) motorcycle, so it had a little bit of army surplus, a little bit of army ordinance and a little bit of greenskeeper. It was fun. I got to lift something every once in a while.”

It sounds as if the two-parter might be a bit different than normal “celebrity bike” episodes, (OCC has constructed bikes for Jay Leno, Billy Joel, Will Smith, and Lance Armstrong) as Bill said that he spent several days working at the shop with the boys. Typically the celebrities will make brief appearances in the beginning of the first episode and the end of the second to view the final product. So there’s potential here for some good moments in a show that has fallen off a bit in the past two seasons. With Bill getting his hands a bit dirty, you can only hope that he’ll be around to bear witness, hopefully add commentary, to a classic blowup between Paul Teutul Jr. and Sr., as past arguments provide such voyeuristic viewing thrills as doors being knocked down, and available objects being thrown or smashed. (Video evidence.) Not unlike Jackass, without the assholes. The first episode airs tonight at 10pm ET/PT, with the second airing next Monday. If you miss the airings, consult here for the rerun schedule.

    Skype has launched its website-centered buyer beta towards the
    world, following introducing it extensively within the United states and U.K.
    previous this 30 days. Skype for Website also now works with Chromebook and Linux
    for instant messaging communication (no video
    and voice but, these need a plug-in installing).

    The expansion of the beta provides support for a longer set of languages to help bolster that global
    functionality
