At this week's Berlin Film Festival, Wes Anderson and a strong ensemble cast including Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray and Edward Norton premiered their new film The Grand Budapest Hotel, a caper set in a fictional spa town in pre-World War II Europe.
Asked by a reporter how Anderson get stars to play not-so-big roles, the Anderson regular Murray ? who plays a concierge in the film ? leapt in to answer the question.
“We are promised very long hours and low wages ? and stale bread,” he said.
“That’s pretty much it.”
