Which actor played weatherman Phil Connors in the 1993 comedy movie Groundhog Day?



Bill Murray




Answer: Groundhog Day is a 1993 comedy film starring Bill Murray. Murray plays Phil Connors, an arrogant Pittsburgh TV weatherman who, during an assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, finds himself caught in a time loop, repeating the same day again and again.




Director Harold Ramis considered Tom Hanks, Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, and John Travolta for the role of Phil Connors, but he thought they were all “far too nice” compared to Murray and Michael Keaton, who reportedly turned it down.
