Bill Murray to Turn Off Bill Murray to Voice Baloo in The Jungle Book

Bill Murray, who just can't stop being Bill Murray god bless his heart, will be taking a break from playing the greatest role of his life (himself) in order to voice Baloo, the lovable bear in the live-action remake of Disney's The Jungle Book.

Deadline reports that Murray will be voicing the bear alongside Ben Kingsley's Bagheera, Christopher Walken's King Louie, Lupita Nyong'o's Raksha, and Idris Elba's Shere Khan, as well as some others. The Jon Favreau-directed film is expected to release in October of 2015 with ten-year-old Neel Sethi playing Mowgli, the only actor to appear among CGI characters.

Unless that good ole Bill Murray has something wacky up his sleeve like a walk-on cameo by actor Bill Murray.
