Drake Bell may think Lady Gaga is "repulsive," but the singer still has some very high-profile fans.

Bill Murray, for example, wasn't a scheduled guest on last night's Late Show with David Letterman, but that didn't stop the legendary comic from showing up, crossing a few items off his bucket list, and getting friendly with the Mother Monster.

Okay, so Murray and Gaga's time together may not have been a "date," exactly, but the two enjoyed each other's company on Letterman so much that while they were still filming, the 28-year-old singer asked the 63-year-old actor to escort her to her show at NYC's Roseland Ballroom just across the street.

No word yet on whether Gaga made good on her promise to "sing some songs" directly  to Murray and Letterman during her concert.

As for Bill's bucket list he managed to cross off both "meet Ms. Gaga" and "take a selfie" over the course of the night, so it's safe to say he can chalk the evening up as the latest in a lifetime of epic wins.

Bill Murray gave a brief but poignant shoutout to his old friend Harold Ramis while presenting the Academy Award for Best Cinematography Sunday night.

After announcing the nominees with Amy Adams, Murray added, "Oh, we forgot one: Harold Ramis for Caddyshack, Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day."

The audience roared in approval when the actor mentioned his late former colleague, who wrote all three of the aforementioned Murray comedy vehicles:

When the applause quieted, Murray apologized for stealing the moment, then handed the prize to the actual 2014 Oscar winner, Gravity's Emmanuel Lubezki.

Murray, 63, and Ramis were longtime friends and collaborators who came up in the Chicago comedy scene before heading off to Hollywood decades ago.

Harold Ramis died on February 24 at the age of 69.

Murray told Time of the beloved writer, actor and director who brought so many projects to life: "He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him."

Who you gonna call? Not Bill Murray. Ghostbusters 3 is being actively pursued by writer / star Dan Aykroyd, but his co-star does not want any part of it apparently.

The Ghostbusters retired ages ago, after a 1984 hit film, 1989 sequel, and two animated TV shows. But talk of another film has been rekindled of late.

In a webcast with Empire magazine, Dan Aykroyd implied he and co-star Rick Moranis were actively working to bring Ghostbusters 3 to theaters.

"If we can get the script to 'Ghostbusters 3' right, then it would definitely have Moranis as a major component," said Aykroyd of the potential project.

"None of us would want to do the movie without having him as a participant.”

He also responded to questions that another star, Bill Murray, wasn’t into the idea, denying reports that Murray actually shredded a potential script.

Murray also allegedly said “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts.” Replied Dan, “Bill Murray is not capable of such behavior."

What kind of frickin' moron drives a golf cart drunk off the course and onto the streets of town, then gets arrested for DUI?

The editor of this site. And Bill Murray.

THG NOTE: Our staff members do not condone drunk driving in golf carts. At the same time, gosh, that is some fun stuff!

Anyway. You could say that something was lost in translation when Bill Murray was nabbed by police while in Sweden while driving a golf cart drunk.

Actually, you couldn't. That's just us looking for a lame play on words to introduce a story involving Bill Murray driving drunk in a golf cart. Which is quite funny on its own, no?

"The cops asked me to come over and they assumed that I was drunk, and I explained to them that I was a golfer," the 56-year-old actor said.

The Lost in Translation and Caddyshack star said he was in Stockholm to play in a Pro-Am golf tournament when he hitched a ride to a post-event party in a golf cart. When no one wanted to drive home, Murray volunteered to play chauffeur.

Proof positive that drunken generosity will get you every time.

"I ended up stopping and dropping people off on the way like a bus. I had about six people in the thing and I dropped them off one at a time," he said.

Police pulled Murray over as he dropped off his last passengers at a 7-Eleven, he said, adding, "I didn't know they had 7-Elevens in Stockholm."

You know, neither did we.

Swedish police took a blood test after the actor refused a breath test. If tests show his blood alcohol level exceeded the legal limit - said to be very low in Sweden - he could face formal drunk driving charges. Make room in that cell, Nicole Richie!
