Seth Green Says Bill Murray ‘Picked Me Up By My Ankles’ and ‘Dropped Me In The Trash’ At Age 9

Seth Green has spoken out against Bill Murray, accusing him of inappropriate behavior when Green was just a child. The “Austin Powers” actor said on the “Good Mythical Morning” YouTube show that when he was 9 years old, he had a physical altercation with Murrah that left him “horrified” and crying.

  1. The incident allegedly took place backstage at “Saturday Night Live.” Green said on the show that when he was 9, he did a guest spot on the sketch comedy series with Mary Gross, one of the co-anchors on the news segment. “She did a whole thing about what kids think about the Christmas holiday,” he recalled. Seth Green recalls Bill Murray being the host for that episode.
  2. Green watched TV in the green room when he wasn’t on camera. That’s when he claims to have been assaulted by Murray. “[Murray] saw me sitting on the arm of this chair and made a big fuss about me being in his seat. And I was like, ‘That is absurd. I am sitting on the arm of this couch. There are several lengths of this sofa. Kindly eff off.’ And he was like, ‘That’s my chair,'” Green recalled. Green’s mother suggested her son move so Murray could sit there, but the young actor refused.
  3. Bill Murray was not happy that Seth Green didn’t do exactly what he wanted. When Green refused to budge from the seat, Murray was infuriated. “He picked me up by my ankles. Held me upside down…He dangled me over a trash can and he was like, ‘The trash goes in the trash can,'” Green remembered. “And I was screaming, and I swung my arms, flailed wildly, full contact with his balls. He dropped me in the trash can, the trash can falls over. I was horrified. I ran away, hid under the table in my dressing room and just cried.”
  4. This isn’t the first time Murray has been accused of inappropriate behavior. Geena Davis recently said that Murray was out of line with her while they worked on the 1990 movie “Quick Change.” She claimed he tried to use some kind of massage device on her when they first met and also screamed at her on set. Davis’ story came several months after Searchlight Productions suspended production on Murray’s latest project over complaints of his inappropriate behavior on set, Variety reports.
