Between The Night Before and A Very Murray Christmas it’s going to be quite the comedy star-studded holiday season! And the winner in all this is clearly Miley Cyrus, who will appear in both. The conceit of the Netflix special is that Murray is in New York City’s Carlyle Hotel preparing to host a live holiday broadcast, but then a blizzard shuts down production. So what’s a guy to do when he’s got nothing but time in a posh hotel and all the coolest celebrities on speed dial? Invite them all to pass the night with song and dance, obviously! And when we said Murray’s got all the cool friends, we weren’t joking. George Clooney, Michael Cera, Amy Poehler, Paul Shaffer, Jason Schwartzman, Miley Cyrus, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, David Johansen, Dimitri Dimitrov, Julie White, Jenny Lewis, Frederic Moulin, Rashida Jones, and more will all show up at one point or another with Sofia Coppola directing them. A Very Murray Christmas, indeed.
