We know the summer has only begun (I know, my Irish  friends, it’s hard to believe) but let’s look forward to Christmas.

In particular, get ready for not just a Merry Christmas… but a Murray Christmas!

Yes, we’ve all seen the memes, and now we’re getting ready for the Netflix’s Christmas Special of the same name.

“A Very Murray Christmas” is being written by Sofia Coppola, Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer and directed by Sofia Coppola. The story features Murray, who’s worried that no one will show up to his TV show after a massive snowstorm grips New York. Perseverance prevails as guests do show up and spread cheer through song and dance.

As for who will be in it? Well, check out this line-up: George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, members of the band Phoenix, Rashida Jones and Miley Cyrus.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
