Murray Brothers Roadhouse Prank Calls
In a 2012 interview with The A.V. Club, Kelly Lynch, who played the love interest of Patrick Swayze in the 1989 action film “Road House,” revealed that Bill Murray or one of his brothers calls her husband, writer and producer Mitch Glazer, every time the movie is on TV and it reaches the scene where she has a sex scene with Swayze.
Lynch said that Murray or his brothers will call Glazer and pretend to be someone else, and then they will say something like, “Kelly’s having sex with Patrick Swayze right now. They’re doing it. He’s throwing her against the rocks.”
Lynch said that she has come to expect this prank, and she even finds it funny now. She said that Murray’s brothers are “idiots,” but they are also “sweethearts.”
Lynch married director, screenwriter, and actor Mitch Glazer in 1992. Mitch is the showrunner on Magic City. He also helped producer “Lost in Translation”, “Scrooged” and various other major motion pictures.
That year, they purchased and began renovating the renowned Oyler House in Lone Pine, California, which had been designed by architect Richard Neutra in the 1940s. Before getting married, Lynch had a daughter named Shane from a previous relationship.
