Up there with Walt Disney, Ghandi and Steve Jobs, Bill Murray is one of Earth’s most legendary people.
He uses a 1-800 number instead of an agent, has sang a duet with Clint Eastwood, was arrested trying to smuggle 10 pounds of cocaine through Chicago, and tended a bar for the night with members of the Wu-Tang Clan, giving everyone tequila shots no matter what they ordered.
There’s already well-established folklore about the living legend that is Bill Murray, and now we have another one.
Is this a photo of the legendary Bill Murray, or the slightly-less-legendary-but-still-legendary Tom Hanks?
The photo, posted more than three years ago on ‘Reasons My Son Is Crying’ has suddenly gone viral again thanks to Reddit. And people are confused whether it’s actually Bill Murray, or really Tom Hanks.
Or is it Bill Hanks?
The Internet doesn’t seem to know:
I don't know whether *any* photo of Tom Hanks or Bill Murray is a photo of Tom Hanks or Bill Murray. So.

Luckily, the woman in the photo has given us all the answer.
It’s Bill Murray.
According to Laura DiMichele-Ross, who lives in Perthshire, the photo ‘pops up on Facebook every few months’. She told The Guardian: “We are finding this very funny. I personally don’t see the resemblance to Tom Hanks but we’ve noticed that people have been mentioning it for years.”
At least we can add ‘Bill Murray’s crying face looks like Tom Hanks’ to the list of awesome things about him.
