text: That's a pretty big oops.

Bill Murray said in an interview on Reddit that he signed on for the "Garfield" animated movie by mistake.

Murray said he mistook the director, Joel Cohen, for being one of the acclaimed Coen brothers.

He is not.

"I wasn't thinking clearly, but it was spelled Cohen, not Coen. I love the Coen brothers' movies. I think that Joel Coen is a wonderful comedic mind," Murray wrote. "So I didn't really bother to finish the script, I thought, "He's great, I'll do it."

Murray has still not worked with the Coen brothers.

title: 'Walking Dead' Cast Pranks One of Their Own

text:That's one way to leave an impression.

Megafan Nick Santonastasso, 16, had his dream come true when he was flown in by cast members for a "Walking Dead" prank of one of their own.

Santonastasso, who was born with Hanhart syndrome and as only one arm and no legs, has become a Web celebrity by making Vines of his "zombie pranks." But those were just practice for the ultimate prank on "Walking Dead" cast member Norman Reedus, who plays tough talking Daryl Dixon on the show.

Santonastasso got the full zombie make-up treatment before hiding in a cart in Reedus' room. With hidden cameras rolling, Santonastasso jumped out at Reedus causing even tough Daryl to scream.

title: Jets Ex-General Manager Admits Tebow a 'Mistake'


Looks like a few people are still recovering from the Tebow-Jets debacle.

In an interview on CBS radio, Jets ex-general manager Mike Tannebaum recounted the mistakes he made before he was fired from the team in 2012. One big mistake: trading for Tim Tebow.

"Obviously, we made a couple mistakes -- trading for Tim Tebow most notably," Tannenbaum told CBS News. "But I would say beyond that, some of the things looking at our roster from the bottom up we could have done a better job with that, especially towards the end."

The Jets finished 6-10 in 2012.

Tebow joined ESPN as a commentator in December, but is still pursuing an NFL career.
