It seems Chinese restaurant chain P.F Chang’s hired actor and comedian Bill Murray to work at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta airport outpost on Concourse A.

Well, maybe.

The quick-witted actor was asked by fellow actor and comedian Amy Schumer while a guest on her podcast ”3 Girls 1 Keith” what job he would like if he wasn’t in showbiz. In unequivocal Murray fashion, and without skipping a beat, he tells Schumer he once applied at the Atlanta airport P.F. Chang’s saying “that’s one of the great places” and “it looks like the best time.”

Whether those comments were in reference to Hartsfield or the restaurant isn’t quite clear. The ambiguous answer is typical of how Murray rolls. Either way, it was an epic shout-out for the world’s busiest airport.

P.F. Chang’s accepted Murray’s application on Tuesday and offered him the job sight unseen via Twitter.

“Bill’s right, our team members really do have a good time working at P.F. Chang’s! And while we haven’t been able to locate his application yet, we decided to offer him the job anyway,” Murray’s publicist told the AJC Wednesday. “We have seen his work and think he would make a promising wok chef.”

Murray frequently pops up unexpectedly at bars, restaurants, and even house parties without notice, including randomly tending bar at his son’s Brooklyn spot, 21 Greenpoint, or showing up to inspect a Charleston taco shop, among his other shenanigans around the Holy City. Murray is regularly in Charleston. He co-owns minor league baseball team the Charleston RiverDogs

Murray is also no stranger to Atlanta and its restaurants. The iconic actor often comes to town for movies. His most recent visit to ATL was for the filming of Zombieland: Double Tap.
