Here’s our first look at Bill Murray up to his old tricks in Barry Levinson’s new movie. This first teaser for Rock The Kasbah follows Richie Lanz, a past-his-prime music manager who escorts his latest client (Zooey Deschanel) on a USO trip to Afghanistan, where she’ll “play in front of 2,000 horny soldiers.” When that doesn’t exactly work out, he’s stranded in that foreign land with no money, wallet or passport. Amid the ensuing confusion, gunplay and run-ins with dodgy locals, Richie happens upon an Afghan teenager with a million-dollar voice who is trying to get to Kabul to appear on an American Idol-style TV singing competition. It’s fate.
