Brian is the oldest brother of actors Bill Murray, Joel Murray and John Murray. Doyle-Murray uses his hyphenated name (Doyle is his grandmother's maiden name) because there is another actor (albeit British) with the same name. One of his sisters, Nancy, is an Adrian Dominican nun in Illinois.
Murray has appeared in numerous films and television shows since the 1970s, including as a featured player on NBC's Saturday Night Live from 1979-1982. He was a regular performer on the National Lampoon Radio Hour, a comedy program syndicated nationally to some 600 stations from 1973 to 1975. Co-workers on the Radio Hour included Richard Belzer, John Belushi, Gilda Radner and his younger brother Bill.
He's a frequent television guest star, most recently on a string of Yes, Dear episodes. He was Mel Sanger, the bubble boy's dad, on Seinfeld.
He is also a voice actor acting as the Flying Dutchman on Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants and as Maggie's dad on Disney Channel's The Buzz on Maggie.
He was referenced on Arrested Development in the episode Missing Kitty. Apparently, he is the only person James Lipton, as the Warden, has ever called a coward.… Expand
