Before They Were Stars: Michael Shannon in “Groundhog Day”

I always love watching a classic film that I haven’t seen in awhile and discovering a future star making his screen debut in a small role. Such was the case when I recently watched Groundhog Day and saw Boardwalk Empire star/Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon as the newlywed who receives tickets to Wrestlemania as a wedding gift from Bill Murray. As a lifelong wrestling fan, it always made me giddy to hear a Wrestlemania reference in such a beloved film.
