Phil Connors is the protagonist of the movie Groundhog Day. While he isn't technically a villain, he is an arrogant jerk who remains this way until he changes his ways after somehow being forced to repeat Groundhog Day for several years. He's really more of an anti-hero.

He is portrayed by Bill Murray. 



Before he gets trapped in a time loop that causes him to repeat the same day over and over again, Phil is a very arrogant weatherman who acts like a jerk to almost everybody around him. He also takes advantage of the time loop by doing villainous things such as tricking a woman into sleeping with him, punching a man in the face, and kidnapping Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog and killing both himself and the groundhog. In the end, he uses the time loop to help people around the town and makes Rita fall in love with him, after which the time loop finally ends.


  • Estimates have placed Phil in the time loop for as long as a decade.
