Owen Wilson booking
His trademark crooked nose was caused by having his nose broken once in high school and again in college during a flag football game at the University of Texas.
Owen landed minor roles in big budgeted movies very quickly such as The Cable Guy which was directed by Ben Stiller. After minor appearances in action films like Anaconda, Armageddon and The Haunting, Owen got his big break with the 2000 comedy action hit Shanghai Noon starring opposite Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan. After the success of Rush Hour, producers thought the buddy formula could work again with Jackie Chan being paired with a white man this time. And they were right. The film was a success, grossing nearly $100 million dollars worldwide.
Owen returned to the buddy comedy genre in 2002 with the action comedy I Spy, co-starring this time with Eddie Murphy. The big screen remake of the television series flopped at the box office. He then reunited with Chan to make Shanghai Knights (2003), teamed up with Ben Stiller in the movie remake of the television series Starsky & Hutch (2004), and partnered with Vince Vaughn in the 2005 Wedding Crashers which grossed over $200 million dollars in the US alone.
In 2001, Wilson and Anderson wrote their third film, The Royal Tenenbaums, which was a financial and critical success. The comedy featured an all-star cast, including Gene Hackman, Ben Stiller, Anjelica Huston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Luke Wilson, and Danny Glover. Wilson had a memorable supporting role in the film as a Professor-turned-bestseller “Eli Cash.” It earned the writing team an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
Wilson\’s roles have varied between small, quirky comedy collaborations with Anderson and bigger budget box office fare. Wilson, along with Ben Stiller, Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Jack Black, and Steve Carell are considered members of the Frat Pack. He is the first “Frat Pack” member to receive an Academy Award nomination.
He has been in seven movies with Ben Stiller, up to this date. They are The Cable Guy (1996), Permanent Midnight (1998), Meet the Parents (2000), Zoolander (2001), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), Starsky & Hutch (2004) and Meet the Parents (2004).
