Splitsider: Actor. Writer. Guy with a funny-looking nose. Owen Wilson is a multi-hyphenate who has the rare ability to balance diverse projects, from quirky Wes Anderson indies (Bottle Rocket) to goofy buddy flicks (Shanghai Noon), big budget disaster movies (Armageddon) to bawdy mainstream comedies (Wedding Crashers). Wilson’s writing talents aren’t to be slighted either. He earned an Oscar nomination in 2002 for co-authoring The Royal Tenenbaums with Wes Anderson, and the pair also scripted Bottle Rocket and Rushmore together. Wilson is still going strong, with his new movie, The Big Year, a bird-watching comedy that also stars Steve Martin and Jack Black, opening tomorrow.
