OWEN WILSON (Roy O'Bannon) has starred in several hit films over the past few years, and has received acclaim for three screenplays he has co-written with director Wes Anderson. Their most recent collaboration, Touchstone Pictures' "The Royal Tenenbaums,” earned the duo an Oscar® nomination this year for Best Original Screenplay. 

Directed by Anderson, the comedy co-stars Wilson with Gene Hackman, Ben Stiller, Bill Murray, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Luke Wilson, and tells the story of a dysfunctional family of geniuses who wind up as adults living under the same roof. 

Prior to that, Wilson starred in "Zoolander” opposite Ben Stiller, "Behind Enemy Lines” with Gene Hackman, and in Jay Roach's blockbuster "Meet the Parents,” which also starred Robert DeNiro, Ben Stiller, Teri Polo and Blythe Danner. 

He first teamed with Jackie Chan in 2000 for "Shanghai Noon,” the Western with comic overtones in which Wilson originated the character of train robber Roy O'Bannon. 

Wilson's vision as a writer was displayed in Touchstone Pictures' critically lauded comedy, "Rushmore,” which follows the love triangle of an unusually driven fifteen-year-old private school student, a beautiful first grade teacher, and a jaded millionaire. Starring Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, the film was named on several critics' "Top Ten” lists of 1998. It was Wilson's second collaboration with director Wes Anderson, following their debut with the acclaimed independent comedy "Bottle Rocket,” which also marked Wilson's acting debut. Co-starring Wilson's brother, Luke, the film follows the trials of a group of friends, who aspire to be small-time criminals. The film was produced by Academy Award® winner James L. Brooks after he saw a short film version of the project. 

Wilson's additional acting credits include the dark comedy "The Minus Man,” directed by Hampton Fancher (the writer of "Blade Runner” in his directorial debut), in which Wilson stars with Janeane Garofalo, Dwight Yoakam, Mercedes Ruhl, and Sheryl Crow; "Permanent Midnight” with Ben Stiller; Jerry Bruckheimer's "Armageddon”; "Anaconda” with Jennifer Lopez and Jon Voight; and Ben Stiller's "The Cable Guy” with Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick.
