OWEN WILSON (Nick Campbell) is an uber-talented, multi-hyphenate known for his impeccable comedic timing, masterful dialogue and understated characterizations, and an audience favorite since his breakout performance as Dignan in the Wes Anderson helmed comedy, "Bottle Rocket." With the success of this offbeat comedy, Wilson and his friend, Wes Anderson formed a prolific association collaborating on such critically acclaimed projects as "Rushmore" and "The Royal Tenenbaums," both co-written by Wilson and the latter brought them Academy Award and BAFTA nominations for Best Original Screenplay.
Over the course of Wilson's prodigious career, this creative duo would showcase their unique, visionary artistry in several lauded feature films including "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," receiving a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Cast; "The Darjeeling Limited," co-starring Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman; and the stop-motion animated film "Fantastic Mr. Fox," starring George Clooney and Meryl Streep.
With his calm, contemplative and charming on-screen persona, Wilson emerged as one of Hollywood's most sought after character actors with many memorable big screen performances including "The Cable Guy," directed by Ben Stiller and starring Jim Carrey; "The Minus Man," alongside Sheryl Crow and Dwight Yoakam; "Meet the Parents," co-starring Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller; "Shanghai Noon" and "Shanghai Knights," opposite Jackie Chan; "Behind Enemy Lines," with Gene Hackman; "Zoolander," alongside Ben Stiller; as well as the critical and box office juggernaut, "Wedding Crashers," with Vince Vaughn.
In the summer of 2011, Wilson delivered one of his best performances in the Woody Allen's Academy Award-winning comedy "Midnight in Paris." For his portrayal of Gil Pender, the Hollywood screenwriter who dreams of writing the world's next greatest novel, Wilson received praise from critics and audiences earning a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.
Wilson's extraordinary list of film credits also includes "Anaconda"; "Armageddon"; "Permanent Midnight"; "The Haunting"; "Breakfast of Champions"; "I Spy"; "Meet the Fockers"; "Around the World in 80 Days"; "Starsky & Hutch"; "The Big Bounce;" "The Wendell Baker Story"; "Night at the Museum"; "You, Me and Dupree"; "Cars"; "Drillbit Taylor"; "Marley & Me"; "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian"; "How Do You Know"; "Little Fockers"; "Marmaduke"; "Hall Pass"; "Cars 2" and "The Big Year."
His current slate of projects include "You are Here," opposite Zach Galifianakis; "Freezing People Is Easy," alongside Paul Rudd and Christopher Walken; "Squirrel to the Nuts," directed by Peter Bogdanovich, with Olivia Wilde; and "The Coup," co-starring Pierce Brosnan and Michelle Monaghan.
In 2014, Wilson will reunite for the seventh time, with longtime collaborator Wes Anderson in "The Grand Budapest Hotel," starring Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law and Bill Murray. This same year, Wilson will lend his voice talents to the Thanksgiving holiday inspired animated feature, "Turkeys," co-starring Woody Harrelson; and reteam with Ben Stiller in "Zoolander 2," the long awaited sequel to their smash hit of the same name.
Wilson was an associate producer on the Academy Award-winning film "As Good as It Gets."
