Born Owen Cunningham Wilson on November 18, 1968, in Dallas, Texas, he made a name for himself as a comic actor even though his talents spread from writing to producing. It was while he was studying at the University of Texas at Austin that he met and teamed up with his future mentor and friend, Wes Anderson. Together they created the comedy crime independent movie "Bottle Rocket" (1996) that put them on the filmmaking map. The offbeat success of their effort helped Owen land a number of roles in both small independent projects and big studio blockbusters. By the end of the decade, he also became a founding member of Hollywood's comedy club "Frat Pack" which counted Vince Vaughn, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and Owen's brother Luke Wilson among its members. In the meantime, Wilson could be seen in a great number of bankable stand-out films, including the action comedy "Shanghai Noon" (2001, along with Jackie Chan), the pleasantly quirky ensemble dramedy, "The Royal Tenenbaums" (2001), the box office smash hit "Wedding Crashers" (2005), and the three's-a-crowd romp, "You, Me & Dupree" (2006). Plus, he lent his voice in several animated features, including the crowd-pleasing animation "Cars" (2005). After his suicide attempt, Wilson lowered his public appearances to a minimum, accepting only a limited number of professional engagements. Following the dark moment, he appeared in the hit drama "Marley & Me" (2008), "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" (2009), as well as Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" (2011). The latter is one of the best roles he has ever played that only proved further Wilson is more than just a comedic actor.
