Doing an animated film must be an absolute blast for an actor. Show up in your pajamas. No time in hair and makeup. Don't shave your fu manchu. All that the film's producers need is your voice — your sweet, golden, $20-million-a-picture pipes.
For some actors, however, that's a problem. It's no one's fault; in fact, it's often a testament to their on-screen success with other endeavors. But there are a certain group of thespians whose voices are just too damn distinct to hide behind a cartoon character. They might deliver a fine performance, but it just doesn't quite work because we all know their voice so well. Get More »
The plot of "The Internship," which was revealed several months ago, mentioned "an Internet company." Now we know that it's, well, the Internet company.
Google indulges in a nice feature-length commercial for itself (and, to be fair, a seemingly sometimes self-deprecating one, too) in "The Internship," the culture clash comedy that reunites frequent co-stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson for the first time since "Wedding Crashers" (2005). Get More »
If you're an up-and-coming go-getter looking to gain some valuable experience in your chosen profession, one of the best ways to begin your career is by taking on an internship and learning the tricks of the trade first hand from veterans in your field. And that's just as true in the field of movies as it is anywhere else.
Case in point: According to Cinema Blend, "Teen Wolf" star Dylan O'Brien has signed on to "The Internship" to learn the ins and outs of Hollywood comedy at the feet of the masters, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn.

They may be brothers and sisters in real life, but in the acting world, sibling actors are often fierce competitors. Sometimes they're even up for the same roles.
You could call these cases of sibling rivalry being played out on the big screen a real family affair, along the lines of "Mom always liked you best."
We've come up with a list of top actors who have competing brothers or sisters. Vote on your favorites of each brother-brother, brother-sister or sister-sister pairing -- and may the best siblings win. Get More »
Owen Wilson doesn't find it very funny anymore.
The "Midnight in Paris" star is preparing to shift into action mode for the first time in over ten years as he's set to stage "The Coup," according to Deadline.
"The Coup" centers on an American family in Southeast Asia that becomes embroiled in a violent rebel attack. Wilson plays a father in the film that reportedly has a similar tone to the Liam Neeson kidnapping thriller, "Taken." Get More »
Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn took comedic chemistry to new heights in 2005's blockbuster "Wedding Crashers." Between Vaughn's motormouth riffs and Wilson's unbeatable enthusiasm, we expected these giants to be onscreen best buds for years to come.
When you think "Mad Men," you think about expensive suits and martini lunches, not Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis — but that all may be about to change.
Matthew Weiner, the man who brought us Don Draper (swoon), has finally gotten the wheels turning on his passion project, "You Are Here," an indie film about two guys who need to get their lives together after one takes over a hefty inheritance following his father's passing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

We love Owen Wilson. "Midnight in Paris." "Marley and Me." "A Night at the Museum." Heck, we even saw "The Big Year" twice. So if Wilson is in a movie, we're pretty much there, regardless of the details.
But sometimes we get a little bit of Wilson news that kicks the excitement up a couple of notches -- and this is one of those times, as New York Magazine is reporting that Wilson is in talks to star opposite Tina Fey in the upcoming film "Admission."

If you think making New Year's resolutions is for the birds, you're right — and as our awesome new "The Big Year" giveaway proves, it's never been easier or cooler to join the flock.
Just ask Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steve Martin.
Those three, of course, headlined last fall's acclaimed comedy "The Big Year," which tells the story of three very different men who embark on a year-long quest to win the annual national bird watching championship. Along the way, though, they discover more than the inner life of birds — they also discover what's important in their own lives. Get More »
