Owen Wilson

Today we're celebrating the birthday of Owen Wilson, who turns 43. Best known for his comedic stylings, Wilson got his acting start with the 1996 Wes Anderson film, Bottle Rocket. From there, he appeared in big-budget films like 1997's Anaconda and 1998's Armageddon. He started to nab roles in comedies in the early 2000s appearing opposite the likes of Jackie Chan (in 2000's Shanghai Noon) and Ben Stiller (in 2000's Meet the Parents and 2001's Zoolander). Wilson nabbed an Academy Award nomination with Anderson for writing the original screenplay for 2001's The Royal Tenenbaums, a film in which he also played a supporting role. As his fame grew, he started to score some leading roles in films like 2004's Starsky & Hutch (opposite Stiller) and 2005's Wedding Crashers (opposite Vince Vaughn). Most recently, he could have been seen in 2011's Midnight in Paris or The Big Year, and you'll next be able to hear him in the 2012 animated comedy, Turkeys. So, to celebrate his 43rd birthday, I've created a list of my five favorite Owen Wilson performances. I hope you enjoy the videos I've provided. Once again, happy birthday, Owen!
