Top 10 Owen Wilson films

By Zach Levatino,

Owen Wilson is an American actor best known for his comedic performances. Born in Dallas on Nov. 18, 1968, Wilson was more than just a class clown; he was expelled from one school in tenth grade. However, he still managed to get accepted into the University of Texas in Austin from where he would graduate in 1991.

Teaming up with a classmate from the University of Texas, Wes Anderson, an aspiring filmmaker at the time, the two went on to create a short called Bottle Rocket. They debuted this short at the 1993 Sundance Film Festival. This helped the two make even more connections which would eventually develop their short into the indie cult favorite Bottle Rocket (1996). That same year, Wilson would develop a good friendship with actor/director Ben Stiller as they worked on The Cable Guy (1996) together.

Their friendship would propel Wilson’s career even further as the two would appear in more than a half dozen films together. While Wilson can be a very good serious actor if he chooses, Stiller helped mold him into the likable but dimwitted funny guy he plays in most of his films. So with no further introduction, here are Owen Wilson’s 10 best films.
