More Luke Wilson Bios & Profiles
Biography #2 (for Old School)Luke Wilson made his feature film debut in Bottle Rocket, which also marked his first onscreen work with his brother, actor/writer Owen Wilson, and writer/director Wes Anderson. They then reteamed on Anderson's Rushmore, one of the most critically acclaimed films of 1998, which was co-written by Anderson and Owen Wilson, and co-starred Luke Wilson. In 2001, Anderson and the Wilson brothers enjoyed their most successful collaboration on the widely acclaimed comedy The Royal Tenenbaums, again directed by Anderson and co-written by Owen Wilson and Anderson, in which the Wilson brothers joined an all-star ensemble cast, including Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller and Bill Murray.
