Luke Wilson

Biography: Luke kicked off his acting career by having fun with some buddies and was lucky enough to debut alongside his brother, Owen Wilson and friend, Wes Anderson. The trio collaborated on "Bottle Rocket," an indie sensation which launched their careers.

Brothers Owen, Andrew Wilson, and Luke Wilson grew up in Dallas, Texas. All three harbored acting aspirations, but Luke didn't really take a serious interest until college. Attending Occidental College, Luke was at first more interested in the school's athletics department than in Drama or Theatre. He excelled at track and field, but eventually Luke gave up sports after attending a theatre course. The plays of Sam Shepard in particular were of interest to him and he enjoyed performing them.

Luke has continued to work primarily in independent features, but has been gradually landing roles in a few higher profile pictures--most notably Blue Streak and Legally Blonde.
