Luke Wilson

In the soon-to-be-released remake of the comedy Death At a Funeral, you may have noticed that Luke Wilson is looking a little out of place. This doesn’t seem to matter at all to an actor who has a history of being the funny man.

Being the youngest of three boys, Wilson has grown up knowing how to take a joke, especially when his two brothers are actors as well. In high school, Wilson was less interested in acting and more of an athlete.

This all changed, and he made his film debut in the movie Bottle Rockets. The project was originally a short film created by the Wilson Brothers, but once it premiered at Sundance, the flick gained a lot of attention, and a full-length film resulted.

From here, Wilson moved into the comedy genre. Putting comedy after comedy under his belt, he was also building a relationship with actress Drew Barrymore. Starring in the comedies Best Men and Home Fries together, they seemed to be a comedy match made in heaven. Needless to say, the relationship didn’t last very long.

Perhaps one of Wilson’s most memorable roles was playing opposite Reese Witherspoon in the timeless classic Legally Blonde, and again in Legally Blonde 2. As a kind but tough law student, he was definitely charming to say the least. He also reprised his role from Charlie’s Angels in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.

Making a home for himself in Hollywood, Wilson is now considered to be part of the Hollywood Frat Pack, a group of gentlemen who specialize in making hilarious movies. Other members of this elite clan include his brother Owen, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Jack Black, Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller. Wilson has been a part of many Frat Pack films, notably Old School and the Royal Tenenbaums.

Making a brief foray into television, Wilson guest starred as Ashton Kutcher’s brother, Casey Kelso, on the teen sitcom That ‘70s Show. He is also currently acting as spokesman for AT&T in their ad campaign.

Keep an eye out for Wilson in Death At a Funeral, coming to the UK in June.
