Movie joker Owen Wilson turns action man

By Laura Harding

Comedy actor Owen Wilson has said he hopes to pull the rug out from under the audience's feet with his transition to action star in his latest film.

The Hollywood stalwart is best known for roles in films such as Wedding Crashers, Zoolander and Night At The Museum, as well as whimsical comedies including Midnight In Paris and The Royal Tenenbaums, so his role in No Escape as a father fighting to protect his family when they are caught up in a coup is a significant change.

At the Los Angeles premiere of the film, Wilson (46) said he thinks it was an advantage that he was not a conventional choice for the part.
