In case you haven’t heard, Owen Wilson attempted suicide over the weekend. But don’t worry the crooked-nose actor is alive and recovering from the pills and slit wrists. Of course, this comes as a shock to everyone because he’s a funny guy on film and there was no note or My Space warning. Come on, Owen. At least write a note.
I avoided keeping the site updated with the continuing saga because I didn’t want to turn this into a “what’s the latest with [random celebrity]” type of site.
But now, due to the drama, his small part in Tropic Thunder, directed by Ben Stiller, that he was supposed to shoot in the next few weeks is in jeopardy. According to Variety, he has dropped out of the movie. It will likely be recast or just written out of the film.
No word on Wilson’s other projects. He stars in The Darjeeling Limited due out on September 29.
