Peter Fonda on Owen Wilson in ‘Midnight in Paris’

SAG Preview 2011: Actors on Actors

Owen Wilson’s performance in ‘Midnight in Paris’ is different than any other film incarnation I’ve seen in a Woody Allen film. As Gil, Owen’s quirks, mannerisms, speech patterns and other tools on his palette seem to reflect what our culture views of Allen, but Owen made it all his own. Not only does Owen weave through the present and past in this film, so does his acting, which maneuvers between subtle, comedic and reflective. While Allen’s film inspects the idea of nostalgia, I think in the coming years that people will look back and reflect on the touching acting that Owen displays in this wonderful film.”
