The comedy duo of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson bantered with fans and unveiled the trailer for their upcoming film, "The Internship," via an interactive video chat Wednesday. The event was streamed as a Google+ Hangout - a tidy bit of synergy given that the film revolves around two old-school salesmen, played by Vaughn and Wilson, who talk their way into coveted internships at Google in an attempt to restart their flagging careers. The Mountain View, Calif.-based Internet search giant does not have a financial stake in the 20th Century Fox movie, but did give the film crew access to its campus in September and also consulted on creating a Google-like set. During the hangout , which was hosted by talk show host Conan O'Brien, Vaughn and Wilson took questions from fans and displayed their trademark brands of humor.

Owen Wilson has denied any connection between his new movie, "You, Me and Dupree," and '70s supergroup Steely Dan, a spokesman for the actor said Friday. The band recently posted a letter on its website claiming that Wilson's Dupree character was based on their Grammy-winning song, "Cousin Dupree," about a couch-hopping houseguest. In a statement released by his spokeswoman, Ina Treciokas, Wilson said: "I have never heard the song 'Cousin Dupree' and I don't even know who this gentleman, Mr.

Owen Wilson has returned to the public eye, making an appearance at the L.A. premiere of his new film, "The Darjeeling Limited." Sporting a shaggy blond beard and wearing a dark jacket, Wilson, 38, was joined by cast mates Adrien Brody, Anjelica Huston, Jason Schwartzman and filmmaker Wes Anderson. It was among Wilson's first public appearances since an apparent suicide attempt in late August.

That laid-back Texas drawl. The zany, off-kilter sensibility. An uncanny ability to improvise. It was seemingly impossible to square actor Owen Wilson's public persona as a happy go-lucky bon vivant with news that he was hospitalized over the weekend after widespread but unconfirmed reports that he had tried to commit suicide.

While directing Owen Wilson in "The Royal Tenenbaums," Wes Anderson realized there was something different about the way his writing partner and close friend was acting during rehearsal. It had been five years since Anderson last directed him, in "Bottle Rocket," their first project, which jump-started their careers. Wilson had become a better actor, but he had also developed an annoying habit.

SAN FRANCISCO - As soon as the credits rolled on "The Internship," Rachel Kang, a 20-year-old UC Berkeley sophomore from Torrance, headed straight back to her apartment to Google jobs at Google Inc. "I have always loved Google. I think everyone does. The movie just cemented my appreciation even more," Kang said after seeing a sneak preview of the film last month. "I do think a lot of people will be even more drawn to the company than they are now. " That's just what Google wants to hear.

"Free Birds" is an odd duck. The animated feature has a nifty premise: time-traveling turkeys, for starters. They're critters on a mission, as one would assume, their goal nothing less than rewriting American culinary history - and the fate of their species - by changing the main course at the first Thanksgiving. Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler contribute spirited voice work, and the movie renders the Plymouth Colony in a rich autumn palette. But like the ungainly avian creatures at the center of the herky-jerky adventure, this 'toon seldom gets off the ground.

Before Wes Anderson directed his first feature film, he'd hang out at an eclectic coffee shop in Dallas where he met a 70-something yoga teacher - Kumar Pallana - who was like a one-man Ed Sullivan variety show. To entertain customers in the cafe owned by his son, Pallana would juggle, do magic tricks and perform a vaudeville staple: plate spinning. Anderson and his buddy, actor-writer Owen Wilson, made Pallana an offer. "They said they were shooting a movie and 'Are you interested in being in it?

This weekend, "The Internship" may become the latest star-driven movie to get beaten by a lower-wattage production. The comedy, which stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, appears set to follow in the footsteps of Will Smith's "After Earth," which last weekend failed to attract more moviegoers than its far less high-profile competition "Now You See Me. " According to those who have seen pre-release audience surveys, "The Internship" will probably...

When Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson crashed weddings with such crazy success in 2005, they wanted to get laid. Older and not particularly wiser in "The Internship," the guys now want to get jobs. That's funny. Unfortunately, the comedy is linked to some new-age nonsense about old-school guys finally catching up with the Internet age. It's a one-liner forged into a two-hour joke. At stake is a much-coveted summer internship at Google that could lead to a full-time gig. This sets up a fish-out-water tale with the 40-something goofballs essentially thrown into a school ruled by young nerd geniuses.

OWEN WILSON may be the only Oscar-nominated screenwriter who's never owned a computer. He's not going to take the plunge now at the advanced age of 37 because he's afraid he'd get addicted to computer games. "If I got one at this point, I'm very susceptible to getting super into it," he drawls over turkey burgers in a joint in Venice. "I'll look at these ads for these war games they have, and they look so cool." He elongates the word for effect. "I feel I could really lose myself."

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson may be the big names in the new comedy "The Internship," but the real star of the film is Google. The company campus in Mountain View, Calif., is the setting for the movie in which Vaughn and Wilson play down-on-their-luck watch salesmen searching for a second chance as Silicon Valley interns. Google lent its brand to the 20th Century Fox movie and let the production film two days on-site without charging location or licensing fees.

Aasif Mandvi knows how to get a laugh. Throughout his seven years (and counting) as a correspondent on TV's "The Daily Show," he has skewered politicians, celebrities and the media with a combination of incisive cultural commentary and goofball antics. Boasting mock expertise in a wide variety of fields, Mandvi has posed as the show's Middle Eastern affairs correspondent, senior financial analyst, Baghdad bureau chief, senior medical correspondent and whatever else the day's humor calls for. The big-screen comedy "The Internship" features him in a less familiar role: the straight man. FULL COVERAGE: Summer sneaks The film, opening June 7, reunites "Wedding Crashers" stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as a pair of fast-talking but outmoded salesmen who finagle internships at Google in the hopes of reinvigorating their foundering careers.
