Luke Wilson is best known for his comedic work in films like Old School, The Royal Tenenbaums and Idiocracy but the actor takes on a more dramatic role in the new film Middle Men, opening in theaters across the country on August 6th. The film is based on the true story of a straight-and-narrow businessman who builds the first online billing company dealing exclusively with adult entertainment. The film also stars Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar) and Gabriel Macht (The Spirit), as well as acting veterans Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects), Kelsey Grammer (X-Men: The Last Stand), Christopher McDonald (Happy Gilmore) and James Caan (The Godfather). We recently had a chance to sit down and speak with Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi and Gabriel Macht about the new film; their crazy characters and the true story that the film is based on.

In 1995, everyone had a VCR, music was sold in record stores, and the world-wide-web was a newfound discovery. Businessman Jack Harris (Luke Wilson) had the perfect life, a beautiful family and a successful career fixing problem companies. Then he met Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), two genius but troubled men, who had invented the way adult entertainment is sold over the Internet. When Jack agrees to help steer their business, he soon finds himself caught between a twenty-three year-old porn star and the FBI all the while becoming one of the wealthiest entrepreneurs of his time. Witness a story so outrageous, you won't believe it's true. Middle Men is a film that proves business is a lot like sex...Getting in is easy, pulling out is hard.
