Occupation: Film Director

Executive summary: Rushmore

Wes Anderson's films are oblique comedies about quest-ridden characters tugged along by their idiosyncracies. His first feature, Bottle Rocket (1996), concerned prep-school hoodlums who dream of a life of crime but can't quite pull it off, and starred Luke and Owen Wilson, who had been Anderson's collaborators on an embryonic version of the film. Rushmore (1998) debuted Jason Schwartzman as a cocky prep-school student staring down Bill Murray. Murray starred in Anderson's next two films -- The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), a sprawling, anti-family ensemble piece, touching on incest, suicide, mental illness, and cancer (released around Christmas), and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (2004), about a Jacques Cousteau-type turned Ahab whose colleague is eaten by a rare shark. The Life Aquatic co-starred Owen Wilson, but it was Anderson's first film not co-scripted by Wilson.
