Actor Owen Wilson says his first movie, the critically acclaimed Bottle Rocket, nearly caused him to leave Hollywood and join the army.
He said: Bottle Rocket was their worst-testing movie in history, so I looked into the Marines. Maybe I was influenced by An Officer and a Gentleman or those Marine commercials - they were so cool!
"Like a Led Zeppelin song come to life, full of people pulling swords from rocks and fighting lava monsters," he said.
