Luke Wilson reveals why he chose to step outside his comfort zone in new DC comic series Stargirl

He’s best known for his role in Legally Blonde, My Super Ex-Girlfriend and Charlie’s Angels.

And Luke Wilson revealed to The Weekend Australian on Saturday that he was keen to step outside his comfort zone.

The 48-year-old American actor, who now stars in DC comic series Stargirl, said he was open to trying ‘something new and different’.

‘I feel like I’ve done kind of every genre from romantic comedies to dramas to westerns to playing a policeman, a lawyer, so it just seemed like something new and different,’ he explained. 

Luke, the younger brother of fellow actor Owen Wilson, stars in the 13-episode series Stargirl, alongside Brec Bassinger.

Brec plays high school student Courtney Whitmore, who takes on the role of Stargirl.

Luke acts as Courtney’s stepfather Pat Dugan, who morphs into superhero S.T.R.I.P.E with a powered armoured suit.   

The Texas-born star admitted to News.com.au on Saturday that having watched Star Wars in his childhood, he thought the role would be a piece of cake.

‘One of the things that struck me was like, I just assumed it would be easy,’ he said.

‘You’re flying this robot around, you get in the cockpit, like Han Solo flying a Millennium Falcon.

‘Reading the script, I took for granted that you really have to concentrate even though it might seem kind of simple,’ Owen continued. 

Stargirl is available to stream now on Binge.
