Wilson plays Ben Stone in this dramedy directed by Thomas Bezucha. When the favorite son brings his uptight, corporate girlfriend home for the holidays, the Stones disapprove and conspire to make her feel unwelcome amid their free-spirited ways. Co-starring Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Dermot Mulroney, Rachel McAdams, Craig T. Nelson and Claire Danes.
For me, it was just one of those things where it was my character on the page—and then also the other characters. Where it seemed like it would be fun to be around those people. And I don’t know that there’s anything I don’t like about Ben, except that maybe he does seem kind of aimless.
