Owen Wilson killed it on #SNL. Bonus: judging by the audience reaction, I had no idea there were so many "Cars" fans.

@nbcsnl I wish #OwenWilson had a Twitter account so I could tell him how awesome he was on SNL last night.
He plays all characters so well.
Oh, well, maybe you can pass it on to him.

His monologue was great and he shined in some of the skits, but I don't think the material overall was stellar. He's funnier than he came off tonight. Still I'm a top fan of SNL and Owen Wilson…I really liked the skit where he did a studio reading for a new Cars movie release!
