A new Paint poster shows Owen Wilson’s Carl Nargle smiling, surrounded by happy little trees.


Owen’s Carl Nargle, a character played by Owen Wilson, is the epitomy peace in a new Paint poster. This poster is part of Brit McAdams’ comedy about a public-access painter.

I don’t know what is more soothing than Owen Wilson smiling with a beautiful blonde afro. With light twinkling in his eyes, Wilson stares into the distance, surrounded by happy little trees for IFC Films’ new Paint poster. It’s moments such as these that make me grateful Wilson is enjoying a resurgence of cinema. Between starring in Marvel’s Loki and Disney’s Haunted Mansion and becoming powered up for the underrated Secret Headquarters family film, Wilson is in a good place.

Paint stars Owen Wilson as Vermont’s #1 public television painter, Carl Nargle, for Brit McAdams’ latest project, and Bob Ross fans are salivating.

In Paint, Wilson’s Nargle is convinced he has it all: a signature perm, custom van, and fans hanging on his every stroke. Yup! Nargle is on top of the world until a younger, better artist steals everything (and everyone) Carl loves.

McAdams directs from the 2010 Black List screenplay he wrote, with Michaela Watkins (Werewolves Within, Sword of Trust, CBS’ The Unicorn), Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids, ABC’s The Goldbergs), Ciara Renee (Hawkgirl from CW’s Arrowverse), Lusia Stuss (Search Party, 50 First Dates), Stephen Root (Office Space, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and newcomer Lucy Freyer set to star.

Wilson’s Nargle strikes a classic pose in the new Paint poster akin to portraits you’d take at Sears department stores in the ’80s. Nargle, looking both happy and wistful, revels in the beauty of the scene he has painted. The Paint poster sends dopamine to my tired Monday brain, and I am so thankful. I’d also be grateful for another cup of coffee.

Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films, said, “We’re thrilled to finally work with the boundless and versatile talent of Owen Wilson, as he effortlessly brings Carl Nargle’s character to life from a savvy script and direction by Brit McAdams. Paint has all the makings of a quotable comedic masterpiece, and we hope audiences of all ages are ready for a lot of laughs and a lot of heart.”

“In every step of making the film, we’ve fought to team up with talented collaborators who are also good people. IFC felt like the perfect place for Paint from the first conversation. Not only because they love the film and are well-respected in the industry but also because they are who they are as individuals. We’re all beyond excited to have them add their signature to this picture,” McAdams added.

Growing up with Bob Ross on public access, Paint has the potential to take a humble artist’s personality to new heights with lots of oddball gags and a strange support cast. Let’s go!
