That's Owen Wilson with the "Ring Around The Collar" spacesuit in this scene from MAD's parody of the 1998 thriller Armageddon. Written by Arnie Kogen and illustrated by Angelo Torres, "Ahm-A-Gettin' (The Hell Outta Here!)" originally ran in MAD #375 (November '98).

Angelo Torres got another crack at Owen Wilson when the latter was cast as Ben Stiller's rival in the 2000 comedy Meet The Parents. Dick DeBartolo wrote "Meek With The Parents," which originally ran in MAD #402 (February '01).

Owen Wilson's lead role in the 2001 action flick Behind Enemy Lines, based on a real-life 1995 incident from the Bosnian War, resulted in the first of two MAD spoofs of Wilson films to be illustrated by Tom Richmond. Dick DeBartolo wrote the first, "Behind Empty Lines," which originally appeared in MAD #415 (March '02).
MAD Magazine #417 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
And here's the second Tom Richmond-illustrated Owen Wilson movie spoof to appear in MAD over a three-issue span, "The Royal Paininthebums." Written by Arnie Kogen, the five-pager - appearing in MAD #417 (May '02) - spoofed The Royal Tenenbaums, which featured Wilson as Eli Cash and was also co-written by Wilson and director Wes Anderson. The duo were subsequently nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

Despite his roles in supposedly "adult" movies, a generation of moviegoers will likely know Owen Wilson best as Lightning McQueen. But, given the scene depicted here (soon to be replicated for the upcoming sequel Cars 3), Wilson probably doesn't mind that at all. Writer Scott Maiko and artist Paul Coker teamed up for "Little-Known Facts, Rumours and Total Fabrications About 'Cars,'" which originally ran in MAD #467 (July '06).
