Luke, Owen and their eldest brother Andrew have all relocated to Los Angeles, although in coming months they will visit Texas to work on a film written by Luke that he will co-direct with Andrew. Luke will play the lead, a fast-talking huckster trying to go straight. But as close as the brothers are, Luke expresses some impatience about the frequency with which people ask about his relationship with his flashier brother Owen. "What can I say but I love the guy?" he says. "I hold him above me, as a writer and an actor." Then he adds, "I was talking to [actor] Harry Dean Stanton the other day and I said, 'Harry Dean, what should I say when people ask me such a thing?' And Harry Dean said, 'I think it's a really insensitive question.'" And there it is, distant but visible, a flash of anger.
