Wednesday Morning Man: Oliver Hudson!

When your mom is Goldie Hawn, your sister is Kate Hudson and the man you call pop is Kurt Russell, it could be a little tough to emerge as a star in your own right.

But Oliver Hudson has managed to do just that.

The handsome 41-year-old actor stars in the new ABC comedy Splitting Up Together which premiered this week.  He had most previously juggled roles on the Fox series Scream Queens.and on Nashville which were quite a departure from his long-running good guy role on the long-running CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement.

Before landing the sitcom, Oliver was best known for his recurring role as Katie Holmes’ boyfriend during a few seasons of Dawson’s Creek and he also starred in the short-lived series The Mountain and My Guide to becoming a Rock Star.

I got to spend some time with Oliver and the rest of the cast of Rules on the set of the show in 2009 and found him to be extremely down to Earth and friendly. He told me that his mom had been attending some of the show’s tapings. I always wondered if we could hear any of Goldie’s famous giggle on the laugh track!

He grew up estranged from his biological father Bill Hudson who was Goldie’s second husband.

Oliver married Erinn Bartlett in 2006 and the couple has two sons named Wilder and Bodhi and a daughter named Rio.
