Owen Wilson’s reps are denying any connection between his new movie, You, Me and Dupree, and a song by Steely Dan.

The veteran ’70 rock band recently posted a letter on their website claiming that Wilson's Dupree character was based on their Grammy-winning song, "Cousin Dupree," about a couch-crashing houseguest.

In a statement released by his spokesperson, Wilson said, "I have never heard the song 'Cousin Dupree' and I don't even know who this gentleman, Mr. Steely Dan, is. I hope this helps to clear things up and I can get back to concentrating on my new movie, "Hey 19."

Wilson is...wait a second....Ooooohhh, I get it! “Hey 19'” is the title of another Steely Dan song! That hilarious bastard! So, in a way, he is conceding that he is indeed familiar with the group and song in question...which can interpreted as admitting his crappy movie is indeed a rip off!

Sweet.

"There are some pretty heavy people who are upset about this whole thing and we can't guarantee what kind of heat little Owen may be bringing down on himself," band leaders Walter Becker and Donald Fagen wrote in the letter before asking appear at a concert to apologize to their fans.
