Owen was direct, perhaps a bit shy, and possessed of a dry, sardonic sense of humor. He continues to be one of the most interesting actors working today, never playing the same type of role twice.

First things first, the perfect vehicle for a Tampa jaunt is definitely the 2015 BMW M4 and if you are scratching your head wondering where the M4 came from, never fear BMW aficionados; it's really the M3 with a new name and slightly updated look minus a few doors and with a headier sense of style.
