Wax On, Wax Off

In Shanghai Knights, Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson head to Victorian London, where they spar with baddies in Madame Tussaud's wax museum. What does Chan think of his own wax replicas in the London and Hong Kong Tussaud's? ''The only thing wrong is the hair,'' says Chan. ''The air-conditioning messes with the hair, so I have to fix when I go visit.'' Costar Wilson has no eagerness to sit for sculptors. ''I'd be afraid to see what I look like,'' he admits. ''Those places are creepy.'' Should Tussaud's ever come calling, though, younger brother Luke Wilson (Old School) advises the artists not to mess with Owen's ''trademark'' crooked nose: ''It's what makes him recognizable -- unlike me, who [gets mistaken for] David Arquette.''
