Owen Wilson employed his famously crooked nose to great effect Wednesday, using it to correctly suss out the identity of a barnyard animal, while blindfolded, in a spirited game of “Nuzzle Whaaa???” on The Late Late Show.

“Nuzzle Whaaa???”, which host James Corden plays with guests now and then, involves donning a blindfold and nuzzling one’s face into random objects to determine what they are.

The No Escape and She’s Funny That Way star, 46, played with teammate Natasha Leggero against Corden and Johnny Knoxville. After splitting the first two rounds (in which he failed to identify cotton candy), Wilson stepped up for the tie-breaker – as a sheep was paraded out on stage.

“Oh, it’s an animal! It’s a dog!” he yelled at first, before properly nuzzling his face into the beast’s wooly flank. “It’s a sheep!” he cried – bringing glory to his team and ignominy to Corden and Knoxville.

This isn’t Wilson’s first time nuzzling on a late-night stage. Just a few weeks ago, he was “caught” kissing The Bachelorette‘s leading lady, Kaitlyn Bristowe, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Something tells us that experience was a bit more enjoyable.
