Oliver Rutledge Hudson (born September 7, 1976) is an American actor. He is the son of Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, and brother of Kate Hudson. Since 2007, Hudson has starred in the CBS series, Rules Of Engagement.
Early life 
Hudson was born in Los Angeles, California; the son of actress, Goldie Hawn, and musician, Bill Hudson. After their parents divorced in 1980, he and his sister, actress Kate Hudson, were raised in Colorado by their mother and the mother's boyfriend/actor, Kurt Russell. Hudson says that he considers Russell to be his father. He has four half-siblings: Emily and Zachary, from his biological father's marriage to actress, Cindy Williams; Lalania, from another of his father's relationships in 2006; and Wyatt, from his mother's relationship with Kurt Russell.
Hudson is Hungarian Jewish (from his maternal grandmother) and Italian (from his paternal grandmother). In addition Hudson's maternal grandfather was a descendant of Edward Rutledge (1749–1800), the youngest signatory of the Declaration of Independence. Hudson also is the cousin of singer, Sarah Hudson.
Hudson is best known for starring as Adam Rhodes in the TV series Rules of Engagement (2007–present), My Guide to Becoming a Rock Star and The Mountain (2004–2005), and supporting roles in the films New Best Friend (2002) and the remake of The Out-of-Towners (1999). Hudson also played opposite Katie Holmes as her love interest, Eddie Doling, in sixteen episodes of Dawson's Creek. Hudson played in the 2005 World Series of Poker Main Event, but went broke on the very first hand, losing to 2003 runner-up, Sam Farha, who had a better Full House than Hudson.
Personal life 
Hudson married actress Erinn Bartlett on June 9, 2006, in Mexico. The ceremony was officiated by a Buddhist monk. The couple has two sons: Wilder Brooks Hudson, born August 23, 2007, and Bodhi Hawn Hudson, born March 19, 2010. He is also an avid golfer and plays to a 2-handicap.
