More comedies soon followed. The wrestling-themed Ready to Rumble (2000) was a box office disappointment, earning only $12 million according to Variety. The Las Vegas crime caper 3,000 Miles to Graceland (2001) and the mutant spider adventure Eight Legged Freaks (2002) did not fare much better.
Arquette took on more dramatic fare with a small role in The Grey Zone (2002) about Auschwitz,
the notorious concentration camp . He also appeared as a journalist in the crime drama Never Die Alone (2004). That same year, Arquette and his wife welcomed their first child, a daughter named Coco.

That same year, Arquette appeared in the comedy Hamlet 2 starring Steve Coogan. He also made guest appearances on such shows as Pushing Daisies and My Name Is Earl.
In recent years, Arquette has been creating his own projects. He made his debut as the writer and director for The Tripper (2007), a film about a serial killer who targets hippies. He also wrote the screenplay. This low-budget satirical look at horror films featured all-star cast, including appearances by his wife Courteney, brother Richmond, brother-in-law Thomas Jane, Paul Reubens, Balthazar Getty, Jaime King, and Lukas Haas.
