The first time I saw Patrick was when he was wearing a white puffy shirt and singing “All I Ask of You” in film version of Phantom of the Opera. Not being a fan of the musical it wasn’t the most memorable way to be introduced to this Tony award-nominated actor. I didn’t have to wait long for another crack at him. Starting with the hard-hitting Hard Candy in 2005 and then Little Children in 2006 Patrick began making a name for himself as a serious indie actor. Little Children in particular garnered some critical success and a few Oscar nominations.
Next Patrick was the object of desire for most of the cast (including ones2watch4’s Hugh Dancy) in Evening. Talk about your typecasting. And after battling with the next door neighbor from hell (Lakeview Terrace) Wilson became a masked crime fighter in the epic graphic novel brought to screen Watchmen. His performance as Dan, the second Night Owl, stands out as one of the film’s best. I’m pretty sure after people will be a little more in tune with this very talented actor.
