Biography

Patrick Joseph Wilson (born July 3, 1973) is an American actor and singer. Wilson has spent years singing lead roles in major Broadway musicals, beginning in 1996. In 2003, he appeared in the HBO mini-series Angels in America. Wilson has appeared in more than 18 feature films, including The Alamo, The Phantom of the Opera with Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler, 2006's Little Children (opposite Kate Winslet), the 2009 film Watchmen, the 2010 film The A-Team, the 2011 film The Ledge, and Insidious among others. He has been nominated for several acting awards. He is scheduled to star in the CBS drama A Gifted Man in the 2011–12 season. Circa 2000, Wilson completed work on the film My Sister's Wedding, unreleased as of at least 2004. Wilson won critical acclaim for his performance in Mike Nichols' 2003 drama HBO mini-series Angels in America. He received both a Golden Globe nomination and an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He played Joe Pitt, a Mormon, Republican and sexually confused lawyer. Next, he appeared in The Alamo in 2004. In the same year, Wilson appeared in the film musical The Phantom of the Opera. He starred as "Raoul" (Christine's boyfriend), singing alongside Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum. In 2006, he had his first star-billing film role when he was cast as Brad Adamson in Todd Field's Little Children opposite Kate Winslet. That same year, he appeared in the Golden Globe-nominated Running With Scissors as Michael Shephard; the film was an adaptation of Augusten Burroughs's best-selling memoir of the same name. In 2008, he starred in Neil LaBute's Lakeview Terrace, as Chris Mattson, opposite Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington and Jay Hernandez. Wilson played Nite Owl II/Dan Dreiberg in Zack Snyder's 2009 film adaptation of the graphic novel Watchmen. For this role he had to gain 25 pounds after filming flashback scenes as the slimmer Nite Owl II. This film reunited Wilson with his Little Children co-star Jackie Earle Haley. He played the primary antagonist Lynch in 2010's The A-Team and co-stars with Rose Byrne in James Wan's horror film Insidious.
