Patrick Wilson - Rotten Tomatoes

Patrick Wilson



A handsome actor whose skills on stage and screen are only rivaled by his remarkable voice, Patrick Wilson made a name for himself in theater before making a gradual transition to the silver screen. The Norfolk, VA, native pursued his higher education at the famed Carnegie Mellon University, where he stood out from the pack when he was awarded the Charles Willard Memorial Award for Undergraduate Excellence in Music Theatre before earning his B.F.A. in drama in 1995. The next year, Wilson took the lead for a national tour of Carousel, followed by a performance in a Goodspeed Opera House production of Lucky in the Rain. After a memorable turn as pianist Erwin "Chopin" Boots in a La Jolla Playhouse production of Barry Manilow's Harmony, Wilson performed in the nonmusical, six-hour stage version of The Cider House Rules. Though his supposed "breakthrough" role in a stage production of Bright Lights, Big City failed to cement his career, the rising star made his Broadway debut in The Gershwin's Fascinating Rhythm shortly thereafter. Wilson's true breakthrough did eventually come when he took the lead for a stage version of the popular film The Full Monty, and in 2001, he made his screen debut in Dark Stories: Tales from Beyond the Grave. Though that film went largely unseen, a role in HBO's acclaimed miniseries Angels in America found his transition to the big screen moving along smoothly. The following year, Wilson tackled his biggest role to date in the eagerly anticipated historical drama The Alamo (2004) before gearing up for a key part in Joel Schumacher's Phantom of the Opera (also 2004).
