Patrick Fugit was an American actor whose eternally boyish looks and willingness to take on any part, no matter how strange, made him a recognizable face in film and television throughout the 21st century. Born on October 27, 1982 in Salt Lake City, UT, Fugit began acting professionally when he was still a teenager, making his screen debut with a small arc on the religious drama series "Touched By an Angel" (CBS, 1994-2003). However, his film debut would be the role that ended up defining his career: Fugit was only seventeen when he was cast in the lead role of Cameron Crowe's autobiographical comedic drama "Almost Famous" (2000). In the film, Fugit played William Miller, an aspiring rock journalist in the early 70s who ditches his senior year of high school to go on tour with the (fictional) hard rock band Stillwater and write about the experience for Rolling Stone magazine, much to the consternation of his overprotective academic mother (Frances McDormand). "Almost Famous" was a modest hit at the box office, but was praised by critics, earned Crowe an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, and made Fugit one of the most in-demand young actors in Hollywood practically overnight. For his next role, Fugit stepped outside of his comfort zone, playing a naive speed addict named Frisbee in the stylish, kinetic indie drama "Spun" (2002). After a small featured role on "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009), Fugit returned to the indie film world, taking on the role of a skateboarding son of a pastor in the Catholic school satire "Saved!" (2004), and a young man who commits suicide only to find himself in a strange purgatory that's just slightly worse than real life in the bizarre black comedy "Wristcutters: A Love Story" (2006). Fugit largely focused on TV for a while, most notably making an appearance on "House" (FOX, 2004-2012), before landing his biggest movie role in years, playing a somewhat dimwitted detective in David Fincher's adaptation of "Gone Girl" (2014). For his next project, Fugit returned to TV, playing a man struggling with a bad case of demonic possession in small town West Virginia, in Robert Kirkman and Paul Azteca's supernatural horror series "Outsider" (Cinemax, 2016-). Fugit next landed a supporting role in "First Man" (2018), director Damien Chazelle's biopic of astronaut Neil Armstrong, starring Ryan Gosling.

QUOTES FROM Patrick Fugit CHARACTERS

Astrid Magnussen says: Looks don't interest me.

Paul Trout says: That's easy for you to say. You've never been ugly.

Bickford Schmeckler says: Happiness isn't just a switch in your head that you can turn on at will.

Ralph says: Yes, it is.

Bickford Schmeckler says: We exist in this narrow band of perception. It makes something as simple as thinking clearly, impossible.

Bickford Schmeckler says: Goddamn tyranny of logic!

Bickford Schmeckler says: The world doesn't need anymore self-important student poets.

Russell Hammond says: What am I doing? I' am telling secrets to the ONE guy you don't tell secrets too.

William Miller says: No. We'll do the interview some other time.

Russell Hammond says: Okay. Cool. So I guess tonight it's just. . . you know, friends?

Russell Hammond says: Okay. Cool. So I guess tonight it's just... you know, friends?

Zia says: I think she cried at my funeral, I don't mean to brag about it or anything, but I'm pretty sure she did. Sometimes I can picture her talking to some guy she feels really close to, about how they lowered me into the grave all pathetic and shriveled up like a melted chocolate bar, and how we never actually got a chance. Then the guy fucks her real nice, fuck it's all about making her feel better.

Zia says: They went to the North Pole or whatever the place Nanuk is from is called. He wanted to meet her family and get into that throat singing, saw playing, weird instruments, and all that stuff. It's good that he's back into music, I think. And me? I think I finally understand what Kneller was trying to say.It only happens if it doesn't matter. It comes without effort. Maybe Eugene's right. Maybe I only get stuck on girls I don't have a chance of being with. I am glad for Mikal, though. I hope she got her visa all straightened out. I mean, she did say she'd be right back. Then again, Eugene's old wisdom is when a girl says that, she never does actually come back.

Zia says: You remember the other day when you were talking about missing things from life and how you wanted to go back and I told you I didn't miss anything?

Mikal says: Yeah.

Zia says: Well... When I'm here, with you, I kind of miss myself, the way I used to be.

Mikal says: What were you like?

Zia says: I was happy at a time, obviously before I came here, but...

Zia says: Something about being here with you reminds me of that, it's just, I don't know, it's just weird to me that you can feel that in a place like this. We're all... We're all dead.

Mikal says: You know what? Most of the people that I knew before I got here were either half dead or just completely dead already...

Eugene says: I'm not sitting in the back.

Zia says: Why not?

Eugene says: 'Cause everybody knows guy in the back seat doesn't have a cock.

Zia says: Being here with you reminds me of what I was like before my suicide.

Mikal says: What were you like?

Zia says: I was happy.

Lester Bangs says: They made you feel cool. And hey, I met you. You are not cool.

William Miller says: I know. Even when I thought I was, I knew I wasn't. I'm glad you were home.

Lester Bangs says: I'm always home. I'm uncool.

Russell Hammond says: Look at him, he's taking notes with his eyes. How do we know you're not a cop, huh!? The enemy! Stop fucking looking at me!

Dick Roswell says: He's your guardian angel, alright?

Dick Roswell says: [to William] Don't worry he only means half of what he says.

William Miller says: Which half?

William Miller says: Russell, think about your last words wisely

Russell Hammond says: Ok. Um...I dig music......And I'm on drugs!

William Miller says: "That groupie"? She was a Band-Aid! All she did was love your band. And you used her, all of you! You used her and threw her away! She almost died last night while you were with Bob Dylan. You guys, you're always talking about the fans, the fans, the fans; she was your biggest fan, and you threw her away! And if you can't see that, that's your biggest problem. And I love her! I love her!

Zia says: I'm not going out tonight. It just makes me depressed.

Eugene says: So, what you gonna do? Kill yourself?

Evra the Snake Boy says: *whispers/chuckles* You're like Crepsley's bitch now.
