  • Patrick Fugit landed squarely on top of the Hollywood heap when, for the actor's big-screen debut, writer/director Cameron Crowe tapped him to play the lead, William Miller (Crowe's onscreen teenage alter-ego), in the smash film à clef Almost Famous (2000). The high profile of the role and the movie's success ensured continued stardom for the then-17-year-old, who had forged a path to stardom by discovering a rudimentary love of acting in seventh grade and asking his mother to help him sign with an agent. After the Crowe assignment, Fugit essayed a series of roles over the next several years that typically found him playing a hunky boyfriend -- as in White Oleander (2002) and the teen-oriented religious farce Saved! (2003). Unfortunately -- Famous and Saved aside -- Fugit's subsequent role choice often left something to be desired, witness his involvement in the dumb-dumb monster movie Dead Birds (2004) and the barely released comedy Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas (2006). In 2007, Fugit signed to play opposite screen heavy Dennis Quaid in the psychological thriller Horsemen (2008). He appeared in 2009's Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant. He reteamed with Cameron Crowe playing a zookeeper in 2011's We Bought a Zoo, and had a role as the independent-minded son in the HBO docudrama Cinema Verite.

QUOTES FROM Patrick Fugit CHARACTERS

Astrid Magnussen
Looks don't interest me.
Paul Trout
That's easy for you to say. You've never been ugly.
Bickford Schmeckler
Happiness isn't just a switch in your head that you can turn on at will.
Ralph
Yes, it is.
Bickford Schmeckler
We exist in this narrow band of perception. It makes something as simple as thinking clearly, impossible.
Bickford Schmeckler
Goddamn tyranny of logic!
Bickford Schmeckler
The world doesn't need anymore self-important student poets.
Russell Hammond
What am I doing? I' am telling secrets to the ONE guy you don't tell secrets too.
William Miller
No. We'll do the interview some other time.
Russell Hammond
Okay. Cool. So I guess tonight it's just. . . you know, friends?
Russell Hammond
Okay. Cool. So I guess tonight it's just... you know, friends?
Zia
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
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
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
Yeah.
Zia
Well... When I'm here, with you, I kind of miss myself, the way I used to be.
Mikal
What were you like?
Zia
I was happy at a time, obviously before I came here, but...
Zia
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
You know what? Most of the people that I knew before I got here were either half dead or just completely dead already...
Eugene
I'm not sitting in the back.
Zia
Why not?
Eugene
'Cause everybody knows guy in the back seat doesn't have a cock.
Zia
Being here with you reminds me of what I was like before my suicide.
Mikal
What were you like?
Zia
I was happy.
Lester Bangs
They made you feel cool. And hey, I met you. You are not cool.
William Miller
I know. Even when I thought I was, I knew I wasn't. I'm glad you were home.
Lester Bangs
I'm always home. I'm uncool.
Russell Hammond
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
He's your guardian angel, alright?
Dick Roswell
[to William] Don't worry he only means half of what he says.
William Miller
Which half?
William Miller
Russell, think about your last words wisely
Russell Hammond
Ok. Um...I dig music......And I'm on drugs!
William Miller
"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!

I'm not going out tonight. It just makes me depressed.
Eugene
So, what you gonna do? Kill yourself?
Evra the Snake Boy
