A prolific character actor for decades, Will Patton populated dozens of films, television shows and plays with an arsenal of quiet resolve, malevolent schemes and inspirational courage. Additionally, Patton was a seasoned vocal performer as narrator for scores of audio books, which included several by American mystery writer, James Lee. As an actor, he was highly regarded as dependable player, always providing quality work in project no matter the size role, genre or budget. After a successful start in the theater - which garnered him a total of three Obie awards - Patton accumulated many memorable turns in independent movies such as "The Spitfire Grill" (1996), "Jesus' Son" (2000) and "Wendy and Lucy" (2008), as well as in more big budget offerings like "Desperately Seeking Susan" (1985), "After Hours" (1985), "No Way Out" (1987), "Armageddon" (1998) and "Remember the Titans" (2000). Television viewers caught Patton at action on "The Agency" (CBS 2001-03), and the hit series "24" (FOX 2001-2010). Despite years of consistent work, the private actor was able to tap into his well of shyness and depth of character to flourish in projects on both the big and small screen.
