Patrick Wilson has quickly emerged as one of the hottest acting talents in years. His unique blend of talent and understated charm has endeared him to critics and audiences alike.

Wilson has had the opportunity to show his acting range in several high profile projects: he starred in and received a Golden Globe nomination for Angels in America, directed by Mike Nichols for HBO. In this 2004 Golden Globe recipient for best miniseries, Wilson stars opposite Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, Mary Louise Parker and Emma Thompson. He went on to start opposite Jason Patric, Dennis Quaid and Billy Bob Thorton in The Alamo, directed by John Lee Hancock.

The role garnered Wilson rave reviews from critics and he received several award nominations, including a Tony nomination for Leading Actor in a Musical, Drama Desk Nomination, Drama League Award, and an Outer Critic's Circle Nomination for this role. Time Out New York voted Patrick's role as "one of the best performances of 2000."

Wilson first earned attention from New York audiences in the Off-Broadway musical adaptation Bright Lights, Big City. His role earned him a Drama Desk nomination and a Drama League Award. Soon after, Wilson starred in the Broadway musical Fascinating Rhythm, a revue of George and Ira Gershwin songs, which also garnered him a Drama League Award.
