PATRICK WILSON (Lt. Col. William Barret Travis) has quickly emerged as one of the industry's hottest acting talents. Endeared to critics (Entertainment Weekly's 2001 ‘It' List) and audiences (one of People Magazine's Most Eligible Bachelors of 2000) alike, Wilson captured acclaim and a pair of consecutive Tony Award nominations (for Lead Actor in a Musical) for his starring roles in the hit Broadway musicals "The Full Monty” and Trevor Nunn's recent revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Oklahoma.” For the latter, in which he portrayed Curly, Wilson also won his third Drama League Award as well as Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations.

Born in Virginia, Wilson grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, where his father is a longtime TV news anchor and his mother works as a voice teacher. A singer-songwriter himself, Patrick received his BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh before heading to New York to begin his career on the stage. Following graduation, Wilson worked almost continuously in a string of increasingly important plays and musicals, and won his big break when he landed the leading role of Billy Bigelow in Cameron Macintosh's national touring company revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel.”

Wilson first earned attention from New York audiences in the off-Broadway musical adaptation of "Bright Lights, Big City,” for which he won his first Drama League honor and a Drama Desk nomination. Soon after, Wilson starred in the Broadway musical "Fascinating Rhythm,” a revue of the Gershwin's songbook, which also garnered him another Drama League Award. He also played the boards in California, starring in "The Cider House Rules” in L.A. and "Sweet Bird of Youth” at La Jolla. With aspirations toward movies and television, Wilson recently co-starred in Mike Nichols' screen adaptation of Tony Kushner's epic play, "Angels in America,” playing the role of Joe Pitt opposite Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson and Al Pacino in the HBO drama premiering in November. He was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance. He will next be seen opposite Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum in Joel Schumacher's movie adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, "Phantom of the Opera,” due out this Christmas from Warner Brothers.
