Ever since I saw him in Watchmen, I’ve really grown to like Patrick Wilson. He brought something to the character of Nite Owl that I actually found to be lacking in the source material, and he wound up giving one of my favourite performances in the movie. Wilson has been acting since 2001, when he made his film debut in the movie My Sister’s Wedding – a film that was never released. He played secondary roles in The Alamo and The Phantom of the Opera in 2004, and his next two roles in Hard Cardy and Little Children earned him much acclaim. It was 2009’s Watchmen that launched him into the mainstream as a leading man, and since Watchmen he has appeared in the films The A-Team, Insidious, Young Adult, Prometheus, The Conjuring and Insidious Chapter 2. Looks like he enjoys his genre movies! My kinda guy. Patrick Wilson turns 40 today.
