His perfect ass and giant cock should've ensured him a longer shelf life. Why did it all go south?
I don't know, but i think he's one of the most handsome men on earth. He should have had Hugh Jackman's career. He dances, he sings, he's naturally masculine, he can play a superhero? Maybe he just didn't get the right project to sear him in the public's mind?
He was just on a highly talked about episode of "Girls"
Well, he starred in the TV drama "A Gifted Man" recently, but unfortunately it was cancelled. He was wonderful in "The Phantom of the Opera".
I wanted to like "A Gifted Man," but I didn't. His looks are quickly going south.
The guy in the 25th Anniversary Phamtom made a hotter Raoul
I don't think he is interested in being a star. It is okay to just be a good actor.
He has a shitty agent. He should be more well-known.
He was perfect in Little Children. I have 2 theories on him. Theory #1 is that he is very choosy about parts and only picks things that speak to him. Theory #2 is that he is tough to cast. He's really good looking, but he doesn't pop off the screen.
Wasn't he just recently in Young Adult, that Charlize Theron movie?
He's handsome but bland. He's a decent actor but not great. His ass used to be rather nice, but it's gone south, so to speak.
Talent aside, it's hard for me to see his appeal. He so bland-looking, and that receding hairline doesn't help. Not my type, I guess.
He would make a perfect addition to "The Good Wife."
He is great in "Angels in America. " You have to be hungry for fame and willing to sell, sell, sell to be a big star.
Lens Dunham happened, that's what.
The CBS show where he played a slick doctor with visions of his dead wife would have been a great tv movie but it had no teeth to run as a series... bad choice for him.
Isn't already on the Good Wife?
He was born to play Zaza in the movie-musical version of La Cage aux Folles. Maybe someone will read this and cast him.
It's the DL curse: hardly the first time that a DL fave never lives up to expectations of stardom.
I just watched LITTLE CHILDREN again on cable. I enjoyed it more this time. I think one of the reasons it works (and many of Wilson's other roles, like EVENING or WATCHMEN don't) is precisely because he is a good-looking blank onscreen. It was perfect casting. And of course, his body is spectacular in this one.
He should go back and do theatre. He has some impressive credits there, and appears to be liked and respected on Broadway.
R17, an old thread precisely about the topic of Patrick Wilson playing Zaza in the movie-musical version of La Cage aux Folles.
He's trolling the bottom of the barrel by letting Lena Dunham have her way with him on Girls. Watching them go at it was just yucky. I had to switch the channel. That show of hers gives her the opportunity to fantasy fuck anyone and everyone she would never be able to attract in real life. I can't make it through a full episode of that shitty show and won't try again.
It was totally unrealistic that someone as hot as he is (even if he is losing his looks) would find anything attractive in that tattooed lump of dough that is Lens Dunham. She is repulsive to straight men, gay men and lesbians.
He needs better representation, STAT.
He wasn't even the hottest guy in the A-TEAM movie when he should have been (Bradley Cooper was) or in PROMETHEUS (Michael Fassbinder was). There's something very wrong with that.
The green card marriage made the gays lose interest.
Green card marriage? huh? he married an American...no?
What does WHET mean/stand for?
What ever happened to?
but the DL tradition is to put WHET instead of WEHT
[quote]That show of hers gives her the opportunity to fantasy fuck anyone and everyone she would never be able to attract in real life.
Isn't the male version of this the reason there have been innumerable movies and TV shows where a gorgeous woman is with an ugly man? Every time I've watched Casablanca, I've wondered why anybody thought Ingrid Bergman would want that pockmarked buck-toothed ugly little gnome.
He is way too bland, but he still has a good career. He is a supporting player and that's fine for him it seems.
r26 the difference is that women are not as looks oriented as men.
I disagree, R28. Women are accustomed to having their preferences ignored but that doesn't mean they don't have them.
My women friends don't like those movies where the fat ugly guy gets the most beautiful woman in town, the guy version of romcoms. The only reason Jennifer Aniston ends up with a drunk piece of shit with a busted face like Vince Vaughn or Gerard Butler is because male producers think that's the only way a man will see those movies.
But in life women look for things other than a pretty face....security, protection, supportive, emotionally available
men just like a pretty face
That's probably true, R30, but movies and TV shows are fantasy, not what women are willing to settle for.
R26 Please do not insult my friend Paul Henreid like that!
You know, one of you cunts COULD post a goddamned picture. RUDE!!
Quite big head. Not hijjus, but certainly far from the handsomest man who ever lived.
"His perfect ass and giant cock should've ensured him a longer shelf life."
Yes, OP, because a perfect ass and a giant cock make all the difference for an actor.
He should win an Emmy for playing a man who would actually want to fuck Lena Dunham.
I thought I was going to vomit on the couch during the ping pong scene.
I think he's goodlooking in a very "every day guy" kind of way. He's attractive but blends in like a hot suburban husband/daddy. He's the hunk next door doing his lawn who all the soccer fraus drool over and peek through the window at.
Probably why he was perfect in Little Children.
His wife Dagmara Dominczyk is from Poland.
She moved to New York when she was seven because her father was a political exile, so it's possible she was a citizen. Also possible she wasn't.
He's so bland as to be forgettable looking. I would never remember who he is or what he looks like if DL didn't keep bringing him up.
That ass is beyond amazing. What I wouldn't give to be her. NSFW.
[quote] Isn't the male version of this the reason there have been innumerable movies and TV shows where a gorgeous woman is with an ugly man?
This actually happens in real life all the time. Rich old guys get young beautiful women. Billy Joel, Mick Jagger. Politicians get women -- look at Newt Gingrich. That pasty butterball has had 3 wives.
But when was the last time you saw a Lena Dunham type wearing a toddler sun suit, flab hanging out, hair greasy, etc, with a hot guy IRL?
DL is always complaining about "hot daddies" with "fat fraus," r43.
Anyway, r29/r31 has it right. One of the most egregious examples of this in recent memory is "Knocked up", where Seth Rogan plays a fat slob with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. The audience is supposed to accept that a beautiful woman not only willingly sleeps with him, but falls in love with him. Ugly losers all over the globe ate it up.
If we can accept the str8 male fantasies that Hollywood churns out all the time, maybe we should extend that generosity to women every once in while.
how do we know he has a giant cock? you would think a giant cock would get him at least b list roles in a list movies.
Anyone see his feet?
If there are photos, could you please post. TIA.
He's probably still scrubbing himself clean from the shame of having to act like he desired that hideous sow.
I think of him sort of like I do Aaron Eckhart--handsome and good actors (even though Patrick is better), but not STAR quality. AE was in The Dark Knight but that didn't really translate to superstardom. I also think neither is really interested in being a big star.
That said, I'd love to see them playing lovers.
Shouldn't that be WEHT as in WhatEver Happened To?
R52, I think it's like "pron."
Datalounge traditions is WHET. Granted it reinforces the notion that Wilson claims to be HETero, but it may have been intended ironically as far as that goes.
He lived on my block in Hell's Kitchen (W. 46th b/n 9th and 10th) a decade ago. Very nice guy, and also very straight.
Did he tell you that while you were sucking his dick, R55? Or just before he started sucking yours?
I'm never attracted to blonds, but Patrick Wilson just does something to my equilibrium.
I don't get the DL fascination with Patrick Wilson. Is it the ass?
Maybe the attraction is his feet, if someone could post photos of them?
"Is it the ass?"
Is it, and if so, why?
He turns 40 this year. I like him, but it's pretty much make-or-break time for actors.
He looks older than 40, more about 45.
How do we know he's hung? It seems to me that rumor has been around for eons...just wondering where it comes from.
I love blond guys like him. He was so beautiful in Little Children. Those lips, that ass. Sigh!
In my opinion,he started fairly late to movies/tv,plus he doesn't look the same as he did when he was doing theater, particularly his hairline. It was only after he got that fixed,buffed up and starred in Angels In America that the public took notice. He got cast in some pretty high profile movies at that time (Little Children)but like someone else said,he was always out shown by his co-stars. Kate Winslet and Jackie Earl Haley-who hadnt made a film in years, got most of the attention from "Children",and the Oscar nominations. Same with Ellen Page, who got the real boost from Hard Candy.
I think Patrick is lovely adornment for any movie and is a good actor who can really shine in the right role. After all, look at the even more blandly appealing actor Jason Bateman,who was doing tv for decades until he got cast in some comedies that the public inexplicably liked. Now he's getting lead roles at 44. Or even more dramatically, look at the resurgence of Tony Goldwyn-who gained notice as the villain in Ghost but is now getting raves for his role as the amorous President on Scandal. He's now considered a sex symbol at nearly 53!! The women in my family can't get enough of him! So there's still time for Patrick. Maybe his agent should give Shonda Rhimes a call. After all,look what she did for that other Patrick ...
I tried looking for foot photos.
Couldn't find any. Does anyone have any to share?
[quote] Maybe his agent should give Shonda Rhimes a call. After all,look what she did for that other Patrick
Most excellent point, R66.
When his CBS show was cancelled, he took to twitter to complain about it- stuff like that, while seeming 'honest' or innocuous is something that sends major red flags to networks & studios... He is someone who will probably be doing 'guest appearances' for a very long time, since he is not someone with enough stature to be complaining about networks on twitter...
look for CAA (who is his current agent) to drop him soon
Oops, I closed a theatre/theater thread with this post. Anyway, to repeat:
There used to be screen caps of the night the lights didn't go out for the Full Monty final strip. Don't know if they're still out there. They show that he's hung.
And I found one, too!
[quote] Oh dear. The "Patrick Wilson Should Play Zaza" troll is one of the stranger DL personalities as of late.
True. Also, there is nothing feminine about Patrick. He's about as traditionally handsome as they come.
Just watched "Space Station 76" last week and he was surprisingly very good as alcoholic, closeted, self-loathing captain. An underrated, misunderstood film.
If there is nothing feminine about Patrick Wilson -- and I agree. Therefor, if he was offered the role of Zaza and pulled it off. It might just be a smart career move. And maybe ever get him an Oscar -- since Oscars are frequently awarded for playing against type.
If the caps exist of the night the lights did not go out, one of you has them on hard drive, find and post please.
Lucie Arnaz and Patrick Wilson in The Visit.
He is more impressed with himself than others. Also he refused to play the game and let old creepy men suck his cock.
you guys are really something. Wilson is a working actor. Nothing "went south". He was never positioned to be Tom Cruise or anything like that. And there is not a round of ugly men who have to suck you off before you can get a decent job in television.
At least not for someone in Patrick Wilson's age range
I don't know about a green card marriage, both those Polish sisters are hot!!
