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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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...
