Patrick Wilson: I would never abandon Broadway. I do want to expand my horizons with more film work, but I'm interested in good roles, wherever they may be. I want to do both, so I will… unless I never get a job again, in which case I'll go back to my first career choice: chimney sweep.
Patrick Wilson: All the available pavement we have is being used for parking of the aircraft.
Patrick Wilson : This man took it upon himself to mete out life sentences upon those boys without any of the protections he's had in this court. Is two life sentences too much to ask for in exchange? If not for him, for who?
Patrick Wilson: It was a terribly emotional case for both sides in this matter. The jury had some tough decisions to make....But I hope they [Peterson family] do get closure and I hope this does help.
Patrick Wilson: It is your whole life in there. And you can pass because of the smallest thing, or not pass because of the smallest thing.
Patrick Wilson: We are a family, the tribe, we need to come together and be united and have a vision for this tribe.
Patrick Wilson: It's an amazingly liberating thing to be able ... to take your clothes off and not worry about it, because it's not about your body, it's not anything like that, ... (I)t's nice to go out there and have people screaming regardless of whether you look like a Chippendale (male dancer) or not.
Patrick Wilson: Robert DeNiro has been trying to get it done for a few years, and hopefully the movie happens and I'll be in it. I've got my plate full right now, so we'll see what happens.
Patrick Wilson: He's painted as this big, swashbuckling kind of hero, but Travis didn't consider himself a hero. For Travis, he always thought a leader was someone who puts on fancy clothes. He finally figures out who he is in his last days.(on his character Col. William Travis in "The Alamo")
Patrick Wilson: I would never 'abandon' Broadway. I do want to expand my horizons and do more film work, but I'm interested in good roles, wherever they may be. I will always come back, even if I went to LA for a job. I refuse to acknowledge the gap between theater and film. I want to do both. On both coasts. So I will...unless I never get a job again, in which case I'll go back to my first career choice: chimney sweep.
Patrick Wilson: To be in a movie or a play which doesn't require me to take off my clothes. Unless, of course, I don't get another job... In which case I'll be half-naked and whole-heartedly depressed for the rest of my career.(on his 2003 resolution)
Patrick Wilson: Six years ago, when I moved [to New York], I said the only things I wanted to do was originate the lead in a show, and if it was a musical, then do the recording, and get nominated for a Tony. So now that I've done all that, I don't know what I'm going to do. Maybe I should dream higher.
