Hailed for his intense characterizations in hard-edged independent films "After Dark, My Sweet" (1990) and "Rush" (1991), Jason Patric's best screen performances were little-seen outside of film festival and critics' circles, while his occasional forays into big-budget movies were met with widespread disappointment. In his twenties, the sexy, brooding Patric was pegged as the "next big thing" in films like "Solarbabies" (1986) and "The Lost Boys" (1987), as well as made a bit of a tabloid splash in 1991 by running off with America's Sweetheart, Julia Roberts, after she broke off her engagement to his close friend, Kiefer Sutherland. When it came to his craft, however, there was no mistaking his intensity and sense of purpose as he began pursuing more character-driven dramas. Like his contemporary, Sean Penn, Patric showed a penchant for downplaying his good looks and showbiz lineage in favor of an enigmatic reclusiveness and dedicated artist's lifestyle. Perhaps because of this - aided, no doubt, by his participation in the massive critical and commercial flop that was "Speed 2: Cruise Control" (1997) - Patric's initial buzz never materialized into the string of critical acclaim Penn would go on to enjoy, despite efforts to limit his big-budget appearances in favor of more serious historical pictures like "Geronimo" (1993) and "The Alamo" (2004), or the controversial "Sleepers" (1996). Though he occasionally surfaced over the next decade to give noted performances in indie films "Your Friends and Neighbors" (1998) and "Expired" (2007), he never seemed interested in fulfilling the expectations of his promising start.

Bonus Trivia


In 2004, Patric was arrested on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest in Austin, TX, and was involved in a physical confrontation with the arresting officer. Patric claimed the charges were false and that the officer assaulted him. The prosecuting attorney's office later dropped the charges.
