Biography

The second of three sons of Broadway star Jack Cassidy and Oscar-winner Shirley Jones, Patrick Cassidy followed in his parents' footsteps in a career that has encompassed the stage and screen. Tall (6'2"), lanky, with blond hair blue eyes and a dazzling smile, he made his TV acting debut in the cautionary NBC movie "Angel Dusted" in 1981. That same year, Cassidy made his Broadway debut replacing Rex Smith as the male ingenue Frederick in the revisionary take on Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance". His pleasant voice and personable presence quickly won him many fans, although he was still overshadowed by his elder siblings and their status as teen idols. In 1983, Cassidy made his TV series debut as a star baseball player with a beautiful wife (a pre-fame Sharon Stone) and a psychological problem (he was a bedwetter!) in the short-lived NBC drama "Bay City Blues".

Bonus Trivia

.

On his looks, Patrick Cassidy told InTheater (July 5, 1999): "I've never thought of myself as a hunk; you're given what you're given. God made me 6'2" and 180 pounds, but I've always though of myself as a character actor. That's what's in my gut. I understand those roles better than the traditional leading man."

.

"I'm really waiting for someone to revive "She Loves Me" so I can play my father's role. Another one I'd like to try is "The Music Man". My mother was pregnant when she did the movie of it with Robert Preston, but no one knew she was. She told me that at one point, when they were singing the duet on the footbridge, she was to kiss Preston--and I chose that moment to kick."Preston jumped back and said. 'What's that?' And my mother answered, 'That's just Patrick Cassidy making himself known.'" --Cassidy quoted in Daily News, September 6, 2000.
