Biography

Patrick Fischler is a versatile character actor who looks as if he just stepped out of a photo from the first half of the 20th century. Californian by background, he moved to Manhattan to studying acting at New York University, and later returned to Los Angeles, ready to pursue his screen career. After bit parts on TV shows, Fischler started picking up minor roles in major movies, including the 1994 adventure films "Speed" and "The Shadow." Following a small but memorable part in David Lynch's dream-like "Mulholland Drive" (2001), he became a more frequent presence on both the big and small screen. In 2008, he had a breakthrough guest stint on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007- ), where he played a callous comedian, and his winning television streak continued with a nine-episode run on the mysterious hit drama "Lost" (NBC, 2004-2010). Established as a more recognizable face, Fischler went on to a steady stream of projects, including a recurring role on the cable dramedy "Californication" (Showtime, 2007- ) and a supporting part in the action movie "2 Guns" (2013), always bringing a smart and slightly eccentric edge to his various characters.
