Patrick St. Esprit
Patrick St. Esprit has a long history of playing men in uniform. These include small parts on television, such as his recurring role as Col. Bootney on "JAG," the action/drama series about the men and women of the Judge Advocate General's Corps (in short, military lawyers). St. Esprit has also donned the uniform for the big screen, including two outings under the direction of Paul Greengrass. In Greengrass's critically acclaimed "United 93," the true story of the heroes who brought down the plane in Pennsylvania on September 11th, St. Esprit played one of the personnel working feverishly on the ground to find out what's happening aboard the aircraft. Parts like St Esprit's showed that, while there was certainly terror for those on Flight 93, there was also a certain terror mixed with helplessness felt by those on the ground, who could do little more than watch the event unfold. St. Esprit also appeared in Greengrass's 2010 film "Green Zone," another grim (fictionalized) look at real-life issues faced by the military in Iraq. Patrick St. Esprit has shown a wider range as an actor with his role as Elliott Oswald on the biker gang series "Sons of Anarchy." As Oswald, a wealthy property owner with political aspirations but also raw, human motivations (such as justice for his raped daughter), St. Esprit has walked a captivating line between ruthlessness and sympathy.
