Biography

It would have been easy for actor Robert Patrick to become a cinematic one-hit wonder after his breakout role in James Cameron's blockbuster sequel "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" (1991). As the liquid metal killing machine sent from the future to do battle with Arnold Schwarzenegger, his performance was as terrifying as it was understated. It was also just the type of iconic role that an actor could get pigeon-holed by. Pragmatic in his choice of projects, Patrick continued onward as relentlessly as his T-1000 character, taking whatever work came his way. Following "Judgment Day," there were low-budget thrillers like 1994's "The Cool Surface," in addition to roles in more respectable features such as "Cop Land" (1997) alongside Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone. Patrick managed to land some choice television jobs as well, performing admirably in recurring roles on "The Sopranos (HBO, 1998-2006) and as Agent Doggett on "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002). Later big screen appearances would find him collaborating with heavy hitters like director Clint Eastwood in "Flags of Our Fathers" (2006), and leading man George Clooney in "The Men Who Stare at Goats" (2009). With such a diverse body of work, the ever-employable Patrick would gain the reputation of being one of the most dedicated and consistently strong working actors in film and television.
