Patrick is the first born to Bruce Fugit, an electrical engineer, and Jan Clark-Fugit, a dance teacher; he has a brother, Colin, and sister, Jocelyn. Patrick went to East High School, and was diagnosed with ADHD, along with many other children in those years. When he was in seventh grade, he was the shoemaker in the school production of “The Twelve Dancing Princesses”, which is a Brother’s Grimm fairy tale originally published in 1812. He started skateboarding when he was 15, which would later help him in his acting career.
Before making his professional debut, Patrick started a band with his friend David Fetzer, called Mushman, and also studied flamenco guitar.
He made his debut in the horror film “Legion of Fire: Killer Ants” in 1998, and then made his breakthrough as William Miller in the comedy drama “Almost Famous” (2000), starring Billy Crudup and Kate Hudson. The particular role put him on the Hollywood map, and won him several awards from film festivals, including Chicago Film Critics Association Award in the category Most Promising Actor. Then in 2002, he featured in the comedy-drama “Spun”, with Jason Schwartzman and John Leguizamo, while two years later he portrayed Patrick in the comedy-drama “Saved!”, with Jena Malone, Mandy Moore and Macaulay Culkin. Patrick continued with film roles, subsequently appearing in the horror “Dead Birds” (2004), then he had the lead role in the fantasy drama “Wristcutters: A Love Story” (2006), and appeared in the family comedy “We Bought a Zoo” in 2011, with Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Thomas Haden Church in the lead roles, which helped his net worth to rise.
However, his career then fell into a slump, but he managed to revive it with the role of Officer James Gilpin in the mystery drama “Gone Girl” in 2014, and continued with the role of Rich in the thriller “Queen of Earth”, starring Elisabeth Moss and Katherine Waterston, which increased his net worth. In recent years, Patrick started portraying Kyle Barnes in the TV horror series “Outcast” (2016-2017), and will portray Samuel Sussicran in the drama film “A Name Without a Place”, which is currently in post-production and scheduled for 2019 release.
Regarding his personal life, Patrick tends to keep details about his life hidden from the public, therefore, not even any rumours are available about him in the media, although back in 2012 he was in a relationship with actress Megalyn Echikunwoke.
He is an avid motorcycle fan, and often rides with his father.
I always related most to Steve McQueen because he was more of an outcast than Robert Redford or Paul Newman.
It's a very enticing, very seductive place, but once you get to know what L.A.'s really like, you don't want to live there.
I had an agent in Salt Lake City, but acting was more like a hobby.
My dad has a huge vinyl collection downstairs, but I was never too interested. The only CD I had was by Adam Sandler.
If you think you're going to work with Cameron Crowe and not get into his music, you're crazy. But he doesn't force it on you. He doesn't force anything on you, which really makes things easier.
The day after I got an agent, I got called in for a role in a TV movie called 'Legion Of Fire: Killer Ants.'
One day, you're a nobody, and the next, you're in a movie that everybody is talking about. But Hollywood has a way of knocking you back down to Earth.
Oh, I'm quite the impulse buyer. Most of what I buy is stuff for my Jeep, 'cause it breaks down a lot.
There are these girls who live in Maryland: they're the Patrick Super Fan Club Association of America. They've sent me videotapes of themselves just eating and talking about Hanson, and a loaf of bread that was really moldy by the time it got here.
