Patrick Raymond Fugit (born October 27, 1982) is an American actor, known for his roles in the films Almost Famous (2000), White Oleander (2002), Saved! (2004) and Wristcutters: A Love Story (2007). He also starred in the Cinemax series Outcast.


Early life

Fugit was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. His mother, Jan Clark-Fugit, is a dance teacher and his father, Bruce is an electrical engineer. Fugit is the oldest of three children, he has a younger sister, Jocelyn and a younger brother, Colin. Fugit attended East High School, where he was diagnosed with ADHD. Fugit appeared in a school production of The Twelve Dancing Princesses as the shoemaker, while he was at grade seven. He has been a skateboarder since he was fifteen.


Fugit and his best friend, David Fetzer, formed a folk/rock band "Mushman", in which Fugit plays the guitar and sometimes sings. Fugit studies flamenco guitar, which he played on the Cavedoll song "MAYDAY" and his song "Brennan's Theme" for the ending scene in Wristcutters: A Love Story.

Fugit played a young rock-fan-turned-reporter in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous and claimed that his knowledge of 1970s rock music was nil ("I actually thought Led Zeppelin was one person"). Jake Gyllenhaal replaced him for the title role for Donnie Darko. Fugit played a sweetly geeky, aspiring comic book artist in White Oleander (2002) and a naive drug addict in the indie dark comedy Spun (2003). His next film, Saved! (2004), was a satirical look at the religious right in high school. Fugit's character, a cool young pastor's son named Patrick Wheeler, was originally supposed to be a surfer, but he was changed to a skateboarder due to Fugit's skateboarding experience.

In 2005, he co-starred in The Amateurs, about a sleepy town that comes together to film a porno. Fugit and Olivia Wilde starred in Bickford Shmeckler's Cool Ideas and House, M.D.. In 2007, he starred with Shannyn Sossamon in Wristcutters: A Love Story, and played Evra Von in Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (2009).

Fugit currently stars in the television series Outcast.
