Patrick Wilson started trending earlier today when a user (@Skoog) tweeted about Wilson and his low key Hollywood status: “the mf really said i’m gonna be in a million movies but absolutely refuse to be famous.” The Emmy nominated actor responded by writing, “Dammit. My plan has been thwarted.
Social media and even some celebs responded to the viral tweet and praised Wilson’s many roles in films and shows such as Watchmen, Hard Candy, Insidious, The Conjuring series, Angeles In America, The Phantom of the Opera movie, his Tony-nominated Broadway work in 2000’s The Full Monty and 2002’s Oklahoma! Some people even confused Patrick Wilson with Will Arnett.

Can Patrick Wilson and I be related? We’re probably not, there are a lot of Wilsons, but I would like to be related to somebody who seems nice— Mara “Get Rid of the Nazis” Wilson (@MaraWilson) August 31, 2020
I worked with Patrick Wilson once, and during a break we passed by a couple of people in the lobby of a building. On our way past, we overheard one of them say to the other "I think that guy's in movies, but I don't know his name...". PW turned and said "Story of my life, man" 😂— Emily Ann Scott (@Emascott92) August 31, 2020
