Robert Patrick


  1. Kurt Russell, Tango & Cash, 1989.  Sylvester Stallone was Raymond Tango – without question. But who would he accept as his equally frame cop pardner, Gabriel Cash? After Patrick Swayze ran (to solo billing in Road House), the list was long… Patrick, Michael Biehn, Pierce Brosnan, Kevin Costner,  Richard Gere, Mel Gibson, Don Johnson, Michael Keaton, Ray Liotta, Liam Neeson, Michael Nouri, Gary Oldman, Bill Paxton, Ron Perlman, Dennis Quaid, Gary Sinise.  Plus three future Sly co-stars: Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis and James Woods. They all lost out on the debatable pleasure of four directors! From the Russian Andrei Konchalovsky to, secretly, Stallone..!
  2. Michael Biehn, The Divide, Canada-Germany-US, 2010.    “The lucky ones died in  the [nuclear] blast,” said the poster. Plus those (Patrick, Melissa George) who missed the original project – blown off by Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano. (Eyjafjallajökull was the name of a French comedy (!) in 2013. None of the public could pronounce it). 
  3. Bruce McGill, Rizzoli & Isles, TV, 2010-2016.   Tom Atkins, Powers Boothe, Miguel Ferrer, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Fisher Stevens and three  Reservoir Dogs – Messers Pink, Blonde and Orange aka Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth – were in the frame for Detective Rizzoli’s former partner, Vince Korsak in  this latest take on Cagney & Lacey. Oh,  and  in his sixth move, Paxton The Dog played the pooch called… Jo Friday!
