Production of the Year Award winner "Life Could Be a Dream," the YouTube hit "The Green Room," and the world premiere of "Summer of Love," for which his performance earned an LA Stage Scene Award.

It was Willett's role of "Lionel" in "United States of Tara," that truly launched his career into high gear. Originally cast for only two episodes, the creators and writers of the show, including Diablo Cody and Steven Spielberg, were instantly hooked by his instinctive sense of comic timing. Playing opposite Kier Gilchrist and directed by the likes of Penny Marshall, Willett's portrayal of the snarky and outspoken gay advocate became the springboard for Gilchrist's character, Marshall, to come out of the closet. It also created a fan base of international proportions, and led to a very successful two seasons with the series.  

In 2013, Willett's career continued to grow. He lead an all-star cast in Darren Stein's feature film "G.B.F" which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
