Patrick Fischler stars in "One for the Money," opposite Katherine Heigl and Jason O'Mara, as Vinnie Plum.

Actor Patrick Fischler is a part of Los Angeles/Hollywood history … He is the Patrick for whom famed landmark and celebrity eatery Patrick's Roadhouse on PCH is named. Fischler received much praise for his performance as Jimmy Barrett on the Emmy-winning series "Mad Men" and as part of The Dharma Initiative, he was integral to the final episodes of "Lost" in Season 6. He recurs as Detective Kenny No-Gun in TNT's drama series, "Southland." Recently, Fischler starred in the Jay Roach comedy "Dinner for Schmucks" with Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd.

Fischler, who has guest starred in numerous television series including "Burn Notice," "Bones," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Lie to Me," and many more, is no stranger to feature film. His first job was "the guy who pushed the elevator button" in "Speed." He is constantly recognized as "the guy who had the dream" in "Mulholland Drive." He also played the Deputy District Attorney in "The Black Dahlia" with Hilary Swank and Scarlett Johanssen.

Patrick's restaurateur father bought a 6-stool hotdog stand on the beach near Malibu and named it after his then 5-year-old son. Then he expanded and expanded. Patrick's Roadhouse was (and still is) the place famous faces come for great food and unpretentious atmosphere, and has been highlighted in publications from Time Magazine to the Los Angeles Times.

Fischler was born and raised in Los Angeles. His parents introduced him to films and the theater, which inspired his love of acting. He spent his freshman and sophomore years of high school living with his mother in her native Johannesburg, South Africa, where he attended American International High School. It was his first exposure to the world outside of Southern California; seeing the political and personal upheaval of apartheid had a profound and lasting effect on him. He completed high school in Beverly Hills and moved to New York to study theater at New York University.

At NYU and Circle in the Square, Patrick worked in numerous productions, including the lead in Arthur Miller's "After the Fall" (his first acting milestone). He also met his future wife, fellow theater student, actress Lauren Bowles. These two best friends did not marry until ten years later in Florence, Italy. Patrick's hobby is cooking and he doesn't mind letting you know he is really good at it … breakfast, lunch and dinner. He is also the "go-to" guy for eating out. This restaurant kid has tried them all.

Patrick and Lauren, who is a series regular on HBO's "True Blood," are proud parents of Fia Lucille Fischler. Together they also raise Donna, a mutt rescue from South Africa.
