Will Patton stars in "Falling Skies" on TNT as Captain Weaver.

Will Patton has worked extensively in theater and film. He can be seen in Kelly Riechardt's film festival favorite "Meeks Crossing," alongside Michelle Williams and Paul Dano. His other recent films include Antoine Fuqua's "Brooklyn's Finest"; "The Fourth Kind," with Milla Jovovich; "American Violet," with Alfre Woodard; and "Wendy and Lucy," also with Michelle Williams.

Patton's past credits include Michael Winterbottom's critically acclaimed "A Mighty Heart," starring Angelina Jolie; "Princess Ka'iulani," with Q'orianka Kilcher; and "The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond," written by Tennessee Williams. He also starred opposite John Travolta and Thomas Jane in the Lionsgate feature based on Marvel Comic's "The Punisher." Patton's other memorable roles include such features as "The Mothman Prophecies," "Remember the Titans," "Armageddon," "Gone In 60 Seconds," "Entrapment" and "The Postman," as well as "Trixie," "Breakfast of Champions" and "Jesus's Son."

Patton was directed by Martin Scorsese in "After Hours" and Nicholas Roeg in "Cold Heaven." He has starred in several independent films that have enjoyed success at the major film festivals, including "The Rapture," "In The Soup," "The Paint Job," "Toll Booth" and "The Spitfire Grill" which won the Audience Award at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival.

In 1998, Patton won the award for Best Actor at the Newport International Film Festival for his work in "OK Garage" (aka "All Revved Up"). He has blended appearances in these smaller pictures with major studio releases, such as "Inventing The Abbotts," "The Client," "Fled," "Copycat," "Desperately Seeking Susan," "A Shock to the System," "Everybody Wins" and "No Way Out."

Patton also starred for two seasons in the highly acclaimed television series "The Agency" on CBS. He was seen in Steven Spielberg's "Into The West" on TNT and played Det. Walker on CBS's "Numb3rs."

Patton has recorded more than 45 audio books, including 19 titles by James Lee Burke, the 50th anniversary release of Jack Kerouac's "On The Road," Denis Johnson's "Tree of Smoke," Al Gore's "The Assault on Reason" and Charles Frazier's "Thirteen Moons." He has also been the recipient of the Audie award for Best Male Narrator.

No stranger to theater, Patton played the leading role in Sam Shepard's "A Lie of the Mind." His performances in Richard Foreman's "What Did He See" and Shepard's "Fool For Love" earned him two prestigious Obie Awards as Best Actor. He starred in the world premiere of Don DeLillo's "Valparaiso" at the A.R.T. (American Repertory Theatre) in Boston and he was also seen heading an ensemble cast in Denis Johnson's "Shoppers Carried By Escalators into the Flames" at the V Vineyard Theatre in New York.
