Patrick J. Adams

A "master artist" according to Variety and "tour-de-force" according to Backstage, Patrick J. Adams has starred as a fraudulent lawyer, a superhero, a veteran, a pro tennis player, and dozens of other memorable characters on stage and screen. For seven seasons Adams has charmed audiences worldwide, as Mike Ross in USA's hit drama, "Suits," a role which garnered him a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination in the category of Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. In 2016, Patrick starred opposite Troian Bellisario in the Old Globe Theatre's world premiere production of Anna Ziegler's "The Last Match," earning critical praise for his performance as Tim, an incredibly talented but deeply flawed pro tennis player. He also stepped off the Waverider as 'Hourman' in The CW/Berlanti/DC action series "Legends of Tomorrow," on which he now recurs. Patrick will star in the rom-com digital series "Pillow Talk," executive produced by "Catastrophe"'s Sharon Horgan, and the indie feature comedy "Room For Rent," alongside comedy luminaries Brett Gelman, Mark Little, Stephanie Weir & Mark McKinney. With Zoe Saldana & Jason Isaacs, Adams starred in the 2014 television miniseries "Rosemary's Baby" directed by Agnieska Holland. Additional television credits include Michael Mann and David Milch's acclaimed series "Luck" opposite Dustin Hoffman and Michael Gambon, season two of the hit series "Orphan Black" opposite Tatiana Maslany, "Lost," "Friday Night Lights," "Pretty Little Liars," "N.C.I.S.," "Lie To Me" and "Flash Forward." Adams co-starred in films including the hit comedy "Old School," directed by Todd Phillips and 2009 Berlin Film Festival competitor "Rage" directed by internationally renowned filmmaker Sally Potter, in which he appeared alongside Judi Dench, Jude Law, Dianne Wiest and Steve Buscemi. Additionally, Adams starred in indie films such as, "The Waterhole," 2009 Slamdance entry "Weather Girl," "6 Month Rule" directed by Blayne Weaver and "Car Dogs" opposite Academy Award winning actress Octavia Spencer. Adams maintains strong ties to Southern California theatre. He produced and starred in writer Bill Cain's ("House of Cards") acclaimed production of "9 Circles" at the Bootleg Theatre in Los Angeles for which he was awarded a Backstage Garland Award for Best Performance in a Play and nominated for a 2012 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle award for Lead Performance. He is a member of the Ojai Playwrights Conference, starring in new works by established and developing playwrights. Cain's "Equivocation" was developed at Ojai and Adams subsequently starred in the celebrated Geffen Playhouse production, which was honored with the 2010 Best Production at the LA Ovation Awards. He made his professional stage debut in the landmark, West Coast premiere of Edward Albee's "The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?" at The Mark Taper Forum, which also took home Best Play at the Ovation Awards. Adams also produced and directed a hit revival of "Marat/Sade," for which he accepted Best Production at the L.A. Weekly Theatre Awards. Originally from Toronto, Adams is a graduate of the University of Southern California.
