Actor on the rise, Patrick Cage, can currently be seen appearing on the award winning, HBO sci-fi thriller series, Westworld, alongside Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, and Ed Harris.
Based on the 1973 Michael Crichton book of the same name, the series takes place in a futuristic amusement park intended for rich vacationers who are looked after by robotic hosts. The dark odyssey follows the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Patrick is introduced in season two as Phil, a technician who is dragged into a chaos-filled journey by “Dolores Abernathy” (Wood).
In addition to Westworld, Patrick has recently been seen on NBC’s hit drama series, This Is Us, and also on Jane the Virgin, Criminal Minds, and Rosewood. On the film front, he appeared in the short film, Life Event, which was released on Issa Rae’s #ShortFilmSundays YouTube channel.
