Leo Fitzpatrick[1] (born July 25, 1977)[2] is an American actor and co-director of the Marlborough Chelsea gallery.[3]

Career[edit]

He was discovered at age 14 by director Larry Clark at Washington Square Park in New York City, skateboarding. Fitzpatrick was trying to perform certain skating tricks, and every time he was unsuccessful, he would scream and curse. Clark cast him in the movie Kids and later in his follow-up feature, Bully.[4]

He has appeared in numerous films since his work with Clark, including Storytelling and City of Ghosts. After finishing Storytelling, he was cast in the Robert Redford vehicle The Last Castle (2001). Two days before filming was to begin, he was in Los Angeles and was leaving a friend's party and was hit by a drunk driver. His leg suffered severe nerve and muscle damage, and he was unable to walk for a month and had to go through physical therapy. He was dropped from The Last Castle as a result.

In 2000, he appeared in Bam Margera's CKY2K. He also appeared in CKY3 in 2001. From 2002–2004, he starred on the HBO series The Wire as Johnny Weeks and followed that up with a string of guest roles on several television series including My Name Is Earl, Carnivale and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.[5]

In 2010, Fitzpatrick appeared in FX's TV series Sons of Anarchy. In 2013, he starred alongside Bryan Cranston in the film Cold Comes the Night. In 2015, he appeared in the Season 2 finale of Broad City as the runaway son of Patricia Clarkson's character.

Personal life[edit]

Fitzpatrick has said that some people have harassed him because of the character he played in Kids, believing it was a documentary instead of fiction.[1]

Fitzpatrick has been in a relationship with creative director Chrissie Miller since 2008. They welcomed their first child, named Otis Miller, on February 26, 2016. The couple were married on March 3, 2018 in New York City.
