Patrick Fischler has been all over our televisions these last few years. He was a recurring character in everything from "Lost"—when some of the characters time traveled back to the 1970s—to "Southland."

Currently, you can see him as a hotel manager on Showtime's pot-ty sitcom "Weeds." He's also currently appearing in TNT's "Dark Blue" and Fox's "Lie To Me." And he was in episodes of many more great series that are big favorites in our house: "Pushing Daisies," "Burn Notice," "Star Trek Enterprise" and even "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr." with Bruce Campbell.

Patrick is married to a beautiful rising actress, Lauren Bowles, who joined HBO's "True Blood" this season as a waitress and was a guest on this show just a few weeks ago. They're also new parents. Speaking of family, he even did an early episode of his sister-in-law Julia-Louis-Dreyfus's sitcom, "The New Adventures of Old Christine."

And Fischler is more than just an increasingly familiar face on TV. His film career extends from Mulholland Drive to this summer's hit Steve Carrell comedy Dinner for Schmucks. In fact, he's just back from Pittsburgh where he shot One for the Money with Katherine Heigl. Also in the can is Miss Nobody and a role in the Ayn Rand film adaptation of Atlas Shrugged.
