"Morning Glory"
In a recent interview, Patrick made these comments about his next project, "Morning Glory" which stars Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdam, and Jeff Goldblum:

"That's actually about being behind the scenes of a television show. So, it's very funny. When I met the director, he knew my history, my connection to news anchors and he asked me, 'Does this read true? And I said, yeah but there are a few things.'" Wilson said. "He thought it was very funny. I said, 'Well you asked! I grew up around the business!"
