“God I’m tired of being afraid, afraid of war, afraid of the mask-killer.. and afraid of this goddamn suit, and how much I need it.”
“I had a book of Bible stories when I was a kid. There was a picture I’d look at twenty times every day: Jacob wrestles with the angel. I don’t really remember the story, or why the wrestling - just the picture. Jacob is young and very strong. The angel is… a beautiful man, with golden hair and wings, of course. I still dream about it. Many nights. I’m… It’s me. In that struggle. Fierce, and unfair. The angel is not human, and it holds nothing back, so how could anyone human win, what kind of a fight is that? It’s not just. Losing means your soul thrown down in the dust, your heart torn from God’s. But you can’t not lose.”

#11: Patrick Wilson
Favorite Performance: Angels in America
As I get older and continue to rewatch Angels in America, I begin to think that Patrick’s performance as Joe Pitt is the most compelling in the whole thing, and also the most underrated. This may be because Kushner himself gives up on Joe — just as many other writers give up on their most interesting, flawed characters. When I read the play I’m not sure I gave him much thought, but Patrick Wilson is the most amazing thing ever. I know I’m not doing commentary on my actor list but I wanted to say this. SORRY GUYS.
