Trivia that mentions this person:
Community: Season 1 [2009]
  • The show's creator, Dan Harmon, was the co-founder of Channel 101. Many actors who have appeared on the show have also appeared in Channel 101, including Jack Black, Drew Carey, Rob Corddry, Chevy Chase, Donald Glover, Joel McHale, John Oliver, Patton Oswalt, and D. C. Pierson.
    Blade: Trinity [2004]
  • Having just been saved by the Nightstalkers, Blade ridicules his rescuers as "rookies" and asks them if they think of the vampire hunt as a "sitcom". At that moment, the camera cuts to Patton Oswalt, who had been a cast member of the sitcom [The King of Queens] for several years. In addition, Ryan Reynolds was one of the stars of [Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place] and Jessica Biel played one of the daughters in [7th Heaven].
  • According to Patton Oswalt, the production was so troubled that Wesley Snipes refused to speak to David S. Goyer and often would not come out of his trailer. Wesley Snipes and Kris Kristofferson, who at the time had become good friends after working on the two previous Blade-installments, were reportedly unhappy with this movie and with David S. Goyer's script decisions. They felt that too many new characters were added to the universe, and that Blade did not need any sidekicks besides Whistler.
    Parks and Recreation: Season 5 [2012]
  • For his character's filibuster in {Article Two}, Patton Oswalt improvised an eight-minute monologue linking Disney's [Star Wars] and Marvel movie franchises. The entire uncut take appears as an extra on the Season 5 DVD set.
    Knives Out [2019]
  • Patton Oswalt contacted Rian Johnson after the film opened to ask if the needle drop of [?] Gordon Lightfoot's {"Sundown"} at (1:21:47) was an intentional reference. Apparently the song is (possibly) about a groupie Lightfoot had experience with named [?] Cathy Smith who's best known for being the one who gave [?] John Belushi a fatal injection of heroin and cocaine in 1982. "And Patton, who is brilliant in his thinking in terms of 3D chess is like 'was that a crazy reference to Marta?'"
