Patrick Duncan

Patrick Duncan My full name is Patrick Coleman Duncan. I am an actor/writer/producer/director/editor (listed chronologically from my adoption of the disciplines). I live in “The Southland” a.k.a. the “Left Coast” and feel very much at home here.

I am from Louisville, KY originally where I was a charter member of the Walden Theatre, a preparatory training program for professional bound actors. It was my great pleasure during that time to play Caliban in “The Tempest” and Algernon in “The Importance of Being Earnest.” From there I attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX where I received a B.F.A. in Theatre Arts. While at SMU I fulfilled a life long dream of stepping into the shoes of Groucho Marx by playing Gordon Miller in the Theatre SMU production of “Room Service.”

After college I returned to Louisville and taught for a year at Walden Theatre. I lived in New York City from 1990 to 2000 during which time I appeared on “Guiding Light.” On stage I appeared in several productions written and overseen by Tony Award Winner William Hauptman, notably playing Floyd in “Domino Courts” and Chigger in “Gillette” both for director Peter Dobbins of “Storm Theatre.”

My filmmaking career also began in NYC with a short film “So, What’s In Jericho?” After completing “… Jericho?” I moved to California and wrote, directed and appeared in several short films including “Hollywood the Hard Way,” “The Shabbos Bigfoot,” and “A Mock Time: A ‘Star Trek’ Wedding” all available on my Youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/PCDuncan

Commercially, I appeared as “Frank,” the obnoxious coworker in the Starbucks commercial “Sticking” (the one where the red-haired woman gets things stuck to her- that’s me at the end stuck to her back). I also co-founded a filmmaker support group called the Los Angeles Filmmakers Network and served as the programmer coordinator for the Angelika Corporation’s NewFilmmakersLA screening series.

As an editor I assisted on the Feature Documentary “Carbon Nation” and edited the narrative feature “Assisting Venus” starring Michael Steger and Julian Sands.

Currently, I will be appearing as Dobson’s Father in the web series “Project Hollywood.”
