Tony nominee Patrick Wilson will star in the new sci-fi dramedy Space Station 76, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The cast also includes Broadway alum Jerry O'Connell and Matt Bomer, Liv Tyler, Marisa Coughlan, Kali Rocha and Kylie Rogers.
Directed and written by Jack Plotnick, the movie is described as "being set in a 1970s version of the future." Tyler plays a new assistant captain at a space station who clashes with the crew. Wilson will play the angry and distraught captain, while Bomer will take on the role of a technician with a robotic limb.
Wilson most recently appeared on Broadway opposite Katie Holmes in the 2008 revival of All My Sons. He earned two consecutive Tony Award nominations for his roles in Oklahoma! and The Full Monty. His additional theater credits include Barefoot in the Park, Something Good and The Gershwins’ Fascinating Rhythm. His film and TV credits include Watchmen, Little Children, The Phantom of the Opera, A Gifted Man, Young Adult, Morning Glory and Angels in America.
Bomer is best known for his role on USA Network’s White Collar. He also starred in the hit summer movie Magic Mike and is prepping to play Andrew Rannells' ex on The New Normal. In 2011 Bomer appeared in the starry one-night-only reading of Dustin Lance Black's Prop 8-themed play, 8, and recently guest starred on Glee. He also signed on for Ryan Murphy’s big-screen adaption of the Tony Award-winning drama The Normal Heart.
O'Connell made his Broadway debut in Seminar. His film and TV credits include the new Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane, Stand By Me and Can't Hardly Wait.
