Jason Patric (born June 17, 1966) is an American film, television and stage actor. He is known for his roles in films such as The Lost Boys, Rush, Sleepers, Geronimo: An American Legend, Your Friends & Neighbors, Narc, The Losers, The Alamo, and Speed 2: Cruise Control. His father was actor/playwright Jason Miller and his maternal grandfather was actor Jackie Gleason.
Patric began dating actress Julia Roberts days after she canceled her wedding to Kiefer Sutherland in June 1991.Patric dated Danielle Schreiber off-and-on for approximately 10 years. During the relationship they conceived a son through in vitro fertilization. Patric and Schreiber separated in May 2012. Schreiber's attorneys argued that, under California law, Patric was a sperm donor as Schreiber and Patric had not married and the conception of the child was by artificial means, and therefore Patric has no custody rights to the son. Patric has been pursuing changes to the law that bars his parental rights. Patric then sued for parental rights over the child, but lost the case at the trial court level.The Court of Appeal of California, however, also ruled that the California Family Code did not preclude him from establishing that he was presumed a parent based on his post birth conduct. The case was sent back down to the trial court level, and in late 2014 he was recognized legally as the father of his son with the court granting him parental rights. Following his initial loss in trial court, he lobbied the California legislature to give parental rights to sperm donors.
Born in Queens, New York, the son of Academy Award-nominated actor and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Jason Miller (born John Anthony Miller Jr.) and actress Linda Miller (born Linda Mae Gleason), his maternal grandfather was actor/comedian Jackie Gleason. His half-brother is actor Joshua John Miller. His ancestry is mostly Irish, with some German.Growing up in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey, he attended schools such as Cavallini Middle School and the all-boys Catholic school Salesian Roman Catholic Don Bosco Preparatory High School (Ramsey, New Jersey). In California, he attended Saint Monica Catholic High School (Santa Monica, California). He appeared in high school productions of Dracula and Grease.
