Jason Patric Has a Macho Preshow Ritual, Says Jim Gaffigan

If there's one take-home message from our recent interview with Jason Patric, it's that he's all man. (One excerpt: "I’m not addicted to [fame] like 99 percent of every actor in Hollywood, even our 65-year-old so-called legends are so addicted to remaining stars that they're in the kind of movies that would not be toilet paper in their classics.") Today on The View, his co-star in the Broadway revival of That Championship Season, Jim Gaffigan, told the ladies a story about the boozy preshow ritual that Patric has lured him into, and it's just the kind of manly thing you could picture Patric doing. (No, the ritual is not slapping some sense into Robert De Niro.)
