Robert Patrick Remembers Every Time He’s Played the T-1000 Outside of ‘Terminator 2’

I had the very great pleasure of sitting down with Robert Patrick at SXSW this year to discuss his fun, satirical midnight movie Tone-Deaf, in which he plays an aging boomer who hates millennials so much he decides to AirBnB his isolated cabin so he can torment and kill one. Or course, this isn’t the first brush with darkness for the actor, who has pretty much made a career out of playing bad guys. Most famously: the liquid metal T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Patrick has been very happy...
