Fans recognize Patrick Wilson from his CBS drama A Gifted Man, but his friends know him as a die-hard Van Halen fan – with a family cover band to boot.
"You're defined by your older brothers or sisters' music," explains the actor, 38, who was turned on to the band decades ago by his elder brothers Paul and Mark. "It's always been this hilarious passion."
Driven by their love of music and all things Van Halen (Wilson says that his surgical hat in A Gifted Man is made from a Van Halen t-shirt!), the brothers formed their own cover band – dubbed, appropriately, Van Wilson – a few years ago, and play gigs whenever they can.

As an actress, Rachel McAdams has done the morning news shows more than once. Now, she gets a chance to produce one – in her upcoming film with Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Patrick Wilson.
In Morning Glory, whose first trailer is just out, McAdams makes a desperate attempt to revive a morning show's flagging fortunes by convincing Ford, a veteran newsman, to come out of retirement and join the on-air team. But Ford is a loose cannon, to put it mildly, and things are going to get worse before they get better.
The movie is due in theaters in November.
