The Tampa Bay Rays have landed some genuine star appeal, getting Hollywood actor Patrick Wilson to sing the national anthem before Friday's game against the Rangers at 7:10 p.m. The Emmy and Golden Globe nominee never forgets where he came from, which is right here in St. Petersburg, where he often lends his celebrity to local charities and his Tony-nominated singing voice to the Wilson Van, a fundraising rock band alongside brothers Mark and Paul. Wilson has spent years singing lead roles in major Broadway musicals, and is coming off two fright film franchises The Conjuring and Insidious and his much-talked-about 2013 guest spot on Girls, when he had a two-day fling with Lena Dunham's Hannah.
