Maria Shriver Congratulates Son Patrick Schwarzenegger on Getting Cast in New “White Lotus,” Also Plugs Brands


Maria Shriver hasn’t done too badly in the parenting department.

Her daughter, Katherine, is married to movie star Chris Pratt. So she’s all set — along with a career writing books.

Now son Patrick, who’s been trying to get a break in Hollywood, has been cast in third season of HBO’s “The White Lotus.” He’s playing The Good Looking Young Guy, which is not a bad way to start out. Plenty of stars have had that role.

Maria, a great broadcaster, author, and philanthropist, Tweeted her congrats to Patrick this afternoon. She also plugged a brand –Armani — and her wellness charity for Alzheimer’s research. Mother and son have a protein bar called Mosh that they sell online. Portions of the proceeds go to the charity.

Patrick joins a cast that includes Walton Goggins, Aimee Lou Wood, Sarah Catherine Hook, Sam Nivola, Carrie Coon, Leslie Bibb, Jason Isaacs, Michelle Monaghan, Natasha Rothwell, and Parker Posey. It may also include the ghost of Jennifer Coolidge’s character, Tanya, and possibly also Kieran Culkin.

Anything is possible at The White Lotus.
