Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Boyishly handsome male supporting and leading player who has fared well on stage, TV, and in films. Weber--whose father was a nightclub performer and manager--began acting while in the third grade, appearing in commercials. Following graduation from New York's High School of Performing Arts, he broke into TV with small parts in the "American Playhouse" version of Mark Twain's "Pudd'nhead Wilson" (1984) and in the CBS soap "As the World Turns" (where he met his first wife, actress Finn Carter). More bits followed in the films "The Flamingo Kid" (1984), "Flanagan" (1985), "Hamburger Hill" (1987), and a larger role in the low-budget drama "Angel" (1990). He made his Broadway debut in Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing" (1984).On TV, Weber guested on "Crime Story" (NBC, 1987) and appeared in the movies "When We Were Young" (NBC, 1989) and "Fatal Flaw" (ABC, 1989). He gained notice as the young John Kennedy in the mini-series "The Kennedys of Massachusetts (ABC, 1990), before his real break came that same year. He was cast as Brian Hackett, the irresponsible charmer on NBC's hit sitcom "Wings" (1990-97), and soon other offers began coming in as well. He co-starred in a handful of TV movies, including...

Boyishly handsome male supporting and leading player who has fared well on stage, TV, and in films. Weber--whose father was a nightclub performer and manager--began acting while in the third grade, appearing in commercials. Following graduation from New York's High School of Performing Arts, he broke into TV with small parts in the "American Playhouse" version of Mark Twain's "Pudd'nhead Wilson" (1984) and in the CBS soap "As the World Turns" (where he met his first wife, actress Finn Carter). More bits followed in the films "The Flamingo Kid" (1984), "Flanagan" (1985), "Hamburger Hill" (1987), and a larger role in the low-budget drama "Angel" (1990). He made his Broadway debut in Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing" (1984).

On TV, Weber guested on "Crime Story" (NBC, 1987) and appeared in the movies "When We Were Young" (NBC, 1989) and "Fatal Flaw" (ABC, 1989). He gained notice as the young John Kennedy in the mini-series "The Kennedys of Massachusetts (ABC, 1990), before his real break came that same year. He was cast as Brian Hackett, the irresponsible charmer on NBC's hit sitcom "Wings" (1990-97), and soon other offers began coming in as well. He co-starred in a handful of TV movies, including "Deceptions: A Mother's Secret" (NBC, 1991), "In the Company of Darkness" (CBS, 1993), and "Betrayed by Love" (ABC, 1994).

Buoyed by "Wings," Weber returned to the big screen in Barbet Schroeder's "Single White Female" (1992), as Bridget Fonda's loutish, ill-fated boyfriend. After a supporting role in "The Temp" (1993), he starred for the first time in "Jeffrey" (1995), based on Paul Rudnick's play about a gay man trying to be celibate. He followed this with a cameo in the acclaimed drama "Leaving Las Vegas" and in Mel Brooks' "Dracula: Dead and Loving It" (both 1995). In the latter, he played straight to Leslie Neilsen and was teamed romantically with his "Wings" co-star Amy Yasbeck. Divorced from Carter, Weber wed MTV executive Juliette Hohnen in 1995.
