The son of a nightclub singer and a borscht belt talent agent, it's not surprising that Steven Weber's own love for the limelight emerged at an early age. By the time he was in third grade, the New York City-born Weber was appearing in television commercials. Pursuit of an acting career brought his film debut in The Flamingo Kid and a role on the soap opera As the World Turns. He appeared in the acclaimed war film Hamburger Hill and made his Broadway debut in The Real Thing. But it was the NBC sitcom Wings in which Weber soared to national attention, as he and Tim Daly starred for seven TV seasons as brothers running a one-plane airline in Nantucket.
Weber's acting career has been as eclectic as it is accomplished - whether starring in the television version of Stephen King's horror story The Shining on ABC, or appearing years earlier on the same network as JFK in The Kennedys of Massachusetts. His films also demonstrate his wide range, with roles in thrillers Single White Female and The Temp, as the title in the gay romantic comedy Jeffrey, and as a sleazy 1930's pimp in Showtime's comic musical Reefer Madness.
Returning to the stage, Weber has played the lead in the hit Broadway musical The Producers, appeared with Kevin Spacey and Mary Stuart Masterson in the London production of National Anthems, and performed most recently again on Broadway in The Philanthropist.
Most recently, Weber will be seen in the role of George Carver on the ABC Family original drama series Chasing Life and in a recurring role on TNT's series Murder in the First, both premiering in June 2014. He also guest starred on the FX pilot The Comedians, the CBS comedy series Bad Teacher, TNT's Dallas, 2 Broke Girls, Wilfred, Hot in Cleveland, Falling Skies, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Parenthood. In 2013, Weber starred in the play The Parisian Woman at the South Coast Repertory opposite Dana Delany.
Weber, a NYC native from Queens, studied at New York's High School of the Performing Arts and is a graduate of the theatre program at the State University of New York at Purchase.
