Biography

Early years

Born in London, he attended Summerhill School, Leiston, Suffolk. Later he went to the United States to study at Middlebury College in Vermont, where he majored in English Literature and Political Science, graduating cum laude with a BA. He also attended Juilliard, from which he graduated in 1991.[1] Weber studied at Russia's famed Moscow Art Theatre.

Career

Weber's roles were often in bit parts in A-list, beginning with that of Kyra Sedgwick's (unnamed) boyfriend in the Oliver Stone-directed period saga Born on the Fourth of July (1989) and continuing with work for directors including Sidney Lumet (A Stranger Among Us, 1992), Alan J. Pakula (The Pelican Brief, 1993) and Martin Brest (Meet Joe Black, 1998). Weber scored one of his premier leads as Dr. Matt Crower, a kindly physician who takes charge of a young boy and protects him from a possessed sheriff in actor-turned-producer Shaun Cassidy's short-lived, but well received, supernatural drama series American Gothic (1995) on CBS.

That program did not last long, and neither did the Mike Binder sitcom The Mind of the Married Man (2001), in which Weber signed on as one of the leads, Chicago newspaper employee Jake Berman. After the gory horror remake Dawn of the Dead (2004), Weber won the role of Joe Dubois on Medium playing the husband of a woman (Patricia Arquette) plagued by psychic visions who uses her ability to help solve crimes.

He has performed on Broadway and off-Broadway.
