Steven Weber

Biography: Boyishly handsome with a winning smile, this native New Yorker started out in theater before he began booking TV gigs, including a one-year stint on the soap As the World Turns, which introduced him to his first wife, Finn Carter. But 1990 was Weber's breakthrough year: Not only did he earn kudos for his portrayal of JFK in the miniseries The Kennedys of Massachusetts, he landed his signature role as a goofy, girl-crazy pilot on Wings. During his tenure on the lightweight sitcom, Weber popped up in a variety of film roles that showcased his undeniable charm: a cheating boyfriend in Single White Female, a gay man who swears off sex in Jeffrey and a comedic vampire hunter in Dracula: Dead and Loving It. Yet his affable attributes seemed diminished on the big screen, and TV remained Weber's medium. He was chilling in his devilish turn as a murderous husband in the miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Shining,' the first in a string of successful small-screen collaborationsBoyishly handsome with a winning smile, this native New Yorker started out in theater before he began booking TV gigs, including a one-year stint on the soap As the World Turns, which introduced him to his first wife, Finn Carter.

Yet his affable attributes seemed diminished on the big screen, and TV remained Weber's medium. He was chilling in his devilish turn as a murderous husband in the miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Shining,' the first in a string of successful small-screen collaborations with the horror icon. In the '00s, Weber tried tackling his own eponymous sitcom, which was prophetically renamed Cursed before being canceled, and returned to his old stage stomping grounds in the Broadway musical The Producers. After a couple of failed series and a slew of guest spots, he snagged his best role in years, as a hard-nosed TV executive on Aaron Sorkin's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, a series set behind the scenes of a late-night sketch-comedy show that proved surprisingly short-lived. The ABC mystery Happy Town didn't fare any better, but Weber remained a TV fixture nonetheless, putting in guest stints on a number of popular series, including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Brothers & Sisters.
