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 1989-97 NBC sitcom Wings, where Weber gained national attention, and 10 years later in Aaron Sorkin's Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip where he received wide critical acclaim. Weber starred in the television version of Stephen King’s horror story, The Shining and as a young JFK in The Kennedy's of Massachusetts. His other feature films include Single White Female, The Temp, Jeffrey and as a sleazy 1930's pimp in Showtime's comic musical Reefer Madness. Returning to the stage, Weber played the lead in the hit Broadway musical, The Producers and starred with Kevin Spacey in the London production of National Anthems, and most recently again on Broadway opposite Matthew Broderick in The Philanthropist. Weber, a NYC native from Queens, studied at New York’s High School of the Performing Arts and is a graduate of the theater program at the State University of New York at Purchase.
