At 60 years old, Jake Weber has this physical status:
Weber's roles were often bit parts in A-list films, beginning with that of Kyra Sedgwick's character's unnamed boyfriend in the Oliver Stone-directed period saga Born on the Fourth of July (1989) and continuing with work for such directors as Sidney Lumet (A Stranger Among Us, 1992), Alan J. Pakula (The Pelican Brief, 1993) and Martin Brest (Meet Joe Black, 1998).
He 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 programme did not last long; and neither did the Mike Binder sitcom The Mind of the Married Man (2001), in which Weber played one of the leads, Chicago newspaper employee Jake Berman.
After his prominent role in the 2004 remake of horror film Dawn of the Dead, Weber performed the role of Joe Dubois on Medium as the husband of Allison Dubois, (Patricia Arquette), a psychic intermediary who has visions that help her prevent or solve crimes.
In 2016, Weber played a recurring guest-star role as the psychotherapist husband of Detective Andrea Cornell (played by series lead Juliette Lewis) on the second season of the ABC murder mystery, Secrets and Lies. The series was picked up for a full second season by ABC after a successful limited run last spring as a midseason replacement. Weber had a recurring part on the Fox series, The Following, and improvised on the Netflix series Easy. Weber also appeared in seasons 6 and 7 of the Showtime series Homeland.
Weber was cast in the 2021 film Those Who Wish Me Dead. He has performed on Broadway and off-Broadway as well.
