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. He was appearing in commercials by third grade and his pursuit of an acting career later brought his film debut in The Flamingo Kid and the soap opera As the World Turns. He also appeared in Hamburger Hill and made his Broadway debut in The Real Thing, but it was the NBC sitcom Wings where Steven soared to national attention.
Steven’s acting career has been as eclectic as it is accomplished – whether starring in the television version of The Shining or appearing as JFK in The Kennedys of Massachusetts. His films also demonstrate his range, with roles in thrillers Single White Female and The Temp, as the title character in the gay romantic comedy, Jeffrey and as a sleazy 1930s pimp in Showtime’s comic musical Reefer Madness.
Returning to the stage, Steven 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 again on Broadway in The Philanthropist.
Most recently, Steven wrapped guest star roles on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Falling Skies and Parenthood. Steven will play "Hugh J. Magnate, Jr.” in the live action/CG adaption of the hit Nickelodeon animated series, The Fairly OddParents, entitled A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!
Steven, 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.
