Michael Weston

MINI BIO

Date of Birth: October 25th 1973

American television and film actor. He is known for his role as Jake in the critically acclaimed HBO drama Six Feet Under.

Weston was born Michael Rubinstein in New York City, the son of actors Judi West and John Rubinstein, and the grandson of piano virtuoso Arthur Rubinstein. He holds a degree in Theater and Arts from Northwestern University. In 2000, he had to change his surname to "Weston" as there was already a "Michael Rubinstein" in the Screen Actors Guild.

Weston is a good friend of actor Zach Braff, and has appeared in numerous features with him, including Garden State, The Last Kiss and Braff's television show, Scrubs, as a guest star. Weston has also recently appeared twice as Simon Marsden, Olivia Benson's half-brother on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He is set to appear at least once more on the show (that being on the season 8 finale).
