Biographical and Career Information:

Jake Weber attended Middlebury College in Vermont, where he majored in English Literature and Political Science, graduating cum laude with a BA. He attended the Julliard School, from which he graduated in 1991, and also studied at Russia's famed Moscow Art Theater.  His age is unknown, but probably he's in his early- to mid-thirties.
Jake #5 Jake seems to have spent many years in Great Britain, which perhaps explains his accent--an intriguing mixture of British and New England-ese. In an endearing quirk, when playing a 'regular American guy,' he sometimes tends to overcompensate for his classical training by affecting a slightly exaggerated New York accent.

As of April 2000, Jake is a newlywed! Information about his wife is unknown, but we do know that he's been linked to Nora Ariffin, an actress (who co-starred with Jake in the film "Skin Art") for several years. The two lived together for some time in Manhattan. Is this the new bride? We shall see!
