After attending director Mike Nichols' New Actors Workshop in New York City, Weaver was involved in various off-off Broadway productions, including Geography of a Horse Dreamer and Urban Empire's Worldly Acts, as well as work at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater. In addition to his stage work, he showed his diversity with guest starring roles on the critically acclaimed NBC dramas Law & Order and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and in the Fox Searchlight feature film, Super Troopers, from the Broken Lizard Comedy Troupe.
Looking to make a permanent leap into film and television, Weaver relocated to Los Angeles and quickly landed a recurring role on NBC's Providence. Guest starring roles followed on NCIS, Cold Case, Monk and the short-lived ABC comedy, Hot Properties, among others. One of Weaver's greatest assets is his ability to excel in both comedy and drama.
Teaming up with Broken Lizard again, Weaver appeared in their second Fox Searchlight release, Club Dread, starring Bill Paxton. Paxton was so impressed by Weaver that he cast him in the Disney film The Greatest Game Ever Played, on which he served as director.
Adding writing to his list of talents, Weaver recently sold his own television show to Warner Bros. with Broken Lizard, but the show has been put on hold due to his involvement in Notes from the Underbelly.
Weaver continues to play music and has released several records, most recently with his New York based band, The New Black. He currently resides in Venice, California, with his wife, Jennifer, and an occasionally annoying hound dog, both of whom are helping him through his addiction to soccer and golf.
