Personal lifeEdit

Weston was born Michael Rubinstein in New York City, the son of actors Judi West and John Rubinstein, the grandson of piano virtuoso Arthur Rubinstein and the great-grandson of conductor Emil Młynarski, the founding conductor of Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and principal conductor of the Scottish Orchestra.

He holds a degree in Theater and Arts from Northwestern University. In 2000 he changed his surname to "Weston" as there was already a "Michael Rubinstein" in the Screen Actors Guild. He has been married to musician Priscilla Ahn since 2010.

Acting careerEdit

Weston is a good friend of actor Zach Braff and has appeared in three features with him, Garden State, Wish I Was Here and The Last Kiss, and as a guest star on Braff's television show, Scrubs. Weston has also appeared as Simon Marsden, Olivia Benson's half-brother on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Weston appeared in the fifth season of House as a private investigator named Lucas Douglas hired by Dr. Gregory House; he reappeared in season six. Series creator David Shore planned a spin-off show with Weston's character as the lead in 2008, but the show never went into production.

In 2009, Weston appeared in the Gerard Butler action film Gamer. He made a guest appearance on Burn Notice. In 2012, he starred in the A&E television movie, Coma.
