Steven Weber

Steven Weber stars as the intense Jack Rudolph, chairman of the fictitious National Broadcasting System, the network that airs the controversial Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip late-night sketch comedy series.

Weber recently returned to the stage, appearing at the Old Vic in London in National Anthems, in which he co-starred with Kevin Spacey and Mary Stuart Masterson. His other stage credits include taking over for Matthew Broderick on Broadway in Mel Brooks' smash hit musical The Producers.

However, Weber is perhaps most recognizable for his role as quick-witted pilot Brian Hackett on the comedy series Wings. He has also starred in the series Once and Again and in numerous television movies, including The Kennedys of Massachusetts and the miniseries version of The Shining.

Weber made his writing debut with his critically acclaimed film Club Land. He also produced and starred alongside Alan Alda. Alda earned Emmy and Screen Actor's Guild Award nominations for his performance in the film.

Among his other films, Weber has appeared opposite Nicolas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas, Single White Female, Hamburger Hill, and in Mel Brooks' horror spoof Dracula: Dead and Loving It. He can next be seen in the Stephen King miniseries, Desperation.
