  Biography  

 early life
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.

 acting career
Weston is a good friend of actor Zach Braff and has appeared in two features with him, Garden State and The Last Kiss, and as a guest star on Braff's television show, Scrubs. Weston has also recently 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 no such show ever aired.

In 2009 Weston was a producer on the Gerard Butler action film, Gamer.

Weston also guest starred in an episode of the USA Network series Burn Notice whose main character's name, Michael Westen , is, coincidentally, nearly identical.
