Steven Weber gets ANOTHER role; this time it's Desperate Housewives

Weber SYou know that scene in the movie When Harry Met Sally, when Meg Ryan is in a New York deli and simulates having an orgasm? Then Estelle Reiner looks over and says to the waiter, "I'll have what she's having."?

Well, that's how a lot of actors in Hollywood must be feeling about actor Steven Weber -- "I'll have what he's having!" -- because he's been on a hot streak going from role to role to role, TV series to TV series. The latest is his landing a juicy part on Desperate Housewives.

The former Wings star will be playing Julie's lover, her college professor who's a serial monogamist, having been married three times. Susan, reportedly, is going to freak out about her daughter getting serious with a guy who's old enough to be her father.

This role is being slated for just one episode, so far, but you never know. He could turn out to be Susan's son-in-law down the road.

You have to hand it to Steven Weber because he's really, really popular. Since co-starring on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, he's been all over the dial. He did a stint on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, was a semi-regular on Brothers & Sisters, played Uncle Jack on Psych, an over-the-top deejay on Monk, and is currently Jack Malone's hardass boss on Without A Trace. Either he's got the best agent in the world or casting directors love him!

It's okay by me because everything he's done has been superb. My only complaint about Without of Trace is that, thus far, his character has been pretty much predictable. I would like to see him become more involved with Jack and the other FBI crew, rather than just the overseer.

On the other hand, I think his character would do really well back on Brothers & Sisters; Sarah needs a lover and he was doing a great job until the deal with China fell through and nearly bankrupted the Walker family.

I've been a huge fan of Steven ever since his Wings days. (One of my all-time favorite shows!) It's great to see him get so many roles. He has proven he can do both comedy and drama very well. He's such a talented and underrated actor. (I also think Wings was such an unappreciated show.) I'd love to see him star in anothe show, preferably another sitcom.
