Biography

Raised in New Orleans, actor Frederick Weller began his career in NYC as an understudy in the acclaimed stage production "Six Degrees of Separation" in 1991. Guest appearances in the pilot of "I'll Fly Away" (NBC, 1991) and "Law & Order" in 1993 followed before he was seen as an awkward Eliot Ness (supposed roommate to the title character) in a segment of ABC's "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" also in 1993. The dark-haired, boyishly handsome actor landed what he hoped would be a career break as Polish-American Chicago cop Johnny Sandowski in the ABC drama series "Missing Persons" (1993-94), but the police show never caught on with the general public.
