Jake Weber seems to be keeping busy by helping out fellow Medium co-star, Patricia Arquette, with aiding the people in Haiti. There are at least two pictures posted on the tweetpic account for GiveLove.org. Jake has also recently appeared in a HONDA HYBRID commercial. There's also a pretty nifty Japanese Website for Medium's Sixth Season you should check out as well.

TV's best husband talks the end of the run, growing co-stars and Zack Snyder.



For seven years on MEDIUM, Allison Dubois, played by Patricia Arquette, has seen and heard dead people, an ability she’s used to help the Phoenix, Arizona district attorney’s office. Her three young daughters all share some version of her gift. The only person in the household who doesn’t have psychic qualities is husband and father Joe Dubois, played by Jake Weber. Joe may at times be bewildered, skeptical or even totally exasperated, but he is unshakably loyal and loving, attributes that have had the character rated in multiple polls as one of the best spouses on TV.

MEDIUM spent five years on NBC, ending on a cliffhanger on both sides of the camera before the series was picked up by CBS for another two seasons, which will come to an end this Friday night. This interview with Weber was conducted when it was not known whether an eighth season might be forthcoming. The actor, whose film career includes starring roles in U-571, WENDIGO and the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake, sounds philosophical in any case.

Medium star Jake Weber has claimed that he is not concerned by the show's cancellation. CBS confirmed that the series had been axed in November and the series finale will air tonight at 8/7c. "I have a family now," Weber told Assignment X. "It's lovely to work with [the cast, but] there's a whole world out there. I'm really happy to be in this world [of Medium] but when this is over, I look forward to trying... something else."

However, the Dawn of the Dead star admitted that he was "happy to be back" for one final season. "Every year, [the show's renewal has] always been a question mark, and this was no different," he said. "It always seems to be a drama. A friend of mine said his favorite soap opera on TV was the renewal of Medium the year before, when we switched networks."

Medium creator Glenn Gordon Caron recently suggested that viewers "will tear up" when the final episode airs. [SOURCE]

Looks like Jake's working on something that's not a PSA or Medium this time around and from the summary provided by IDMB.com (which does not list him among the principal cast, rumored or otherwise noted), it doesn't sound to bad. Check out the Jake-centric Photos behind the cut, taken by Brad Bethell (the rest can be seen on his flickr profile).

Tragic: Jake's socialite parents Susan 'Puss' Coriat and Tommy Weber

As the eight-year-old boy walked through the vast iron gates of Villa Nellcote on the Cote d’Azur in the South of France, the scene unfolded like a child’s fantasy. There was a huge pool complete with diving board, a sprawling toy-filled sandpit and even a selection of miniature motorbikes parked alongside a mansion that housed a menagerie of dogs, cats and a rabbit. Tugging the sleeve of his six-year-old brother, young Jake Weber could barely contain his excitement as he cried: ‘It’s just like a fairytale palace!’

But the Villa Nellcote, known locally for having been a Nazi headquarters during the war, was certainly no place for children. No sooner had the heavy wooden doors to the mansion closed than one of the most famous men on the planet lurched forward. Pausing to give Jake’s golden hair a half-hearted tousle, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards knelt down and pulled the boy’s T-shirt off, revealing a package wrapped in plastic taped firmly to Jake’s bare stomach. This, the boy learned, was to be Richards’s ‘wedding gift’ to bandmate Mick Jagger. Inside the package was half a kilo of cocaine. Jake’s brother, Charley, also had half a kilo wrapped round his body. This would be for Richards’s own use.

The Stones in Exile : An Imagine Special
BBC One, Sunday May 23rd, 10.25pm
Rating: 5 Stars




If it was possible to bottle claustrophobia, director Stephen Kijack would be doing it. If you’re looking for a wild ‘rocumentary’ with thrills and spills, you’re barking up the wrong tree. Cut together using still images, never before seen home video, radio announcers and new interviews … this film gives the viewer a taste of the good, the bad and the ugly that took place in the South of France in 1971 whilst the Stones struggled to record Exile on Main Street in Keith Richards’ basement.

So what were they doing in exile? Well as Bill Wyman explains, with 93 percent tax, “If you earned a million quid … which we didn’t … you’d end up with 70 grand, so it was impossible to earn enough money to pay back the inland revenue and stay here in England.”

This sense of not wanting to leave home comes through from all of the band, but especially Wyman who admits he spent a great deal of effort importing Bird’s Custard, PG Tips and Branston pickle for the duration of his stay … but maybe they needed this isolation, because as Martin Scorsese puts it, “The sense that they can’t go home … I think the music reflects that.”

'Stones in Exile' to screen in Directors Fortnight



The intoxicating blend of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll never spoils, particularly if it's of an early '70s vintage. And it never hurts to use film and TV to sell it, particularly if the film makes its debut at Cannes.

"Exile on Main Street," the Rolling Stones' down-and-dirty double album that was reviled upon its 1972 release -- then later hailed as a masterpiece -- appears to grow ever more complex with age. Event-scaled activity is swirling around the album's digitally remastered reissue May 18, which includes 10 freshly unearthed tracks from the period.

The Universal Music Group has spared no expense to create three lavish packages: from the original 18-track release to a "super deluxe" edition that includes vinyl, a 30-minute DVD and a 64-page collector's book. In addition, UMG has enlisted its merchandising company, Bravado, to create an extensive line of "Exile"-inspired products -- t-shirts, caps, leather jackets and the like, all outfitted with the Stones' iconic tongue-wagging logo.

The actor talks about playing his character for six years and dodging the cancellation bullet
By ABBIE BERNSTEIN, Contributing Writer
Published 5/3/2010




Jake Weber, known for feature film roles in WENDIGO, U-571, the remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD and THE HAUNTING OF MOLLY HARTLEY, is now in his sixth season of playing Joe Dubois on MEDIUM. Joe, a science-minded engineer, is married to Patricia Arquette’s psychic character Allison, who uses her gifts to help the Phoenix district attorney’s office. They have three daughters, all of whom seem to have inherited some aspect of Allison’s otherworldly gifts. However, nobody foresaw that, after five years on NBC, the series would be cancelled, so that the fifth-season finale was a cliffhanger that saw Allison comatose in the hospital. Happily for all concerned, CBS picked up MEDIUM; the show is now airing first-run episodes on its new network Friday nights.

iF MAGAZINE: Would you have felt bad about where your character Joe was left off if MEDIUM had ended with last season’s cliffhanger?

JAKE WEBER:
Not so much for my character, but there are two hundred and fifty people there with families and jobs that would have had a real hard time right now – it’s a tough time to be unemployed. It would have been nice if we’d known we were going to finish – it would have been nice to have some closure to it, rather than leave it on a cliffhanger. So many great shows have just ended like that. It would have been a shame to end it without having some sort of storyline that was satisfying for an audience. And also, it would have been sad for the two hundred and thirty people who worked on the show to all of a sudden be made [unemployed].

The long-running Psychic TV show Medium is based on the real-life psychic experiences of spiritual medium Allison Dubois. This amazing woman is a Psychic Aquarian, with money-making (and mediumship-gifted) Scorpio in her 2nd house of money. Success was clearly written in the stars! She's also a suburban mom and wife who has the coolest job. She works for the Phoenix, Arizona Criminal Justice Department using her mediumship gifts to solve crimes.

Patricia Arquette
The character of Allison Dubois is an easy fit for Arquette -- she also starred in the paranormal film Stigmata. The petite actress was born a fired up Aries with Sun (success) in her 10th house of career, meaning she was destined for fame. It's not surprising that Arquette landed the juicy role of a psychic detective, because Aries rules law enforcement.

What's more, her Moon in fiery Leo (all the world's a stage) was just the insurance she needed to catapult her into psychic TV fame. It makes her exceptionally believable as Allison, the loving mom of three psychic daughters on the TV show (it is said that psychic abilities run in families).

Jake Weber is "not interested in inviting scrutiny." But when you're the co-star of a successful TV series, that stuff happens. While he's eating lunch in a Los Angeles cafe, two young women can't resist coming over to say how much they admire his work and enjoy "Medium."



He's amused that the interruption comes just at the moment that he's talking about the "recognition aspect" of a TV star's life, which he says is "disingenuous for actors to complain about" even though he's not someone who would ever want to see details of his personal life in print.

"Medium," now in summer reruns on NBC, attracted an average 13.9 million viewers weekly in its first season. Patricia Arquette, who plays a crime-solving psychic who communicates with the dead, was nominated for an acting Emmy this month.

Friday nights, he’s the incredibly loyal if oftentimes skeptical husband of vision-seeing psychic Alison Dubois on CBS’ “Medium.” But almost 15 years ago, Jake Weber struggled with more sinister supernatural forces on the filmed-in-Wilmington series “American Gothic.” Weber played a doctor in a small Southern town looking after a boy being targeted by a demonic sheriff. Weber, 45, talked with me recently about his unintentional relationship with fantasy, his memories of life on local sets, and what makes his on-screen relationship so special.

Q: “American Gothic” was a short-lived critical darling that never caught on with viewers. What did you think of that show?

A Bunch of images I found for Jake Weber on one of my Google Image trips. Sufficed to say I am most pleased with my results, as I've never seen half these images beyond a 180x180 sized image on Wireimage.com (which is like so unfair).

A concerned Joe (Jake Weber) makes sure Allison's doing okay as she recuperates from her brain surgery on the season premiere of 'Medium.'

The first time Jake Weber set foot in Vermont as a prospective student, in 1986, he knew Middlebury College was the right place for him to be. “There’s a vibe you get,” said the British-born California resident, who enrolled at the school that fall. “I met people it seemed I would feel comfortable with.”

Now 45 and the lead actor on “Medium” — after a move from NBC to CBS, the show’s sixth season premieres at 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25 — Weber recalled that he discovered Middlebury in the midst of a schism 23 years ago. “The campus was divided between Reagan-era Young Republicans and a much more sort of hippie sensibility. Needless to say, the latter is where I felt more at home.” Needless to say, that is, because he had grown up in a decidedly counter-cultural milieu. His late parents, Tommy and Susan Weber, were pals with the Rolling Stones in a rarefied London lifestyle fueled by illegal substances.
