Weiss' next project is the movie Bones for Newline Cinema with co-star Pam Grier, slated for an October release. The Chicago native studied at Second City workshop while in high school and later attended the University of Southern California's School of Drama. Weiss, 39, won the role of Dr. Mike Horton on Days of Our Lives soon after graduating, playing the part for five years. However, Weiss probably is best known for his starring role as Jarod in NBC's The Pretender, which now airs in syndication on TNT. The Pretender: Island of the Haunted airs in December. The Pretender 2001 first aired in January.
