Biography

Fans of Zach Braff's comedy Garden State (2004) will invariably be able to identify actor Michael Weston from his participation in that film; he played Kenny, the loudmouthed (and profane) cokehead-turned-cop who turns up to read Braff's character the riot act for speeding. The impression made here was not unique; Weston first bowed onscreen during the very late '90s and developed and honed a reputation for memorable one- and two-scene performances over the course of many Hollywood projects. Credits included the slick urban comedy Coyote Ugly (2000), the light crime comedy Lucky Numbers (2000), and the war drama Hart's War (2002). With his performance as hayseed deputy Enos Strate in The Dukes of Hazzard (2005), Weston ascended to supporting billing; he subsequently joined the cast of the Jason Biggs comedy Wedding Daze (2006) and Marc Schoelermann's medical thriller Pathology (2008). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
