Exclusive Video: SVU's Michael Weston Says Benson Is "Aching" for a Family Connection

Law & Order: SVU

Five years after Law & Order: SVU fans met Det. Olivia Benson's estranged half-brother, Simon Marsden (Michael Weston) is back and in desperate need of her help .

"He's not really well-equipped for the world as it is," Weston says in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video. "He has a low self-esteem and an inability to push through difficult circumstances with his head up, and so he finds himself getting the short end of the stick a lot and feeling a little sorry for himself."

Thanks for the preview of next week's House. Anything else you can tell me? — Alex
While lots of (deserved) attention has been paid to Jeffrey Wright's excellent guest turn as a neurologist deciding House's fate, don't take your eyes off the rest of the team. The incident that leads to the investigation leaves a major character fighting serious injuries that could upend his or her future on the show. And the crippling fallout will even have Dr. Crankypants uttering the words — gasp! — "I'm sorry."

CSI: NY has booked former House and Six Feet Under actor Michael Weston to play Frank, a former FBI crime lab agent who worked with Jo (Sela Ward) in Washington, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

But the duo's reunion likely won't be a happy one.

They formerly worked together on a case involving the rape of a U.S. senator's daughter — Jo's last case before leaving the FBI for New York.

Michael Weston On House-Cuddy-Lucas Love Triangle: "It's an Intellectual Menage a Trois"

Michael Weston, Hugh Laurie

Ever since Lucas returned to House as Cuddy's new beau, things have been pretty tense at Princeton-Plainsboro — as well as with the "Huddy" fans! TVGuide.com caught up with Michael Weston, the man behind House's former P.I. pal, to find out what we can expect with his dysfunctional love triangle, what he thinks attracts Lucas and Cuddy to each other and why he found it awkward to shoot a sexy scene with Lisa Edelstein.

Exclusive: Six Feet Under Alum Ready to Play House?

Michael Weston by Soren McCarty/WireImage.com

Stalker alert! Sources confirm to me exclusively that Michael Weston, best known as Michael C. Hall's psychotic pursuer on Six Feet Under, is in advanced talks to appear on House next season in a multi-episode arc that could lead to his own spinoff. But, as I reported last week in Ask Ausiello, the actor — also well remembered as Mariska Hargitay's long-lost bro on Law & Order: SVU — won't exactly be scrubbing in next to the show's title crab: He'll be playing a private eye. So it's probably a good bet that the potential offshoot would look more like Magnum P.I. than House 2.0. Fox will wait to see if Weston catches on in the role before deciding whether or not to move forward with the spin-off. (No pressure though, dude!) In any event, what do you think of this development? Are the suits smart to invite Weston to the House party? Or would you have preferred to see one of the series' regulars spun off — and if so, which one(s)? Debate, discuss, dicker. Not necessa... read more

Hey ER fans better late than never right Thanks for your patience while we got the blog up and running Thankfully the 13th season of our venerable Thursday-night must-see kicked off right where the finale left off with Jerry Luka Abby and Sam all in various states of peril When we last saw Sam she was being tossed into a van by Steve and his fellow prison escapee Rafe For you Six Feet Under fans Rafe was played by Michael Weston the guy who brutalized David in a similarly creepy role a few years back And Mary the ER trainee turned gun-toting accomplice was played by Natasha Gregson Wagner daughter of the late Natalie Wood Their escape resulted in Jerry being shot and Luka being paralyzed and intubated helpless to assist a bleeding unconscious Abby As a devoted fan the sloppiness of some of the writing and character development in recent seasons has been frustrating This show is at its absolute best and always has been when we are watching the day-to-day read more
