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.

Teenagers out of control! Now we're talking. Stories about dangerous, scary teens threatening adults have been a staple of B-movies and bad TV shows for decades. But recently, teens tend to be portrayed in a more pleasant light ("High School Musical," "Glee," the Justin Bieber phenomenon). So I was happy to see the scary-teen theme return with a vengeance in "Bond of Silence" (9 p.m., Lifetime), starring Kim Raver ("24").

Like many TV tragedies, "Bond" begins in yuppie heaven. Gorgeous wife Katy McIntosh (Raver) is preparing soup when her handsome and triathlete-running husband lawyer Bob (David Cubitt, "Medium") comes out of the shower and gives her a hug. What could go wrong?

Set against this scene of domestic bliss, a New Year's Eve party assembles across the street, teeming with underage drinkers and unsupervised youth. What could go wrong?

'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.

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?

Randomest Cover Ever...In the spirit of Halloween '09, we're breaking out reviews (some new, some old) of some Fall Frights you may want to work into your monthly viewing.

WENDIGO - FANGORIA Archives: Originally Published 2/2002

Despite rumors of its demise, the quality independent horror film has proven itself alive and well in the past year, if sometimes difficult to find. 2001 saw a strong crop of low-budget horror features, both foreign and domestic, come to light, and a high-water mark has been set early in 2002 with Larry Fessenden’s WENDIGO. If many genre films that approach its quality follow in the next 10 months, it’s going to be a hell of a year.

The New York-based Fessenden made an underground name for himself with his previous feature, the downtown vampire film HABIT, but the skill for character-based horror he demonstrated there truly finds full flower in WENDIGO. Literally leaving HABIT’s urban milieu behind, the new movie follows a city family--commercial photographer George (Jake Weber), his psychiatrist wife Kim (Patricia Clarkson) and their young son Miles (Erik Per Sullivan)--as they drive to a vacation at a farmhouse in wintry upstate New York. Before they even reach the place, their peaceful plans go awry, as George hits a deer that runs in front of their car.

Miguel Sandoval has had a long career in show business, with well over 100 credits to his name on One of his very first jobs though, for which he was hired while still working as a bartender, was Repo Man. Sandoval played Archie, a young punk with a mohawk. Now, 25 years later, Sandoval has re-teamed with Repo Man’s director, Alex Cox, to film Repo Chick, a sort-of sequel to Repo Man.

Repo Chick is actually more of a continuation than a sequel, as it deals with different characters from Repo Man. Sandoval plays a man named Arizona Gray in this one, and seems to have traded in his mohawk for a cowboy hat. YouTube has a clip from a documentary filmed about the making of Repo Chick. In it, Sandoval tells the funny story of how he snagged his role in Repo Man.

Jake Weber is starring in a heartbreaking new PSA for, a group dedicated to feeding hungry children around the world. The idea behind it is that you can skip one thing in your day, even something small like your morning coffee, and donate the money you would have spent to Skip 1. From their website:

“We’re asking people like you to skip 1 thing for 1 day – a coffee, a pack of gum, that magazine at the checkout stand, a car wash, a haircut, a manicure, a cab fare – take the money you would have spent on those things and donate instead to Public donations go to the acquisition and distribution of food and water projects worldwide. It’s that simple.”

Even small donations can add up to big change if enough people get involved, and feeding hungry families is certainly a worthy cause. It’s nice to see Weber involved with an organization devoted to bringing about positive change.
