The next day he had sent it over to his manager at the time to forward it to casting for consideration. Casting ended up liking his performance so much they ended up putting him on stand by. The role eventually went to Milo Ventimiglia, unfortunately it just wasn’t meant to be.

Wolfgang Weber’s bio:
Wolfgang Weber was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, but grew up in the small town of Perth just outside of the city. He’s one of 4 brothers. His father Wolfgang Weber Sr. is a retired Mechanical Engineer and his mother Catherine Weber, worked as a stay at home mom.
Between 2004—2008, Wolfgang’s first TV appearance was on the CTV Canadian mini series “H2O” and soon after he moved to Florida in pursuit of his acting career. While there he had booked small forgettable roles in a variety of commercials, shorts films and features. However, his run of luck led him to second guess his acting career and embark on a career in law enforcement.
After being denied time off for an audition, he decided to quit his job and go full force into acting by moving to Los Angeles, California leaving his law enforcement career behind. For the first seven months he stayed in a hostel in South Los Angeles, and had lied to his parents about his living situation to not worry them. It was only a few days and Wolfgang had signed with a manager. From there he landed co star roles on various shows such as Cartoon Networks “Incredible Crew” & “CSI Miami”. Wolfgang was finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel by being cast in the thriller “Into the Darkness” starring alongside Twilight’s Kiowa Gordon, but due to financing issues, the film never got made after a year’s worth of press. Since then Wolfgang has starred in many indie films like “All American Zombie Drugs”, “The Magicians Son”, “Resurgent” and can be seen on a variety of hit YouTube Channels. You can also catch him in the features “Cynthia”, “Interpreters” and Lifetime’s “Devious Nanny”.
