Michael Weston (born October 25, 1973) is an American television and film actor. His best-known roles are the private detective Lucas Douglas on House, the homicidal meth addict Jake in the critically acclaimed HBO drama Six Feet Under and Pvt. Dancer on Scrubs. Weston was born Michael Rubinstein in New York City, the son of actors Judi West and John Rubinstein, the grandson of piano virtuoso Arthur Rubinstein and the great-grandson of conductor Emil Mynarski, the founding conductor of Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and principal conductor of the Scottish Orchestra. He holds a degree in Theater and Arts from Northwestern University. In 2000 he changed his surname to 'Weston' as there was already a 'Michael Rubinstein' in the Screen Actors Guild.
