Biography[edit]

Movie career[edit]

After an initial guest role on his mother Kim Zimmer's show, Guiding Light in 2002, he was cast as Luke Snyder on the television soap opera As the World Turns.[1] Weary has been in nearly all of the FRED THE MOVIE and FRED THE SHOW episodes, which are shown on Nickelodeon and Viva.

Weary's departure from As the World Turns was the cause of some controversy, as the timing coincided with a change in course for the character of Luke, who would be revealed to be gay.[2] Initially, news reports suggested that Weary or Zimmer may have been uncomfortable with the story. Zimmer subsequently told the press that Weary's departure was related to his age (at the time, he was 15) and that such a storyline would require a much larger time commitment than originally agreed to. Weary wanted to be able to focus on school and make occasional appearances.

Weary did go on to appear in episodes of two of the Law & Order franchise shows, Criminal Intent and SVU.[3]

Weary was cast in Kaare Anderson's film Altitude. He was also cast as Kevin in Fred: The Movie, a made for TV movie by Nickelodeon based on the Fred Figglehorn web series.
