This is the official fansite for the incredibly versatile and talented actor Norbert Weisser.Norbert began acting in the theater in the 60’s, then in films and television in the 70’s. Almost every one of Norbert’s roles is featured in this site on a dedicated page.I do not attempt to capture entire films or television episodes in this website. Focus is on Norbert’s role and contribution to the production.
A complete list of Norbert’s movie and television roles can be found on his IMDB page.I had the distinct honor of designing his professional website. Check it out for different features and clips of several of his theater performances.
Norbert just completed a successful run as Todd in CHARLES’ STORY, the last play of the epic THE GARY PLAYS by Murray Mednick. Taken as a whole, the six-play series portrayed economic and spiritual distress in the contemporary urban wilderness of Los Angeles. An everyman/anti-hero, Gary was hailed by KCRW as “a sort of L.A. Leopold Bloom.”
The Gary Plays ran through June 10.Check out the Latest Ventures page where you can see more photos.

Check out the new additions to the Midnight Express page in the Film section of this website. Billy Hayes, author of the book the film was based on, has graciously allowed use of material from his website that has information on his latest books, the documentary “Midnight Return,” and his one-man show, “Riding the Midnight Express,” which was recently performed at the Odyssey Theater in Los Angeles.

Norbert and several other actors, along with friends and family of the late Sam Shephard got together on the evening of October 2 to pay tribute to this fine actor and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright. Tom Bower, Ed Harris, Murray Mednick, Bill Pullman, Morgan Weisser and many others read excepts from Sam’s brilliant and insightful writings or offered up their thoughts on long friendships, and even sang a few songs. Photos from the evening can be found on the Sam Shepard Tribute page. Sadly, Sam passed away from complications from ALS on July 27, 2017.
