A colleague recently referred to Gregg Weiner as South Florida’s Gene Hackman – always working, highly-respected, focused, intense, funny, an actor who brings a character actor’s technique to leading man parts. Little do they know about his history with puppets, karaoke and perhaps a blow-up doll. Weiner is usually physically recognizable in a role but convincingly inhabits a wide variety of parts from a troubled spouse in Fifty Words to a corporate suit in TV’s Magic City to a sleazy wrestling promoter in The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity. This weekend, Weiner closes a run as a pragmatic lawyer in GableStage’s Race, the fourth role he has done for director Joe Adler this season.
