Weatherly made his acting debut in an episode of “The Cosby Show” in 1991. Later that same year, he had an uncredited appearance on the serial opera “Guiding Light” as Preppy Killer. More than 290 episodes of “Loving” were shown over the years 1992 to 1994, and he went on to reprise the role of Cooper Alden on “The City” during the years 1995 to 1996.
Following his relocation to Los Angeles, Michael landed a co-starring role alongside Jennifer Garner in the 1998 Fox series “Significant Others,” which aired for a total of six episodes.

In the movie “Meet Wally Sparks” from 1997, he portrayed the role of Rodney Dangerfield’s kid, and he also had a role in the movie “The Last Days of Disco” from 1998.
1999 was the year that Weatherly made appearances as a guest star on the television shows “Charmed” and “The Crow: Stairway to Heaven,” as well as in the indie film “Winding Roads.”
In the year 2000, he had roles in the movies “Gun Shy” and “The Specials,” he played a cameo role on “Ally McBeal,” and he began playing the lead role of cyber-journalist Logan Cale on the television series “Dark Angel,” which ran for two seasons and had a total of 43 episodes.
After making his debut as Tony DiNozzo in the April 2003 episode of “JAG” titled “Ice Queen,” Michael went on to portray the role in a total of 306 episodes of “NCIS,” as well as an episode of “NCIS: New Orleans” in 2014 and an episode of “NCIS: Los Angeles” in 2015.

Michael Weatherly Personal Life
Michael wed his co-star from the show “Loving” on September 26, 1995, and the couple went on to have a son named August (who was born on January 10, 1996) before divorcing the following year in 1997. Early in the year 2000, Weatherly had a romantic connection with Jessica Alba, who also appeared in “Dark Angel.”
The couple got engaged in the year 2001. The pair divorced in August of 2003, and Michael later went on to marry another woman—this time an internist named Bojana Jankovic—on September 30, 2009. On April 10, 2012, they became parents to a girl named Olivia, and on October 29, 2013, they became parents to a son named Liam. Alexandra Breckenridge is an actress who has had guest appearances on a number of popular television programmes, including “American Horror Story” and “True Blood.”
Weatherly is her aunt. Both Michael and Bojana have been generous benefactors to a number of charitable organisations, including the Healthy Child Healthy World Foundation, the Tryall Fund, and the Environmental Working Group.
In January of 2018, the actress Eliza Dushku, who had a recurring role on the show “Bull,” was paid a $9.5 million settlement by CBS due to the fact that she was fired after informing producers that Weatherly was behaving inappropriately toward her on set.
The reason for her firing was because she reported that Weatherly was engaging in inappropriate behaviour toward her. The “New York Times” claims that Michael “remarked on her attractiveness and made a joke about rape as well as a quip about a threesome” in front of members of the cast and crew of the show.
Weatherly issued a statement after the incident was made public, in which she said, “When Eliza told me that she wasn’t comfortable with my language and effort at comedy, I was devastated to have hurt her and quickly apologised.” Michael’s release of the statement is a violation of the conditions of the settlement, and Dushku referred to Michael’s apologies as “more deflection, denial, and spin.”
As a direct response to the charges of sexual harassment, Weatherly and the showrunner for “Bull,” Glenn Gordon Caron, both participated in leadership development in the year 2019.
