He has contributed two songs to the NCIS soundtracks, Bitter and Blue and Under the Sun, and played in a band while pursuing his early career in New York City. Another early project was a video shot for a Karaoke CD: A Taste Of Honey's version of "Sukiyaki".
Weatherly began his acting career with a minor television role on The Cosby Show as Theo Huxtable's roommate. He was later cast in the role of Cooper Alden on Loving and later, The City. He appeared in the role from 1992 until 1996.
Weatherly later moved to Los Angeles, soon landing a role as a series regular on the FOX television series Significant Others, with Jennifer Garner. The show only lasted six episodes. He then met director Whit Stillman, who cast him in the 1998 film The Last Days of Disco as Hap opposite Chloë Sevigny. Weatherly also appeared as a conflicted Warlock in the series Charmed during its first season in 1998.
Michael Weatherly starred in Dark Angel for the two seasons it was on the air. This role earned him three award nominations, two Saturn Awards for Best supporting actor on Television in 2001 and 2002, and one Teen Choice award for choice actor in 2001. During filming, Weatherly began a relationship with co-star Jessica Alba, leading to their engagement in 2001. The relationship ended in August 2003.
