Jacob "Jake" Weary (born February 14, 1990) is an American actor, musician, singer-songwriter and music producer. He is best known for his roles as Luke Snyder on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns, Vince Keeler in NBC's action-drama series Chicago Fire, and for his role as Kevin Dawg in Fred: The Movie (2010) and its two sequels and television adaptation, Nickelodeon's Fred: The Show.[1] He currently stars as Deran Cody in the TNT drama series Animal Kingdom, based on the Australian film of the same name.



Weary initially made a guest appearance on the long-running CBS soap opera Guiding Light in 2002, in which his mother, actress Kim Zimmer, portrayed Reva Shayne. After further guest appearances on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Listen Up!,[2] he was cast as Luke Snyder on another of CBS's long-running soaps, As the World Turns.[3] He would remain with the show until December later that year, when actor Van Hansis stepped into the role after Weary decided to leave in order to focus on his schoolwork.[4]

After making his film debut as a hall monitor in Assassination of a High School President in 2008, Weary was cast as Kevin, a central antagonist in the films Fred: The Movie (2010), Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred (2011), Fred 3: Camp Fred (2012), and the Nickelodeon television adaptation, Fred: The Show. Weary has since appeared as Sal in Kaare Anderson's 2010 film Altitude and Hugh in the 2015 horror-thriller It Follows.[5]

Weary currently stars as Deran Cody in the TNT criminal drama Animal Kingdom, based on the 2010 Australian film of the same name.

Under the pseudonym "Agendas," he released a self-titled EP in July 2011, followed by a sophomore effort titled Tones on June 16, 2012. He now currently produces music under his name, with an untitled new album due out in summer 2016.
