INSIDE STORY: Medium Star Jake Weber's Rock 'N' Roll Childhood

He spent three nights in a Nigerian prison, countless hours on the back of Mick Jagger's motorbike and a few tense moments with a half-kilo of cocaine strapped to his body while a customs officer eyed him at an Irish airport.

Even for the free-wheeling 1960s, that's enough adventure to last at least a few lifetimes. Jake Weber accomplished all of it before he was 12.

Weber, 46, who for the past five seasons has played the very picture of familial stability as down-to-earth dad Joe Dubois on Medium (premiering Sept. 25 on CBS), had a rock 'n' roll childhood that was anything but stable.

And after taking off about two years from Hollywood, Arquette has quickly wooed critics – and earned an Emmy nomination for lead actress in a drama series, playing a role based on real-life medium Allison DuBois. Arquette recently chatted with PEOPLE about getting into the head of a psychic and having her own glimpse at the other side.
