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.

There's little that can haunt Patricia Arquette these days, with a sweet love, a young daughter and an Emmy nod for her hit TV show. The actress, 36, who stars in the surprise NBC favorite Medium, has rebounded since her rocky six-year marriage to Nicolas Cage ended in 2001. She's now engaged to actor Thomas Jane (The Punisher), and together the two are raising their 2-year-old, Harlow, as well as Arquette's 16-year-old son, Enzo. 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.
