His scene was cut from the final release, but is available on the DVD and Blu-ray release of the film. He is perhaps best known for his role Sydney Bristow's father, Jack, in Abrams' popular series Alias. He played the role for all five seasons of the show, receiving three Emmy Award nominations as well as a Saturn Award and a Satellite Award.
In early 1972 Garber was cast in the lead role of Jesus in a Toronto production of the musical Godspell, along with Andrea Martin. Garber was possibly the most experienced member of that production's cast, having already starred in a number of theatrical musical productions. Garber reprised his role for 1973 film adaptation of Godspell, which marked his film debut.
On Broadway, Garber performed in a 1973 off-Broadway production of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts, which won him the 1973 Theatre World Award. He later performed in the original productions of Deathtrap, Sweeney Todd (starring Len Cariou in the title role), and Noises Off. He shared the 1984 Drama Desk Award Outstanding Ensemble Work for his work in the latter, and received his first Tony nomination for Deathtrap. He earned Tony nominations for his performances in revivals of Little Me and Damn Yankees (co-starring Bebe Neuwirth) and the original production of Lend Me a Tenor (which co-starred Caroline Lagerfelt). Garber was also nominated for the 1987 Drama Desk Award Outstanding Actor in a Play for a revival of You Never Can Tell, working with Stephen McHattie.
Garber made his Canadian television debut in 1974 playing the title role in Jack: A Flash Fantasy, directed by Robert Iscove.

Following brief stints as a regular on the soap opera Guiding Light and the comedy series The Days and Nights of Molly Todd, he played the title role in the 1988 CBS movie Liberace: Behind the Music, opposite Saul Rubinek.
From 1991 through 1994 Garber starred in the Canadian TV series E.N.G. (or Electronic News Gathering).

Murray Abraham and Christopher Plummer. Garber was also nominated by the Gemini Awards for his role in the 1993 Canadian TV movie Dieppe and for his lead role in the 1999 film External Affairs.
In 1993 Garber appeared in the CBS mini-series Queen along with Madge Sinclair and Paul Winfield. Garber again worked with Saul Rubinek, as well as Star Trek (2009) co-star Bruce Greenwood, in the 1993 NBC movie Woman on the Run: The Lawrencia Bembenek Story. Garber's subsequent TV movie credits include the 1997 Disney version of Cinderella (directed by Robert Iscove and co-starring Jason Alexander and Whoopi Goldberg) and the 1999 adaptation of Annie (in which he played Daddy Warbucks).
Some of Garber's early feature film credits include Light Sleeper (1992, with David Clennon), Sleepless in Seattle (1993), Exotica (1994, again working with Bruce Greenwood), Jeffrey (1995, co-starring Steven Weber, Ethan Phillips, and Patrick Stewart), and The First Wives Club (1996). He worked with Star Trek: The Motion Picture actor Stephen Collins on the latter film, and both Garber and Collins shared a National Board of Review Award along with their co-stars for Best Acting by an Ensemble.
Perhaps Garber's most well-known film role is that of Thomas Andrews, the man who spearheaded the building of the RMS Titanic, in the Academy Award-winning Titanic. Also starring in this film was fellow Trek movie actor David Warner. For their work in Titanic, Garber, Warner, and their co-stars were nominated by the Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast.
Garber's subsequent film credits include How Stella Groove Back (1998, with Whoopi Goldberg), Legally Blonde (2001) and Tuck Everlasting (2002). He also worked with Raphael Sbarge in the 2002 film Home Room, with Garber and Sbarge playing a pair of detectives. More recently, Garber played Mayor George Moscone in Gus Van Sant's Academy Award-winning 2008 biographical drama Milk.
In 2001 Garber earned two Emmy Award nominations: one for his role as Sidney Luft in the biographical drama Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadow, and another for a guest appearance on Frasier (starring Kelsey Grammer). After Alias ended, Garber starred in the short-lived FOX legal drama, Justice. He also made an appearance on the hit ABC series Ugly Betty with John Cho, Alan Dale, Tony Plana, and Vanessa Williams. Garber starred as Jordan Wethersby on the ABC series Eli Stone, which ran for two seasons from 2008 through 2009. He also had a recurring role on the FOX network series Glee.
