Biography

A fixture on the NBC Thursday night lineup for over a decade, Noah Wyle was a relatively unknown actor when he was cast as sweetly earnest young doctor John Carter on NBC's top-rated medical drama "ER" (NBC, 1994- 2009). Despite a few supporting feature film roles in "A Few Good Men" (1992) and Oliver Stone's "W." (2008), the stage-trained actor's boyish looks and bookish persona failed to translate as effectively to the big screen. However Wyle did enjoy significant critical success with made-for-TV movies including the examination of high tech culture "Pirates of Silicon Valley" (1999), in which he portrayed Apple CEO Steve Jobs. In "The Librarian" adventure fantasy series (TNT, 2002, 2004, 2006), Wyle starred as a world-traveled scholar entrusted with unraveling ancient mysteries, and with these roles, maintained his reputation as a go-to for likable, intellectual types with a dash of good-natured wit.
