Here are some fun quotes from Noah!
(on his fame)
'It's funny. Some days I don't even notice it. Most of the time, people are complimentary. And I'm an actor who loves compliments, so I find it very gratifying. And then there are days when you just don't wanna be the guy on the TV show. You just want to hide.' (Cosmo, 1997)
(Comparing himself to his ER character John Carter)
'Carter has a strong moral backbone and is sweet, romantic, funny and self-effacing. I'm sure a lot of people think, "What an ideal guy. Love to find a guy like that." Noah Wyle ain't him. He's trying. But he's just a different guy. At the end of the day, John Carter is going to be in the television archives and Noah Wyle is still going to be walking around the earth. And I hope when that day comes, I'm ready to be me.'
'I made a vow that I won't be gone for 80-hour weeks.'
(about the sitcom Scrubs)
'They've got the great benefit of having eight years of our storytelling to make fun of. I wish that I could sort of slip them some story lines because I know I've got some good ones for them.'
'It's weird, I actually like doing interviews now. Ever since I gave up therapy, it's my only time with a captive audience.'
'We've got goats, chickens, horses, dogs, cats, two emus and five pot-bellied pigs. We just keep collecting these animals. I think when you are named Noah, you are destined for a certain way of life.'
'I'm a guy who never wanted to hold a steady job, because I was worried about the monotony.'
'Boy, oh, boy, people get jaded fast. I got nominated for an Emmy.'
'I've learned that it's everything I ever wanted but never knew I did. It's the best. I know [my son] will have struggles in his life, get hurt or teased. But my dream for him is that he retains the spirit he has right now. It's so beautiful.'
'I'm thinking about naming my first son Emmy so I can say I've got one. I want Emmy, Oscar and Tony - and my daughter Grammy.'
