From Mike to Big to Peter
In addition to Logan, he's been Big, Carrie's one true love on Sex and the City. Though they were both New Yorkers, Mike Logan would have been contemptuous of Big's "go first class or don't go at all" mentality, whereas Big would probably walk right past Nolan without noticing him.
I keep meaning to watch The Good Wife, Noth's latest show. I know his Peter is a quintessential Cook County politician -- which means, unfortunately, that he has a parole officer.
It occurs to me that with that track record, Noth has worked regularly and appeared in our living rooms almost nonstop for more than 20 years. I bet more people have seen his work than Brad Pitt's, and yet Pitt is considered a bigger star. Certainly Brad is a more attractive gossip/paparazzi target.
I think if I was an actor, I'd prefer a career like Noth's. He's known for his characters, not his private life.
