Noah Wyle is an American actor. He is best known for his roles in ER, The Librarian franchise and Leverage: Redemption.


Noah Wyle was born on June 4, 1971 (Noah Wyle: Age 51), in Hollywood, California to Marjorie and Stephen Wyle. Wyle is the middle child of two siblings.

Wyle graduated from The Thacher School in Ojai, California in 1989.

In an exclusive interview with uInterview, Wyle discussed how he got started acting.

“I had auditioned for a play my sophomore year in high school kind of on a lark,” Wyle revealed. “I went to the audition to make fun of the actors who were auditioning. This other kid got the part and I thought, ‘great.’ And then that kid started failing at school so he couldn’t do the extracurriculars so they gave the part to me. And I really didn’t want to do it and thought it was so stupid. We did the show and afterward, some parents of some kids that I didn’t really know came up and told me I was really good. And I hadn’t been told that often about anything. I really loved that feeling and I thought, ‘holy s—t, I want more of that. If that’s something I’m good at maybe I’ll do it again.’ And in doing it I realized this is where I had been wanting to go anyway. I was always interested in English and history and also a big movie buff, I just didn’t know I had the confidence to do it or the ability.”

Wyle went on to do some schooling in the Theatre Arts program at Northwestern University before studying with acting teacher Larry Moss.


Wyle’s acting career started on the stage with high school plays. He got his big break when he was cast as John Carter in ER. The role landed him many Emmy Award nominations and three Golden Globe nominations. In 2001 he won the TV Guide Award for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, after which he left the series. In 2005, the Guinness World Records named Wyle the holder of the “Highest Paid TV Drama Actor Per Episode.” According to Guinness World Records, he earned $400,000 per episode in the tenth season of the show.

Wyle starred as Flynn Carsen in the made-for-TV movies The Librarian: Quest for the Spear (2004), The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines (2006) and The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice (2008). The world of The Librarian was expanded in 2014 with the TNT show The Librarians. Wyle steps back from the spotlight slightly as Flynn lets the three newest Librarians take the reigns and he does off-screen adventures.

Wyle also starred in the television series Falling Skies, The Red Line and Leverage: Redemption.


In Leverage: Redemption we follow a crew of four as they fight the rich and powerful who are used to getting away with their crimes.

In an exclusive interview with uInterview, Wyle explained why he thinks the show resonates with audiences today.

“I think tastes are cyclical and when Leverage was popular the first time, the climate was ripe for a show about Robin Hoods who were helping little guys who were being crushed by big guys,” he said. “Tastes change and you don’t want your heroes to necessarily always be wearing a white hat. You don’t necessarily want all your heroes wearing a black hat. We started getting a lot of black-hatted good guys. We started getting a lot of white-hatted bad guys for a while. Then, the world turned again and now people want their good guys back in white hats and shows and content to be not always cynical and not always depressing, but aspirational and occasionally funny.”

“Shows like Ted Lasso and shows that maybe eight or nine years ago would not have been popular are now almost medicinal to our realities,” Wyle continued. “I think Leverage hits that sweet spot. It’s something you can put on with your parents and your children. It feels contemporary an slightly educational and that you’re learning about something that’s topical. The jokes are funny. The characters are compelling. It’s not too scary and it’s fun.”

Wyle also talked about his favorite moments of shooting the series.

“Shooting TV shows always have a challenge embedded into it,” Wyle revealed. “Part of what makes any show good is professionals that come to work with their very strong opinions and their work ethics and those sometimes work in concert with each other and sometimes come in conflict with each other. Sometimes the conflicts the most interesting stuff to film. It’s not necessarily the most fun, but it’s an energy that’s really interesting to watch. We all get along well together and are also competitive with each other. We also try to make each other better by being the best that we can.”

“What I will come away with from this show is how gratifying it was to be accepted into the ensemble,” Wyle continued. “Watching how this particular ensemble works its process to get the result that everybody enjoys so much. It’s not always one-for-one. It’s a wrestling match occasionally, but these people really enjoy wrestling with each other so that makes it fun.”
