Actor Chris Noth is known mostly for his two television roles: Detective Mike Logan on Law & Order and Mr. Big on Sex and the City. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, Noth has balanced screen work with stage work since the early 1980s. An original cast member of Law & Order, he played Logan for five seasons (1990-95), then spent six seasons as Sarah Jessica Parker's sometime boyfriend on Sex and the City (1998-2004). Noth has also appeared in TV movies and in small roles in feature films, including Cast Away (2000, starring Tom Hanks) and The Glass House (2001, starring Leelee Sobieski). But he'll be forever associated with his television roles, especially since joining the cast of Law & Order: Criminal Intent in 2005 (as Mike Logan) and appearing in the 2008 feature film Sex and the City (as Mr. Big).
