Before They Were CBC Stars: Chris Noth

When the cast of Titanic: Blood & Steel, a new 12-part miniseries in the fall season line up, was announced and you heard it would include accomplished actor Chris Noth, it's no surprise that fans of his work were anxious to see what BIG things he would bring to the series.


Born on November 13, 1954 in Madison, Wisconsin, Chris launched his versatile career that expands from television to film and to the stage once graduating from the Yale School of Drama. Now a star of the CBC, Chris' most notable credits include his originated recurring role as Detective Mike Logan on Law & Order (which he later reprised on Law & Order: Criminal Intent) and who could ever forget about John James Preston (better know as Mr. Big) - Carrie Bradshaw's on-again off-again, torrid love interest in the HBO series Sex and the City. These two shows (which happen to be two of the most successful series in television history) made Noth an instant heart-throb and, for many, the relatable 'man-friend' of their dreams, well my dreams anyways. Take a look at that Big Kiss in the series finale of SATC...



In addition to playing detective and dream boat, Noth stretched into the film industry and starred in such films as Cast Away (alongside Tom Hanks), Double Whammy, Searching for Paradise, Mr 3000, The Perfect Man, My One and Only, and Sex and the City 1 and 2 - just to name a few.


In 2009, Chris was cast in the role of attorney/politician Peter Florrick; the cheating husband (also accused of corruption) of Julianna Margulies' character Alicia Florrick on the series The Good Wife.



Besides his role on Titantic: Blood & Steel, Chris has also completed filming Lovelace - a biopic about Linda Lovelace starring Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard - due out later this year.


For now, you can enjoy watching Chris as he plays the outrageously wealthy bank mogul and White Star shipping line owner JP Morgan in Titanic: Blood & Steel on CBC. Morgan commissions the building of the 'Unsinkable Ship' while displaying just how ruthless yet devoted he is to being a businessman. Take a look at the sneak peek of the series, already being broadcast on Wednesdays at 9 pm.
