The first time Chris Noth was noticed was in the movie Off Beat in which he played a minor role as Ely Wareham Jr. (the screen brother of Meg Tilly's character). Noth played bit parts for the next four years such as Baby Boom and the TV mini-series I'll Take Manhattan both in 1987, until Wolf Productions offered him a feature role in the TV series Law & Order. Noth played Detective Mike Logan from the summer of '89 to the summer of '95. Noth made this role his own and played it to the brilliance of any great actor. The character Det. Mike Logan is a young cop who is hailed as the "soul" of the series. Through the years, the character Logan was to become a very strong presence due to the talented Noth and the the great story lines in which Logan got into a number of close calls.
Noth was aided by a great cast of characters which included George Dzundza (season one), Paul Sorvino (season two and three), Michael Moriarty (season one to four), Richard Brooks (season one to three), Dann Florek (season one to three), Jill Hennessy (season four to six), and Steven Hill (season one to present). Many characters came and went while Noth starred in Law & Order, but at its peak in season two and three, Noth seemed at home in his role. Chris Noth's and Paul Sorvino's intimidating appearance, (each standing at 6'4" inches tall) made them an excellent "Batman and Robin" partnership together.
In 1995, Noth's contract was not renewed. This came as a shock to fans of the series as they saw the "heart" (Moriarty) forced out over TV violence and now the "soul". Noth continued to work in movies as well as TV, and in 1996 he starred in the successful TV movie Abducted: A Father's Love (which also starred Peter MacNicol) and in 1998 he became a regular on the smash hit series Sex and the City.
