NEW YORK (AP) Noah Wyle, the last continuous on-air link to the NBC medical drama ER's freshman season in 1994, seems headed for the doctor's retirement home. Wyle, who plays Dr. John Carter, told E! Entertainment Television on Thursday that he plans to leave the show at the end of this season.


"I've just got other stuff going in my life right now," Wyle told E! News Live.'. I've got a son, I've got family and friends that said goodbye to me 12 years ago and are wondering when I'm coming back, and this little urge to scratch a different kind of itch in my career, and it's just coming to the end of the character's run."

Wyle was the impressionable young resident among a powerhouse cast that included Anthony Edwards, George Clooney, Eriq La Salle and Julianna Margulies. As they all left around him, Wyle became the show's promotional centerpiece.

He may have talked to E! about leaving, but he hasn't told series creator John Wells or the producers, Warner Bros. Television, said Wyle's spokesman, Eddie George.

"He's clear on what he said," George said. "That's where his head is at. That could change. There's a lot of things that could happen between now and the end of the season."

A Warner Bros. spokeswoman said only, "people are going to have to stay tuned to see what's happening."

The five-time Emmy Award nominee's contract expires at the end of this season. This spring he watched as another popular Warner Bros. show that debuted the same season, Friends, made its goodbye.

"The day the cast filmed their last episode, I saw them in the commissary. It was heavy," he told The Associated Press. "Here they were, closing a defining chapter in each of their lives, and all I could do was think: 'The end of that chapter's coming, for me.'"

Earlier in the year he said he thought about leaving several times.

What made him stay?

"The money, probably," he said.

ER will outlast him. NBC has locked up the show for another season past this one and, barring an unexpected downturn in the ratings, it will likely continue beyond that.

"It feels like the show is on the edge of reinventing itself," Wyle told E!. "It's time to take it to that next evolutionary place, where names like George and Tony, Eriq, Julianna and Noah are a thing of the past, and names like Shane (West), Linda (Cardellini) and Parminder (Nagra) are a thing of the future

Sorry guys, you Linda Cardellini, Parmander Nagra, Sherry Stringfield, and above all, Maura Tierney in a phone booth, or a public toilet stall, or online at the DMV, and I'm still watching.

I'm so glad to see someone give Maura her props. She is hot. I think some of it has to do with the fact that she seems normal, and attainable. But incredibly sexy.

I get to see it 5 days a week ... in real life. Todays episode started with a 1 month old that coded and died.

As the shirts say that many folks at work wear proudly, "E.R. - You watch it. We live it."

Wyle's spokesman, Eddie George

Now we know why his production numbers have been so poor the last couple of years for the Titans. He was moonlighting on them! ROFL

Hey, she's sexy enough that I half thought Dave Foley was straight.



j/k - I know he's twice married, but he's still about the swishiest straight dude out there.

He played a gay guy on Blast from the Past... but I don't think he's actually gay.
