The Indiana Jones-type adventure features Wyle as Flynn Carsen, a librarian of a different kind. Carsen crosses the globe in search of rare artifacts and pieces of history in order to preserve them for mankind.
Wyle is also in the midst of aiding the completing 15 season of the legendary TV stalwart, ER. After a decade and a half, the entire ER gang is finally hanging up their scrubs.
Wyle tells SheKnows all about his Librarian franchise as well as insight into the final phases of ER.
Noah Wyle: Well there's certainly physical challenges that are inherent to playing this part. You never know quite what you're going to be called on to do. The nice thing about being a producer in this is rather than having to acquire in your skills I get to just retrofit the story telling to the ones I already possess whether its horse back riding or fencing or pulling a (skiff) through a Louisiana swamp – all the things that I've felt pretty capable doing, but in terms of challenges they're really more inherent to the structure of the way we make these movies, which is with a little less time than we need and a little less money than we require and still delivering high production values and interesting story telling. Actually that's the ongoing inherent challenge.
SheKnows: Of the four Librarian films, is there one that is particularly close to your heart and why?
Noah Wyle: In a lot of ways this has been my favorite one that we've done. I think if – in things maybe our best offering and part of that's just the byproduct of the fact that we didn't have to expend so much energy this time to character expositioning – establishing who he is and what the world of what the librarian is. We got to sort of pick up midstream and get right into the mission as it were. (Plus) shooting in New Orleans was incredibly memorable. I'm embarrassed to admit that was my first time to the city and I didn't really know quite what to expect. What I found was a really vibrant city with incredibly strong and funny people who were willing to work extremely long hours in difficult circumstances. They couldn't have been more gracious or welcoming to our production and I can't say enough about that city. I can't wait to go back.
