Noah Wyle A ‘Talktor,’ Not A Doctor

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Noah Wyle isn’t a doctor – he just plays one on TV.

But that doesn’t mean the E.R. star hasn’t picked up a few medical tips.

Wyle says he’s learned a lot of medical jargon in 11 seasons and figures there are some procedures that, as he puts it, “I wouldn’t be able to do them, but I could talk someone through it.”

In fact, Wyle says he was so dedicated to getting his character right that he used to go to grocery stores and buy chickens so he could “practice sewing them up.”

Still, all his TV medical background is only good up to a point. In his words, “My kid’s sick right now and I’m as much of a worrywart as any dad.”

Wyle’s last episode of E.R. airs Thursday (May 19).
