Wyle stars as a geeky hero in The Librarian: Return To King Solomons Mines which premieres December 3 on TNT. He plays Flynn Carson, an academic, Indiana Jones-style hero who is responsible for protecting humanitys greatest secrets.
Wyle, best known for his as dreamy Dr. Carter on E.R., says portraying a smart action-nerd on The Librarian has its perks.
Says Wyle: I think Im giving nerds everywhere hope that anyone can be an action hero.
He adds, Ive also received some pretty gratifying fan mail from the Librarians Association of America thanking me for giving nerdy librarians a new reputation.
Wyle studied hard for his role and jokes, I was taught that the best way to play a smart character is to act like an idiot. That was easy.
