Noah Emmerich Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Actor/producer/director Noah Emmerich made a name for himself onscreen with memorable supporting roles in such features as Cop Land (1997), The Truman Show (1998), and the uplifting Disney hockey drama Miracle (2004). With a chameleon-like ability to disappear into his characters and a solid drama background, Emmerich threw himself into every role no matter how small or seemingly inconsequential. A New York native who attended Yale University and the N.Y.U. Film School, he sang a cappella with the former's Yale Spizzwinks before making the award-winning short The Painter at N.Y.U. Following graduation, he appeared in such small-screen efforts as If Someone Had Known (1995) and Smoke Jumpers (1996), and had higher-profile roles in wide theatrical releases like Beautiful Girls (1996) and Crazy in Alabama (1999). Emmerich was generally relegated to playing rather one-dimensional authority figures in his early movies, though later got more prominent roles in The Truman Show and Love & Sex (2000). In subsequent years, Emmerich appeared almost exclusively in such high-profile releases as Windtalkers (2002), Beyond Borders (2003), and Miracle (2004). The brother of producer Toby Emmerich, Noah also established a production company, Sandbox Entertainment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
