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 [[Feature~V157716~Cop Land~copland]] (1997), [[Feature~V161628~The Truman Show~thetrumanshow]] (1998), and the uplifting Disney hockey drama [[Feature~V286893~Miracle~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 [[Feature~V154316~If Someone Had Known~ifsomeonehadknown]] (1995) and [[Feature~V176556~Smoke Jumpers~inthelineofduty:smokejumpers]] (1996), and had higher-profile roles in wide theatrical releases like [[Feature~V135850~Beautiful Girls~beautifulgirls]] (1996) and [[Feature~V180988~Crazy in Alabama~crazyinalabama]] (1999). Emmerich was generally relegated to playing rather one-dimensional authority figures in his early movies, though later got more prominent roles in [[Feature~V161628~The Truman Show~thetrumanshow]] and [[Feature~V186599~Love & Sex~lovesex]] (2000). In subsequent years, Emmerich appeared almost exclusively in such high-profile releases as [[Feature~V258252~Windtalkers~windtalkers]] (2002), [[Feature~V284691~Beyond Borders~beyondborders]] (2003), and [[Feature~V286893~Miracle~miracle]] (2004). The brother of producer [[Performer~P277124~Toby Emmerich~tobyemmerich]], Noah also established a production company, Sandbox Entertainment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
