Chris Noth on playing "Big": "It gets a little crazy when they start yelling names at you"

Following his candid and passionate face to face interview with "Piers Morgan Tonight" guest host Robin Meade (airing Wednesday, 9 p.m.,) this evening television star Chris Noth was gracious enough to spend some time in the show's "Green Room," offering insight on everything from his environmental organization, to his most-celebrated small screen roles.

Speaking exclusively with Jason Kurtz, the actor who's appeared in such hits as "Law and Order" and "Law and Order: Criminal Intent," as well as "Sex and the City" and "The Good Wife," opened up about his famous characters, and what still resonates today:

"It started with Detective Mike Logan," reminisced the shows digital producer, referring to Noth's time on the NBC crime drama, and it's spin-off. "Then of course Big, and now Peter Florrick. So, when you're walking down the street, what do people yell the most?"

"It's usually 'Big,'" revealed Noth, admitting that playing such a recognizable character can be both a gift and a curse. "You feel good when people have enjoyed your work. It gets a little crazy when they start yelling names at you."

Watch the above clip to hear Noth detail the various audiences that relate to his specific shows, then tune in at 9 as he speaks with Meade about his organization – Rainforest Action Network – and it's upcoming auction.
