Exclusive: Chris Noth, Mr. Big Stuff


(image via

A Corsair spywitness (tm) on the Manhattan set of Law and Order: Criminal Intent says Chris Noth made a bit of a scene recently. Apparently Mr. Big objected to an upcoming Fall storyline where they were shooting in a bar/poolhall. In the scene, Noth picks up a pool cue and breaks it in half, threatening a perp with allusions to the Abner Louima torture case. Noth objected to this and gave a bit of a lecture on why he didn't want his character to be reintroduced in such a sleazy manner.

Fucking with the writers' lines or rocking the boat in any way is generally considered to be a big no-no on the set of Law and Order: CI (cough, cough, D'Onofrio, cough, cough), but, according to The Corsair spywitness (tm), Noth's impassioned and noble arguments won everyone over to his side, and the lines were indeed changed.

Right on, "Big"ger things matter, but when your spewing the words of others, stand your ground.

Hello Mr. Noth...I'm a Carrie wannabe-in-yer-pants!

Was that wrong?

Ron, *smooches*

How funny. Just a nice, quiet lecture? He didnt have to throw a fit and pass out?

Ron said...

I'm amazed that there was no fit or anything else. The way it was reported to me, Noth was a gentleman, and everyone on the set respects him a lot more afterwards. *smooches TheresaZ right back*
