Although fans expressed outrage and regret, Noth welcomed the chance to take his career in another direction. However, he did convince Wolf to produce a TV movie spin-off entitled Exiled (1998), starring Noth and several other Law & Order cast members, to wrap up the story of Mike Logan, which Noth felt had been prematurely extinguished on the show.
Since Law & Order, Noth has appeared in several independent films, including The Broken Giant (1996), Cold Heart, Texas Funeral, Pigeonholed, and Getting to Know You, which was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at 1999’s Sundance Film Festival. He has also appeared on television, playing an ex-convict in an episode of Touched by an Angel, as well as in the miniseries Rough Riders (1997) and Medusa’s Child (1997).
In 1998, Noth landed a recurring television role in the endearingly quirky series Sex and the City. In the show, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, he plays Mr. Big, the emotionally distant and elusive object of protagonist Carrie Bradshaw’s obsessive attention. The series ended in 2004, but was revised as an original theatrical film in 2008.
In the TNT series, Bad Apple, based on Anthony Bruno's crime novels, Noth heads back to New York as an undercover FBI agent. Currently Noth appears opposite Julianna Margulies, as Peter Florrick, a former Chicago state's attorney, who has been jailed following a very public sex and corruption scandal in the CBS television series The Good Wife, which debuted in September 2009.
The tall, dark, and quietly imposing actor lives with girlfriend Tara Wilson. They have a son, Orion Christopher Noth, born in January 2008.
