DOOL: Where Are They Now? The Busy Life of Noah Segan
Noah G. Segan (IMDB)
Days of Our Lives fans will likely remember Noah G. Segan best for taking on the role of Connor Lockhart, the younger son of the frequently dysfunctional Lockhart family. He was brought away from the rodeo circuit and back to Salem briefly by his mother Bonnie to help in her bumbling schemes. The young actor took the role and made it his own in the brief weeks that he claimed it. But that was only one chapter in what has shaped up to be a very busy career. The New York native wrapped his time on Days around the same time that he had two films coming out. In What We Do Is Secret, he played Don Bolles, drummer of the notorious punk band The Germs and then completely changed tack to appear in the coming-of-age flick Still Green. Since leaving daytime at the end of February 2007, he has shot roles in five feature films and has two in production.
Fans of horror films will find him on display in several guises over the next year. They can catch him as JT in the film Deadgirl, which promises to be far more intriguing than it may sound. It comes from the strangely promising combination of the producers of Hellraiser and cult comedy The Heathers. In a more humorous vein, he'll also be appearing in a small role as Star Wars character Boba Fett in the comedy Fanboys, due for release on January the 14th. Straying back into horror, Mr Segan recently completed work on Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, the sequel to the hit 2002 Hollywood film. Straying far away from the lights of LA, however, the actor took a leading role in a Belgian-Canadian co-production. He will be starring as Harry Green, a mentally unstable young artist who attempts to escape the clutches of his domineering mother and find love. The film so-stars veteran actress Margot Kidder and is currently expected to be released this February.
Turning back to Hollywood, Segan took a role in the unusual thriller The Brothers Bloom, starring Mark Ruffalo and Adrien Brody. That film, in which he plays The Duke, reunited him with Rian Johnson, his director in the award-winning film Brick. It also brought him back to Europe and while there he went to Belgium for another Canadian-Belgian co-production, The Hessen Affair. That film, a historical thriller starring Billy Zane, tells the story of American officers who swiped German jewels at the end of the Second World War to sell them in New York. Currently, Segan's taken on yet another role in a horror film, this time featuring the master of weird and twisted characters, Brad Dourif. It's called Chain Letter and follows a homicidal maniac who fulfills the threat of everyone's least favorite practical joke: a chain letter which brings doom to those who refuse to follow its instructions.
