Noah Wyle: George Clooney Will be Back on ER

Noah Wyle Says Clooney's Coming Back to ER

George Clooney has been shooting down rumors of a return to ER for a few months now, but now he has former costar Noah Wyle to thank for bringing them up again.

In next week's issue of TV Guide, Wyle tells columnist Will Keck that "From what I heard, George said, 'absolutely,' schedule permitting," about returning to the show. That's totally opposite from everything we've heard from Clooney's camp till now, though the producers have said they hoped he would return.

The group of returning cast members keeps on growing: Eriq LaSalle (Peter Benton) will meet up with Wyle's John Carter for an episode that will air in the Spring: "As a result of [Carter’s] once near-fatal stabbing, which led to my subsequent drug addiction, I come back from Africa requiring additional medical treatment for my one remaining kidney. I’m embarrassed to get treatment at County General, so I go up to Northwestern to get my dialysis up there, and that’s where Dr. Benton spies my name on a patient list and comes to pay me a visit," Wyle told TV Guide. LaSalle is also directing an episode of the series.

Meanwhile, Anthony Edwards returns as Mark Greene in a flashback for the Nov. 13 episode, and Laura Innes, Paul McCrane, and Alex Kingston are also on the list of returning actors. Clooney and Julianna Margulies are among the only ex-County General folks who have yet to confirm a return, so tell me: Is it time they give in and agree to give us a glimpse into Doug and Carol's life?

I'll totally tune back in if Doug and Carol show up. I didn't reallt enjoy the show after they left. Hope this rumor is true.

Haven't watched in a long time, but I was always more of a Luka fan - is he still on the show? Glad to see Anthony Edwards returning in flashbacks - I bawled like a baby when he died. Maybe I'll tune in.

i would only watch the final episode if Doug and Carol came back , so here we r again he will surprise us like he did in "such sweet sorrow" back these days..........

the only way I'll watch is if Clooney is on- so I hope it isn't a well-kept secret. They won't get the rating unless they tease us every week and force us to watch in hope of a Dr. Ross or Nurse Hathaway sighting

I think they actually are on board for shooting a guest spot however they want to keep it more of a surprise.

Wasn't it rumored that this show wasn't actually ending? It's like 7th Heaven! I haven't watched in a long time but I saw that Anthony Edwards was going to be back and I yelped with joy!

i think that it would be the only reason that i would tune into the show - i've lost interest in it over the years and i think that if doug and carol were to come back and we could see their twins and their happy life - then there might just be a chance that i would watch again.
