Chris Noth and his new show Gone
Actor Chris Noth plays Frank Novak, an FBI agent in Gone which premiered on WGN America in this February. Talking about the series, Chris had said:
“Frank found the Bureau much too slow for the most difficult abduction cases, which is why he formed the task force — it’s based on an actual FBI unit. Because of the nature of abduction, you have a finite amount of time, usually less than 72 hours, to find the person alive. The conceit is that Frank’s the one who found Kick when she was a child. We bring her on because she’s lived in the wolf’s den and knows how a wolf functions.”
