I had to stop watching E.R. when they killed off Doctor Mark Greene. I really like Anthony Edwards, and even though his performance on E.R. was brilliant, there is another that is my favorite.
I just love him in the movie Miracle Mile with Mare Winningham. They both gives great performances, especially Anthony Edwards. I also enjoy his performance in the television version of Capote's In cold blood.
I haven't seen the Zodiac Killer movie that he is in yet, but I plan on it because it is directed by my favorite director David Fincher, so I am sure that it too will be awesome. I am always pleased with the performances that Anthony Edwards gives, even in Pet Cemetery 2 he gave it his all. Great actor, wish we saw more of him.
I know I really felt the loss of Dr Mark Greene from ER in 2002. I sat and cried along with thousands of others around the world when the character slipped quietly into death. I cried with the same people when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and cried again watching Elizabeth (Alex Kingston) try and go on without him. Dr Greene was, to me, a hugely integral character in teh success of ER in the early seasons. He was mentor, best friend, lover, father, doctor extraordinaire. From looking after his ailing father to marrying Elizabeth, Dr Greene did it all on the show and the show was and is better for having had the character there at all.
When most people hear the name Anthony Edwards, they immediately think of him on television's wildly popular "E.R." However, Edwards got his start at a much younger age in such films as "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" and "Revenge of the Nerds." I thought he was better in these comedic roles, but he has proven that he can adapt his skills as he has aged.
I am not the most technically familiar with a wide range of the films concerning Anthony Edwards, but frequenting "ER" upon it's earlier years, I feel that I came to know Mark Greene pretty well. he was such a good guy. Sensitive,strong, morally righteous, and ultimately the heart of the medical drama. Even now, as it has been four years since his tragic departure from the series, I still remember his character very fondly, and I enjoy watching re-runs, as they are a great means to reminise about the older days of the show, when he was a very big part of the show.
I also enjoy other aspects of his career such as "The Sure Thing" and "Fast Times @ Ridhmont High", among others. I personally see him as this almost mystical figure, as he inspired so much goodness for me, and he made me laugh when such ER episodes as "A Shift In The Night" occured. The episode depicted his character going through a turn of unlucky events, and the way Edwards used his crat to show us the grief and the regret was bin a way that both made us laugh, and empathize with him. It was great then, and it is now. I only wish he did more work again. I see to recall his departure from ER having to do with a new daughter at the time. I wonder if he'll start work again, as in serious productions again. I certainly wish him the best, and I look forward to future projects with him taking part in.
been a fan of his since Fast times at ridgemont high, and he was the main reason I watched ER from day one, still really enjoy the reruns with Dr Greene, Haven't seen in much since ER,only in a couple roles, miss him and would like to see more of him

The character of Mark Greene was a wonderful fit for Anthony Edwards as he was the driving force behind the ER but the show was also built on his shoulders. His supporting cast was great but without this central role to bring the show along for many years it would have died not much farther beyond a first or second season. Anthony Edwards was not just a good actor but and exceptional actor that was extremely suited for the role given to him. He developed this bond with the viewers that transended over time to create real emotions upon his death. The episode of ER "On the Beach" brought me as close to tears as I have ever been in my life. The mastery of Anthony Edwards to perform not as an actor but as a person with a real life brought the Mark Greene beyond a once a week fix to a friend. He brought the character to life.
