No new column today, and so I thought I'd dip into the archives again. This is one of the goofiest things my editors have ever agreed to publish. At the start of the fifth season of "ER," Noah Wyle grew a very shaggy beard, and the fans didn't take well to their baby-faced hero suddenly looking like a mountain man. Up until Keri Russell got a short haircut on "Felicity" a few years later, I had never seen such an angry on-line reaction to an actor's grooming choices, and so I thought it would be important to get The Beard's side of the story. This is that story, which originally ran on Sept. 24, 1998. You can read it over at NJ.com.
