Noah Wyle: "The Red Line", multiple intense scenes

In Noah Wyle's new show, "The Red Line", he plays a man whose husband is accidentally shot and killed by a cop, and he is pretty much teary throughout the first two episodes and doing great work.  This is what he said about it in an interview:
“Emotionally, I never turned it off,” Wyle says. “It was just one of those things that moved me. It was one of those things where I cried at the table read. I cried at the rehearsal. I cried in every shot. The well never ran dry on this one because it felt really important to me in a way that I have never really experienced before. I decided if I was going to keep doing this for a living, I had to be willing to put myself out there.”
Then there are these two scenes.  
The first is of him texting his dead husband and breaking down:
The second is a heart-wrenching speech he makes at a gala, talking about his dead husband.  There are definitely tears and I'm assuming from his quote above that they were real:                
ADDITION: He wasn't exaggerating in the above quote.  He really does seem to have cried all the way through this.  Here's three scenes from the 3rd episode (in one video), first a deposition with the cop who killed his husband, then confronting the cop, then sobbing in his friend's arms:

Oh he's a versatile and expressive crier for sure. He cries in a variety of ways here. There's the  'soundless focus on a cryface fueled by raw grief', the 'wet eyes and/or streaming tears and unsteady voice trying to keep it together', and the 'undignified and wrenching sobbing in friend's arms'. He really went for it with this role and I think he nailed it.

I'd seen him cry on ER, but it was only once, and the crying moment itself was so brief. I love how much longer he tends to cry here.

Don't mind me, I'm just here to fill my lachrimatory.

Oh, I LOVE me some Dr. John Carter! Not sure which scene you’re referring to, but here’s a clip that has a fantastic sobbing scene toward the end after being accused of diverting drugs on the job:

And if you have Hulu, season 10 episode 21, around 30 minutes in leads to one of my all time favorite sobbing scenes ever. So much sorrow and heartbreak. He is absolutely wonderful🥰

Oh wow that was a beautiful scene! And much longer than the one I knew about: which itself is longer than I remembered. I must have gotten it confused with something else. 
I do have Hulu and I will definitely look that up. Thank you for the lead! It seems that Noah should get more credit for being such a good crier.
