ER star Noah Wyle's two-year-old son Owen has dreamed up an inventive way to get out of carrying out the tasks he doesn't want to do - he's created an alter-ego.

The resourceful tot voices his objections through another character to escape getting into trouble.

Wyle says, "He's very independent and he's very headstrong and likes to do things himself.

"He's got an alter-ego personality named JACKO PENINO. When he doesn't wanna do something he suddenly becomes Jacko Penino. When Owen doesn't wanna do something then Jacko comes in and plays hardball with you. We all could use a Jacko Penino."
