American actor Chris Noth, who played the other half of Carrie in “ Sex and the City, ” has refuted claims that he will not return when the series reboots.
According to E! News, the 66-year-old actor slyly responded to fans on Instagram bemoaning his absence from HBO Max’s upcoming series, “And just like that …” One wrote, “Why for heaven’s sake you are not playing my dear mr big ?? my heart is [broken heart emoji]. “
The “Law & Order” star mysteriously replied, “Everything is changing – including the ads in the rags.”
Another social media user asked him not to ‘make us sad again’ and to ‘please reconsider’, which led Noth to address a February 18 Page Six story claiming that he didn’t was not going to be in the revival.
The ‘Cast Away’ star replied, “Well, if page six says so … it must be true,” with a blinking face.
Fans now expect him to announce in the next few days or weeks that he will in fact join Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis on screen. Each of the prominent women earns $ 1 million for each of the 10 episodes, which also makes it a potentially lucrative gig for Noth. Her character, Mr. Big, appeared on the show from 1998 to 2004 and returned for both films, which depicted her much-anticipated marriage to the show’s protagonist, Carrie Bradshaw, played by Parker.
Notably, an absent face in “ And Just Like That … ” will be that of Kim Cattrall, who played the sex-love Samantha Jones.
E! News reported that Casey Bloys, director of content for HBO Max, spoke about how her publicist character would be approached in the cover. “Just like in real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade and new friendships begin. So I think this is all very revealing of real stages, real stages in life.” , he explained.
Bloys added, “They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York City. So everything should feel a little organic, and the friends you have when you’re 30, you can. not to be when you are 50 years old. “
Last month, Cattrall apparently hinted at the reason for his decision to pass up the new opportunity, as rumors surfaced about his feud with the rest of the cast. The actor liked a fan’s post which said, “I love Sex and the City and while I am saddened that Samantha is not coming back, I applaud doing what is best for you and I think that’s a great example of putting yourself first. ”
Production is expected to start in the spring.
