Chris Noth has addressed speculation he won’t appear in the Sex and the City revival as Mr Big.
‘And Just Like That…’ will follow Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) as they navigate love and friendship in their 50s.
Big was the boyfriend and later husband of Carrie Bradshaw, and their on-off romance was a major story-line in the original series.
Earlier this month, Page Six reported that Chris would not be reprising his role in the 10-episode series.
Taking to the comment section of his latest Instagram post, a fan wrote: “Dear Mr Noth … why for heaven’s sake are you not playing my beloved Mr Big? My heart is 💔 …”
The actor replied: “Everything changes – including announcements in the rags.”
Another fan asked Chris to “please reconsider” reprising his role, to which he replied: “Well if Page Six says it… it must be true😉”.
Production for the highly anticipated reboot is set to kick off in New York City this Spring, and the actresses are set to make over $1 million per episode.
As we previously reported, Kim Cattrall won’t return to reprise her role as Samantha Jones in the reboot.
Kim has had a long-running feud with SJP – which has been well-documented in the press.
Back in 2017, Kim spoke about their feud on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, and claimed Sarah “could have been nicer”.
“This is really where I take to task the people from Sex And The City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, is that I think she could have been nicer. I really think she could have been nicer. I don’t know what her issue is,” she said at the time.
“The thing that still bothers me is this feeling of being in some way made to be the baddie. I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects, to be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous.”
Months later, their feud hit headlines once again in 2018, when Kim slammed SJP for reaching out to her in the wake of her brother’s death.
After the actress announced her brother’s passing on Instagram, Sarah Jessica commented: “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.”
In a shocking move, the 64-year-old fired back by dedicating a post to SJP, and wrote: “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker.”
