Chris Noth will not reprise role as Mr Big in Sex and the City reboot alongside Sarah Jessica Parker
CHRIS Noth will not reprise his role as Mr. Big in the Sex and the City reboot alongside Sarah Jessica Parker.
The 66-year-old actor played the Carrie Bradshaw's main love interest in the original series and its two movies.
Page Six confirmed that Chris won't reprise the famous role in the upcoming reboot for HBO Max.
Big appeared as the love interest to Sarah's character Carrie over the course of the hit show’s six seasons, which aired on HBO from 1998-2004.
After one failed wedding attempt at the beginning of the 2008 film Sex and the City, the pair eventually tied the knot by the end of the movie.
Chris also appeared in the 2010 film Sex and the City 2, where the couple faced struggles in their relationship but ultimately chose to try to make their marriage work.
Page Six also reported that David Eigenberg won't be returning for the reboot.
The actor appeared in the show and movies as Cynthia Nixon's character Miranda Hobbes’s love interest, Steve Brady.
In addition to Sarah and Cynthia, the original series starred Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones and Kristin Davis as Charlotte York.
Sarah, Cynthia and Kristin are all reprising their roles, while Kim has refused to reprise the role in the upcoming revival.
Kim's refusal to reprise the role is likely due to her years-long public feud with Sarah.
Back in 2019, the actress told Daily Mail that she would “never” return to the franchise.
The 64-year-old actress explained: “You learn lessons in life and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.”
The revival has already been met with backlash from fans, as some vowed to boycott the long-awaited spin off due to its "f**king insensitive" focus on the coronavirus pandemic.
Sarah, 52, recently told Vanity Fair that the show will tackle of pandemic, stating: "I have great faith that the writers are going to examine it all."
She added: "Obviously [it will] be part of the storyline, because that’s the city [these characters] live in, and how has that changed relationships once friends disappear?"
Her comments were quickly met with a flurry of negativity on Twitter, as one person wrote: "Yeah, def not watching SATC for deep feelings about Covid. Idek who thought that would be a good idea but no."
Another Twitter user posted: "Keep Covid-19 out of my TV shows!!!!! #SATC," while a third remarked: "Wow I want nothing less than SATC doing Covid, thank you."
Back in January, a source exclusively told The Sun that Sarah asked her 11-year-old twins for their permission before she agreed to join the revival.
According to the insider, the mom-of-three would not budge on the family-focused demands during discussions with HBO.
She made sure that husband Matthew Broderick and twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha were "on board and happy" with their "mom going back to work."
In addition to the twins, the couple also share 18-year-old son James.
