The 66-year-old actor starred on the hit series as Carrie Bradshaw’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) love interest Mr. Big, who married the journalist in the 2008 spin-off film, but he’s not getting Max’s upcoming on HBO, according to the New York Post column limited series “And Just Like That …”.
And alongside Chris, David Eigenberg, who played Miranda Hobbes’ (Cynthia Nixon) love interest Steve Brady, is also currently not scheduled for the show, though his rep told the outlet he was in negotiations to appear.
It has already been confirmed that Kim Cattrall will not return as Samantha Jones, and show bosses previously insisted that her absence would be appropriate as the program would reflect the way friendships change and develop over time.
Casey Bloys, HBO Max’s chief content officer, said, “You’re not trying to say these characters are reliving their 30s. It’s a story about women in their fifties, and they deal with things that people in their fifties deal with.
“In real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade and new friendships begin. I think it’s all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life … they’re trying to tell an honest story about how to be a woman in New York in her fifties. So it should all feel a bit organic, and the friends you have by 30 you may not have by 50. “
In addition to Sarah and Cynthia, Kristin Davis is also on board as the Charlotte York Goldenblatt.
Kim’s absence from the spin-off series also comes because she has been involved in a feud with 55-year-old Sarah Jessica for some time.
In 2017, 67-year-old Kim said she was “never friends” with her co-star before later insisting that the actress “could have been more beautiful” on the set of the popular TV show.
She said at the time: “We were never friends. We were colleagues and in a way it’s a very healthy place. “
The Filthy Rich star then said she didn’t know what Sarah Jessica’s “problem” was before later calling her “toxic” and “cruel”.
