Big! Aidan! The men of Sex and the City stole the show just as much as the HBO hit’s four leading ladies. From Chris Noth to John Corbett and more, the fellas have gone on to great things since the show ended its six-season run and spawned two movies.
Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) stirred up plenty of trouble in their love lives, with the help of everyone from boyfriends to husbands to best guy pals.
The drama found its way offscreen too. Mario Cantone, who played Anthony Marantino, made his feelings known after a third film was put on the backburner. “It’s not gonna get done!” he said during a November 2017 appearance on The Wendy Williams Show. “And yes, we’re all very upset about it. I’m very pissed off about it.”
The actor added: “Some of us needed the freaking work! So it’s really upsetting.”
Cattrall was initially blamed for the canceled project, leading to speculation of a feud between the Tell Me a Story actress and Parker. The Divorce star denied the rift rumors in April 2018.
Jason Lewis, for his part, was unaffected by the ordeal. “I didn’t really think much of it at all. People like to make mountains out of molehills and I didn’t really pay that much attention to it,” he told Us Weekly exclusively in October 2018. “I don’t pay much attention to derogatory rancor if I can avoid it. We’ve got enough of it floating around the world, so I don’t try to promote and I try to pay attention to it very little.” The actor played Smith Jerrod on the series.
Sex and the City aired on HBO from 1998 to 2004. The first film debuted in 2008, while the sequel, Sex and the City 2, premiered in 2010.
While a third film never happened without Cattrall, the world of Sex and the City will return in a revival show. Many of the men will join Parker, Nixon and Davis to reprise their roles in the HBO Max sequel series, And Just Like That, which started filming in July 2021.
