Fan favourite to return for SATC reboot
And just like that … Aidan is back.
Sex and the City star John Corbett revealed to Page Six that he will reprise his role of Carrie Bradshaw's ex-fiance, Aidan Shaw, in the hotly anticipated show reboot.
"I'm going to do the show," he told us in a new interview, adding that the news is "very exciting" for him.
As for how many episodes he'll appear in, Corbett said, "I think I might be in quite a few."
"I like all those people, they've been very nice to me," he added.
HBO declined to comment.
On the long-running HBO show, Corbett, 59, played hapless furniture designer Aidan, whom Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie not only cheated on with Mr. Big (Chris Noth), but subsequently dumped when he wanted to get married.
The character of Aidan reappeared in the movie sequel, Sex and the City 2, running into his ex-love in Abu Dhabi, where the two shared a romantic meal and even a kiss (albeit, regrettable on Carrie's part).
The upcoming 10-episode revival, which will drop locally on Binge, is titled And Just Like That …. It will feature three-quarters of the leading ladies - Parker, Cynthia Nixon (Miranda) and Kristin Davis (Charlotte).
Kim Cattrall has repeatedly refused to join any kind of revival and has famously feuded with Parker in the past.
Corbett told us he never noticed any tension on set but did note, "I only worked with Sarah Jessica Parker. I think I had one scene with all the girls."
"They were always cordial," he continued. "Cordial with me. I got to know the other girls because when you show up for work, you've got to wait a few hours while they finish up a scene, but we always had nice chats and hugs. I never saw it or heard about it."
As for Mr. Big, Page Six reported in February that actor Chris Noth would not be part of the reboot, but he later hinted on social media that he could have a role.
The limited series doesn't yet have a premiere date.

Corbett can currently be seen in "Rebel," a drama inspired by Erin Brockovich and starring Katey Sagal. In it, he plays Sagal's third husband.
