Kim Cattrall is definitively not interested in playing Sex and the City character Samantha Jones again, so it looks like Sex and the City 3 is out. Or is it? On the January 10 episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Sarah Jessica Parker suggested a possible solution for the casting issue.
Speaking to host Stephen Colbert, the actress had a witty answer at the ready when Colbert asked which part he would play in the seemingly ill-fated flick. "Well, there's an opening," the Divorce star laughed.
Playing innocent, Colbert asked, "Oh, really? Who do I have to act like? What would my character be like?" That's when Parker cut to the chase.
"Well, according to just very recent documentation about why we’re not making [Sex and the City 3 it] is because the part usually played by Kim Cattrall has been vacated. So, that’s what I mean. Perhaps you’d want to play Samantha?,” the actress asked.
The cheeky comment came after Cattrall gave interviews that seemed to shade her former co-stars, as well as double down on her decision not to appear in the film. But, now that SJP mentions it, we could see Colbert as a high-powered New York City publicist. Hey, maybe there's hope after all!
