Soon after reports of Chris Noth signing on to reprise his role as Mr. Big come out, two other original actors, Evan Handler and David Eigenberg, are reported to join him in 'Sex and the City 2'.
Chris Noth, Evan Handler and David Eigenberg are likely to make another appearance as Mr. Big, Harry Goldenblatt and Steve Brady respectively in "Sex and the City 2". Marc Malkin of E! Online broke the news that the three have signed on deals to reprise their "Sex and the City" roles in the sequel.
First to be confirmed boarding the second big screen adaptation of the HBO's dramedy series was Noth. His involvement on the sequel was shared to E! by co-star Sarah Jessica Parker when the Hollywood leading lady was at the "Wonderful World" premiere Monday, April 27, during the Tribeca Film Festival.
Then, on Tuesday, April 28, Malkin claimed a source has informed him that Handler and Eigenberg have followed Noth's footstep in signing deal to return for the sequel. "Evan Handler and David Eigenberg 'have just closed their deals to come back'," so he wrote. He further noted that Eigenberg's agent has confirmed the news, though Handler's rep remained mum.
After months of speculations, "Sex and the City 2" has got thumbs up earlier this year with all four main actresses, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, agreeing to make their return. Writer/director Michael Patrick King has also been set to tackle the sequel. The shooting could begin this summer for a May 28, 2010 U.S. release.
