With the trades now confirming what Michael Patrick King told Extra earlier this week, Chris Noth is giving mad props to the Sex and the City filmmakers for squeezing in Big. "I was thrilled that the producers were able to work around my Law & Order: Criminal Intent schedule," the actor tells the New York Daily News.

Noth also likes what he sees in the Sexy flick, saying, "I am happy to be back in the flesh as Mr. Big, especially after reading Michael Patrick King's script." Yeah, being surrounded by fab femmes is always a good read.
