Embattled actor Chris Noth suffered another blow this week amid an ongoing investigation of charges of sexual assault. New reports have emerged claiming that additional episodes featuring his And Just Like That character Mr. Big have undergone new editing to remove him completely.
TV Line reports that sources close to the production have confirmed that Mr. Big–who died in the show’s season opener–would have featured in at least one more episode this season. The character, played by Noth, would have appeared to his widow, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) as she scattered his ashes in Paris.
Now the producers of the HBO Max show have reedited the episode to eliminate Noth’s role entirely. “According to sources, And Just Like That’s creative team ultimately decided that the minimal footage Noth had shot with Parker on location in Paris was not integral to the scene, which is about Carrie finding closure via the spreading of Big’s ashes,” TV Line reports. “An insider notes that the finale was not locked at the time that the allegations against Noth were made public.”

At the time of this writing, HBO Max has not released an official statement on the matter.
Noth became the subject of scandal late last year when The Hollywood Reporter published allegations by two women that Noth had raped them in 2004 and 2015, respectively. A third woman further accused him of sexual harassment on set in a piece published by The Daily Beast. Noth has denied the allegations, claiming any sexual encounters were consensual. Nonetheless, Noth found himself fired from the TV series The Equalizer and dropped by his talent agency.
The stars of And Just Like That, for their part, have expressed support for Noth’s accusers. “We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences,” actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristen Davis said in a joint-authored official statement. “We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it.”
“”The character, played by Noth, would have appeared to his widow, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) as she scattered his ashes in Paris.””
Off topic, but I am so tired and bored by directors using the ploy of having dead people speak to a character rather than just having the actors act out how they feel. If anybody watched the show “13 Reasons Why”, that seemed to be the entire story arc, having the dead girl appear to the guy and having him have long conversations with her. Which, if that was really happening he would need to go in for a scan and a meeting with a therapist.
“Six Feet Under” was the exception that proved the rule. I think the late Nathaniel Sr. appeared in every episode. But it worked for that show.
Absolutely! It was a show about death and that worked for it.
Somewhere Kim Cattrall is laughing her beautiful ass off bc she avoided this train wreck.
I don’t believe a word on what they say about that Noth guy because they waited until now to accuse. Accusations are not convictions. They didn’t become Mrs. Noth and that pissed them off. It has been known that women who have consented to sex later screamed accusations of rape. We live by rule of law not rule of public opinion. Unfortunately boys are stupid, they don’t record these escapades, not to put them on porn sites but to present evidence of consent. I told my nephew to record all his hookups with girls and keep them in a safe place because you’ll never know when you need to present the evidence of your innocence and not to tell anyone. Gays should do it too.
No, “gays” should not make sex videos of people without their consent. That is illegal. If you hve nothing useful to say try being quiet.
You posted the exact same thing a while ago.
1. The accusations from Beverley Johnson are decades old, and she was making a ton of money at the time.
2. Zoe Lister Jones is a producer, director, actor who was married during the time she said Noth was behaving like this, so a married successful woman is pissed because a guy she WASN’T dating didn’t marry her?
Did you post this comment while riding on the shortbus or after you got off?
You pretty much hit the nail on the head. People like you will demand that nothing happen to the accused male but will turn around and make unsubstantiated claims about the woman and happily subject her to trail by public opinion. Which is it? Do we resolve these issues in court or not? You can’t have it both ways. It’s this type of sexism and blatant hypocrisy that make women not want to come forward.
Sadly regardless if you’re innocent or not, you’re guilty in the public eye. If you were a celebrity somehow you must be able to protect yourself from this. I am not saying Noth is not guilty, But if you’re an actor/actress you really have to be careful. Even if he came out as innocent in court his career is ruined. Just like when someone is accused of pedophilia and are eventually found innocent their lives are destroyed.
Azis Ansari was accused and the complaint turned out to be bogus and his career is fine.
And just like that he never existed
And just like that his colleagues of umpteen years turned on him? And just like that this reboot is in hospice care! It is so bad it’s like watch a train wreck! All those years he worked with this crew and all these years no women came forward and now all of a sudden?
It’s a shame a show would turn their back without any of the allegations being turned into convictions. I am also still wondering why it took so long for people to come forward. Seem more like regret for bad decisions v. being forced.
I couldn’t even get through the first episode.
Parker’s show “Divorce” with Thomas Hayden Church was way better.
