As you probably know by now, iconic 90s show Sex And The City is getting a revival.
Only three of the original four cast members have signed on for the reboot, with Kim Cattrall choosing to sit this one out.
People have been wondering who could take her place as the iconic Samantha Jones — and a lot of fans want Jennifer Coolidge to take over.
The 59-year-old Legally Blonde actress appeared on Watch What Happens Live this week, and was asked about the potential role.
“I was a huge, and still am, a Sex and the City fan. It’s one of those that you can just watch the reruns and never get tired of them,” she said of the show, which starred Cattrall, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis and aired from 1998 to 2004. “But I have to say, I am such a Kim Cattrall fan and I don’t see anyone being able to replace her in that part.”
She went on to say that Cattrall’s portrayal of Samantha was “perfect”, adding “I just don’t think you can replace her”.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson has thrown her hat in the ring to be a part of the new show.
“That would be cool. I am down, I am down!” Hudson told ET. She starred in the original SATC movie back in 2008 as Carrie’s assistant.
The new chapter of the show is titled And Just Like That… and it will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate life in their 50s.
Parker directly replied to several fans who noted she hadn’t tagged Cattrall in the teaser post. Parker replied that her reason for excluding her wasn’t because they “dislike each other.”
“No. I don’t dislike her. I’ve never said that. Never would,” she wrote. “Samantha isn’t part of this story. But she will always be a part of us. No matter where we are or what we do.”
It’s well known now that Cattrall and Parker aren’t exactly on good terms. Cattrall has said many times that she had no interest in doing a third SATC movie — let alone another series.
“I think the climate changed,” Cattrall told the Daily Record in 2016. “To have four women talking about shopping trips and spending $400 on shoes when people are having trouble putting food on the table?”
