“I really love that show,” Eigenberg told Us Weekly when asked about the revival. “I think it’s really interesting that they’ve brought it back."
When asked about Cynthia Nixon, his longtime co-star and onscreen wife, he gushed, "[She’s] a dream to work with."
While the 56-year-old actor is excited to see the return of the SATC universe, he shared that it doesn't feel right to return to his role without the late actress Anne Meara by his side. Meara, who played Steve’s mom, Mary Brady, died in May 2015.
"That’s kind of heartbreaking because she was a dear lady and a dear friend of mine," he shared. "It’s a sad thing to go back because that character, you know, [the] lineage is gone, and Anne as a human being wouldn’t be there. It’s a strange thing."
Offering some hope that he might return to the franchise, Eigenberg added, "But we’ll see. …If it can work out, we may be going down that road."
Chris Noth, who played Carrie Bradshaw's husband, Mr. Big, also recently teased that he, too, could return for the revival, despite a report from Page Six that said otherwise.
"Well. if Page Six says it... it must be true😉," he responded, seemingly sarcastically, to a fan on Instagram. The 66-year-old actor took it a step further on another commenter's plea for him to reprise his role, writing, "Everything changes- including announcements in the rags."
It has already been confirmed that Sarah Jessica Parker will be returning as Carrie, as well as Nixon and Kristin Davis as pals Miranda Hobbs and Charlotte York, respectively. Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones, will not be returning for the revival.
