Chris Noth does not actually appear in Philip Seymour Hoffman’s directorial debut Jack Goes Boating, a drama starring John Ortiz and PSH himself as a pair of limo drivers in complicated romantic relationships. Still, it’s a good thing we caught up with Noth at the movie’s premiere last week, because he had interesting things to say about Sex and the City. Take it away, Mr. Big: “It’s over. The franchise is dead. The press killed it. Your magazine fucking killed it. New York Magazine. It’s like all the critics got together and said, ‘This franchise must die.’ Because they all had the exact same review. It’s like they didn’t see the movie. Got any more gum?” (Note: That’s not a reference to anything. He really asked us if we had any more gum.) For a few less ornery celebrity quotes, click through our Party Lines slideshow.
