Never mind that we can't actually name one other thing that he's starred in (OK, so he was in The Good Wife too) – we're still totally swooning over the fact that Mr Big is going to be on our screens once again tomorrow evening.

Yup none other than Chris Noth heads to Montrose for a chat with Ray on The Ray D'Arcy Show.

The Sex And The City actor is now aged 62.

And although he has a surprisingly modest presence on social media – 4.6K followers on Twitter and 10K on Instagram – a quick glance (OK, an elongated drool) at his recent posts confirms that he's still as handsome as ever.

 

The Ray D'Arcy Show tomorrow night on RTÉ One at 9:45pm.

With six full seasons – and two movies to boot – of Carrie Bradshaw's romantic antics, we can't imagine anyone else in the key Sex And The City roles.

Take Mr. Big, for example. No-one else but Chris Noth could have charmed Carrie with that smile as she dropped an entire handbag full of condoms onto the ground, we're sure of it.

But if things had gone a little differently, Carrie's main squeeze could have been played by someone else entirely. SATC's creator Darren Starr revealed in an interview this week that he had someone entirely different in mind for the role.

"I was thinking of Alec Baldwin for Big initially," Darren admitted, adding that he didn't know much about Chris Noth before meeting him for his first audition. 

"I don’t really watch Law & Order [Chris's main show prior to SATC], but I met with Chris Noth and thought he was perfect.

"I remember the first table read, how good he was. I’m not saying that Chris was Mr. Big, but he brought a lot of his own persona to the role."

Abso-f***in'-lutely, he did.

But it's not just Big who could have been played by a very different face – Darren revealed he had another actor in mind for the role of Aidan too.

"We initially were thinking about Aidan Quinn for Aidan, but I think he wasn’t available. 

"I loved John Corbett [the actor who eventually went on to play Aidan] in Northern Exposure, and we were like, ‘Well, what’s John Corbett been up to?’

"He just had the laconic, dudish vibe. But we kept ‘Aidan’ because we loved the name."

Okay, Alec Baldwin we can *just* about get over, but someone else in the role of Aidan? No. JUST NO.

Sex And The City fans, get yourselves on a bus to Cavan stat.

One of the show's biggest stars, Chris Noth, is in the area, having arrived at the local library yesterday with a crew from the US genealogy show Who Do You Think You Are.

Yup, one of Mr. Big's great grandparents was a Cavan native, and Chris can trace his roots all the way back to Knockbride, near Bailieborough.

"I had no idea who was coming until about 4pm the day before," Tom Sullivan, Cavan's County Librarian told Today FM this morning.

"The whole process took most of the day, there was a lot of waiting around, but he was happy to sit and relax and read some of our books."

And if you're thinking Chris Noth might have been a bit of a d**khead like his Good Wife character, you'd be oh-so wrong, it seems.

"Absolutely no demands at all, an absolute gentleman," said Tom.

"He came in and got some photos taken, he was delighted to be in Cavan. He was enthralled with the greenness of the country.

"There was a queue of people to see him, and he was most obliging in all aspects, an absolute gent, he couldn't have been more decent."

And now for the most important thing – WHERE IS HE TODAY?

"I have a feeling that they're somewhere in Cavan," says Tom. 

"He may just be touring around or doing more work for the show."

See you in Cavan, ladies.
