Fans of “Sex and the City” have been celebrating the big news since January – the series returns in the form of an HBO Max revival entitled “And Just Like That”.
Questions have come with the celebration, including who exactly is coming back. For the core quartet at the heart of the story, everyone but Samantha (Kim Cattrall) will return. And of course there has already been a leak about a “big” male star who won’t repeat his role.
But what about Trey MacDougal, Charlotte York’s ex? Kyle MacLachlan, the man behind the character with mom issues, spoke about it during a visit on TODAY Monday.
What he revealed is that if Trey returns, it will be news for him.
“I haven’t heard anything so far,” said the 62-year-old.
MacLachlan joined the series at the beginning of the third season and left when the fourth season ended. Hence, his relationship with Charlotte might not have much going for them on rebooting. But that doesn’t mean the star doesn’t see a way to bring back his character.
He just sees Trey as a better addition to another series.
“I’m waiting for the Trey and Bunny Show,” he said with a laugh. “You may remember that Frances Sternhagen played my mother (Bunny) in the original.”
How could a fan forget? After all, one of the most memorable scenes from season four of “Sex and the City” was when Charlotte walked into Trey while he was taking a bath – while Bunny was sitting next to him and talking to her naked son.
MacLachlan said TODAY in 2018: “Every time I was allowed to work with Frances Sternhagen, it was a pleasure because the situations in which they had us as mother and son were so uncomfortable.” Then he remembered that aforementioned moment and added, “There was a special scene where I was taking a bath and she was sitting on the toilet and smoking a cigarette and we were talking. And Charlotte comes in and of course. Kristin Davis has the greatest expression of shock and disgust on her face and “What do I do now?” That was a particularly nice memory. “
During his Monday interview, the actor, who is also known for his roles on “Twin Peaks”, “Desperate Housewives” and “Portlandia”, said of his Trey Bunny idea: “I thought this would be a good offshoot.”
And he could be there on something!
