Around the world with Chris Noth


Where have you just come back from?

I just went on a five-day trip to Hong Kong for the hell of it. We ate at this new, super contemporary restaurant called Bo Innovation - 15 courses in one sitting! That almost killed me. But I balanced it out with a hike up in Sai Kung, which they call the 'Back Garden' of Hong Kong. It's only 20 minutes from Kowloon, and there are wild monkeys coming right up to you, and secluded beaches that you can only access on the trail. It's a very unique city.

NBC Eyes ‘Law & Order’ Limited Series

After rebooting Heroes as a 13-episode miniseries Heroes Reborn, I hear NBC is looking to bring back its longest-running drama series, Law & Order.
Network sources caution that this is an idea that has been discussed from time to time, and a Law & Order limited series is not in active development at the moment. Still, there has been movement. I hear the network has been exploring the possibility of re-assembling the cast from the early years of the series. I hear several actors have been approached, including original cast members Chris Noth and Sam Waterston, who did not join the show until Season 5 but are the actors most closely associated with the Law & Order brand. I hear NBC is eyeing 10 new Law & Order episodes. The network had no comment.

Fernandez, Noth, Parker, Benson are Chronically Metropolitan

Shiloh Fernandez (“Evil Dead), two-time Golden Globe nominee Chris Noth (“Sex and The City”), two-time Golden Globe winner and Emmy-Award winner Mary-Louise Parker (“Weeds”) and Ashley Benson (“Pretty Little Liars”) are set to star in the comedy “Chronically Metropolitan”, it was announced today by The Community producers Jamin O’Brien (“Killer Joe”) and Daniel L. Blanc (“Boynton Beach Club”).

Xavier Manrique makes his feature film debut from a script by newcomer Nicholas Schutt. Oscar-winning director David Frankel (“Marley & Me”) is attached as executive producer.
Principal photography on the project is slated to begin in February.

The pic tells the story of first time novelist Fenton Dillane (Fernandez), who returns to New York City unannounced ready to reclaim his lost love, Jessie (Benson), who unbeknownst to him, is engaged to be married. Fenton enlists his head strong sister, Layla and his drug dealing best friend to win her back. His actions set in motion a chain of events that affect the lives of everyone around him for better and for worse.

Noth will play Fenton’s Maileresque father, Christopher, a successful novelist who’s as recognized for his Page Six worthy antics as he is for his writing. Parker will star as Diana, Fenton’s long suffering mother. A sophisticated woman, she finds herself at a crossroads in her marriage and her life. Fueled by a new found appreciation of controlled substances, she will be compelled to make hard choices likely to fracture her already fragile family.

“We are very excited to be collaborating with first timer Xavier Manrique and his mentor, David Frankel,” said The Community Co-Head Jamin O’Brien. “We want to make films that the studios have abandoned in lieu of tentpoles. CHRONICALLY METROPOLITAN is incredibly smart and full of depth, all while being commercially viable and accessible to large audiences.”

“Producer Jamin O’Brien has assembled a strong cast anchored by the talented and charming Chris Noth and Mary-Louise Parker, who will be able to showcase their comedic skills with this entertaining and light-hearted script. We look forward to launching sales on CHRONICALLY METROPOLITAN and introducing the project to our partners in Berlin,” said Anisi.
