What Have the Sex and the City Boyfriends Been Up To?

The very first episode of Sex and the City premiered 20 years ago next month. To mark this auspicious anniversary, ELLE.com is celebrating some of its most ridiculous, memorable and controversial moments—from the fashion to the flings. While the show focused on the four stylish ladies of Manhattan, it wouldn’t have been the same without the love and heartbreak caused by its male co-stars. We’ve tracked down the SATC boyfriends to see what they’re up to now.

1

Chris Noth (Mr. Big)

Then: Where do we start? Mr. Big’s failure to commit sent Carrie (and viewers) through an emotional rollercoaster. Big and Carrie finally got it right in the first Sex and the City movie when they get married at City Hall, following a disastrous wedding.

Now: Noth went on the star in The Good Wife. He also appears in the drama series Gone, which airs overseas in the UK.

Jason Lewis (Smith Jerrod)

Then: Thanks to Samantha, Smith went from waiter to Hollywood hottie. His love and support for Samantha, even when she was going through chemo, made him an instant fan favorite.

Now: Jason Lewis has kept up a relatively steady acting profile and now stars in NBC’s Midnight Texas. Even though he was Team Samantha on-screen, Lewis weighed in on the rumored feud between Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall and sided with Parker.

Blair Underwood (Robert Leeds)

Then: Before Miranda found her way back to Steve, she tested out a fling with her neighborhood and sports doctor Robert Leeds. Robert ended up telling Miranda he loved her but she didn’t feel the same way. He didn’t take the breakup too well and began to act childish when he and Miranda crossed paths in the hallway of the apartment building. To be fair, Miranda did kind of treat him like crap.

Now: Underwood has appeared on Agents of S.H.E.I.D, among other TV series like The Lion Guard and Quantico.
