Aidan Shaw returns!
Actor John Corbett, who played Carrie Bradshaw's other big love on Sex and the City, revealed the big news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing March 31.
When Ellen DeGeneres asked Corbett, 48, if he's appearing in the sequel, he replied, "These rumors started about seven months ago because somebody took a picture of me in Morocco," where the film shot for weeks.
"I felt really bad because for the last six months every time somebody said, are you in this movie? I had to lie about it."
The star continued: "I just found out I'm going to be in the trailer so I get to break the news …Aidan gets to come back to Sex and the City." He didn't share any plot specifics.
United States of Tara star Corbett didn't appear in the first Sex film, which focused on Carrie's (Sarah Jessica Parker) disastrous, cancelled marriage to Mr. Big (Chris Noth) and the aftermath.
Sex and the City 2 premieres May 27 and, in addition to the core cast of Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, features cameos by Miley Cyrus, Penelope Cruz and Liza Minnelli.
