Actress Cynthia Nixon, who portrays lawyer Miranda Hobbes, told me exclusively that filming could commence in 2009.
“We are definitely talking about it,” said Nixon. “Our hope is, if everything keeps moving forward, we would maybe start shooting summer of next year.”
In the meantime, Nixon passes her time by campaigning for Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. But the Broadway and Silver Screen star had a message specific to those in Scranton who supported Senator Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Presidential Primary.
“Think to yourself, ‘What would Hillary do?’ Hillary would vote for Barack Obama.”
Nixon and I also spoke about gay marriage – and the recent comments by Governor Sarah Palin on a constitution ban of same-sex weddings. The statements didn’t sit well with Nixon, who is an outted lesbian.
The actress is outspoken about Breast Cancer. Nixon is this year’s ambassador for the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Foundation. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Nixon credits her survival of the disease to early detection and her doctor’s flexible schedule.
“I didn’t miss any performances, I had my surgery on a Sunday,” revealed Nixon, who starred on Broadway at the time. She completed her treatments during the show’s run.
If you ever receive the honor to work on set with Nixon, I’d recommend a great excuse before you try calling in sick.
THE WHITE TIE AFFAIR BREEDS HITS, JEALOUSLY
I found myself a bit jealous of Chris Wallace last week.
Wallace fronts The White Tie Affair – a band signed to Epic Records with a single called, “Candle (Sick and Tired).” It is a relatable, catchy track that gained notoriety when MTV’s The Hills featured it.
Enter my envy.
“I met Audrina, maybe a year ago – cause she works at Epic,” said Wallace – who went on to describe Patridge as “genuine.”
Obviously he was not referring to any of Audrina’s hills. Wallace seemed more intrigued with Lauren Conrad, but assured me that his band would not make any non-musical cameos on the show.
