No More ‘Sex’ for Gilles Marini

Bad news, ladies; it appears that Gilles Marini will not be prettying up the screen in the upcoming sequel to the Sex and the City movie.

E! Online reports that Marini won’t be reprising his role as Samantha Jones’ physically gifted Malibu neighbor in the next cinematic installment of SATC, which is due to begin shooting in the coming weeks.

“As far as I know, he will not be in the sequel,” Marini’s rep reveals.

Which is a shame, because Marini has not been shy about wanting to appear in the film. Discussing his decision to perform the paso doble shirtless with dance partner Cheryl Burke on the last season of Dancing With the Stars,  Marini admits, “I said, ‘Cheryl, I’m talking my shirt off. I want to show Michael I’m still in shape.’ I know he is writing beautiful things lately, and maybe he could put me in one of his projects.”

Oh, well. At least everyone got to see Gilles shirtless on TV. And as everyone knows, a shirtless Gilles Marini is never a bad thing.
