And Just Like That… Sam Asghari was nearly in the Sex and the City reboot.
On Wednesday, Dec. 29, the 27-year-old actor, who recently got engaged to Britney Spears in September, revealed on his Instagram Story that he had auditioned for the role of Travis, Carrie’s physical therapist, who appeared in the show’s fifth episode.
Posting a photo of himself on his now-expired Instagram Story, Sam explained that he unfortunately ended up not receiving the role. Sharing his disappointment, he wrote, “Man, I was looking forward to this role for the reboot of Sex and the City, And Just Like That.”
In a second story, Sam showed his support for the actor who played Travis by sharing a screenshot of him from the episode. “Shout out to the dude that got it!” He added. “It was a dope role.”
The character of Travis is instrumental in helping Carrie get “back in heels” after she undergoes hip surgery in the show.

But while the Black Monday actor may not be gracing our television screens again just yet, he is already confirmed to be returning to the silver screen very soon.
In October, E! News revealed that Sam will star as SWAT Sergeant Tobias in the upcoming Randall Emmett action thriller Hot Seat alongside Mel Gibson and Kevin Dillon.
His rep, Brandon Cohen, described Sam’s character as “action-oriented.”
According to Deadline, Hot Seat centers around an ex-hacker who must break into banks or face deadly consequences.
The outlet adds, “Gibson plays the man who must try to penetrate the booby-trapped building to get a man [Dillon] off the hot seat.”
