Mayor gets Sex and the City role
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg
It is not clear what Mayor Bloomberg will be doing in the film
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has landed a role in the film version of Sex and the City, starring actress Sarah Jessica Parker.

Bloomberg's spokesman, Stu Loeser, confirmed he would film an appearance at Bryant Park in Manhattan, but gave no other details about the part.

The movie - which began filming in September - reunites characters Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda.

It is based on the hit US TV series, and is due out next year.

The show followed the life of New York columnist Carrie (Parker), and her three friends.

As well as Parker, all three original stars - Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon - have all signed up for the film, along with Chris Noth who played Mr Big.

Speculation has been building around what the plot has in store for the four main characters.

Bloomberg is following in the footsteps of former New York Mayor Ed Koch. He appeared in a Sex and the City episode in 2001 as himself.
