In today's roundup of things we absolutely did not see coming, it turns out Britney Spears' fiancé Sam Asghari almost starred alongside Sarah Jessica Parker in And Just Like That – the much-awaited Sex and the City reboot – as Carrie Bradshaw's latest love interest. Yep, it's the real life/TV crossover we never knew we needed, and honestly we're pretty darn sad we'll never get to see it.

"Man, I was looking forward to this role for the reboot of Sex and the City, And Just Like That," he told his 2.3 million Instagram followers in a post on his Story [per US Weekly]. "Shout out to the dude that got it! It was a dope role."

Based on his post, it seems Asghari is hinting he auditioned for a role on last night's "Tragically Hip" episode. In the episode, Bradshaw (played by SJP) finds herself attracted to her physical therapist, Travis, after becoming single once again following the death of her *SPOILER ALERT* husband, Mr Big.

Thankfully, if you still want to see the 27-year-old personal trainer on the small screen, there's hope yet. Earlier this year, Asghari landed a role on HBO's Hacks, playing a sexy Santa Claus, which you can see a clip of on his Instagram. Speaking about his role on the show, he told Variety: "It’s only a few seconds, but it’s such a strong few seconds."

And Just Like That continues on Thursday at 9pm on Now.
