I don't think anyone else was ever really in the running.
It's kind of obvious Blake would be the one to fill Sarah Jessica Parker's shoes, right?
Blake Lively is set to play a young Carrie in the prequel to Sex and the City called The Carrie Diaries.
The novel-soon-to-be-movie tells the story of Carrie Bradshaw pre-Manolo Queen and pre-New York City.
I wonder if there is any actual truth to the rumours.
