Actor Chris Noth - aka "Big" from Sex and the City - arrived in Israel earlier this week for a short work trip. 

According to Channel 12’s Good Evening with Guy Pines, Noth is in the Jewish state in order to film an episode of Yehuda Levi’s TV series Very Important Person. In the episode, Levi – who plays a fictionalized version of himself – is finally cast in a Hollywood film featuring Noth.
And Walla! caught photos of the Good Wife actor and married father of two dining all by his lonesome at a restaurant in Jaffa on Tuesday night.
This isn’t Noth’s first time in the Holy Land – but it has been a while since his last visit. In 2004, he visited Israel on a 10-day tour organized by the Tourism Ministry. During that visit, he visited the Western Wall, the Dead Sea and Masada, and even planted a tree at a JNF forest outside of Jerusalem – a Birthright trip of sorts for celebrities. He even filmed a TV commercial for an Israeli deodorant brand.
“I feel great solidarity, as a New Yorker, being here in Israel,” Noth told reporters in 2004, according to AP. “I hope to show Americans that they should come here.”
