Willie Garson Would Reprise Stanford for 'Carrie Diaries'
The 'White Collar' star says he'd reassume his old 'Sex and the City' alter ego if asked

As an insightful fellow somewhere once advised, "Shake what Michael Patrick King gave ya." Nearly 15 years ago, the "Sex and the City" mastermind plucked Willie Garson out of relative character-actor obscurity and made him a household name as Carrie Bradshaw's equally neurotic gay BFF, Standord Blatch. Since then, he's popped up via significant roles in films like "Fever Pitch," and as a series regular for HBO's cult cancellation "John From Cincinnati" and, most notably, Matt Bomer's duplicitous but charming sidekick Mozzie on "White Collar." But if asked to don the Stanford spectacles one more time for CW's "SATC" prequel, "The Carrie Diaries," he'd be there in a Blatch.
In an interview with Huffington Post, Garson tacitly acknowledges he's not currently in any discussions to make a guest appearance, but concedes, “If they called I would do it." He adds that, “Every time I think it is over, the phone rings again. I think it is great that people want more of these characters since we are basically in wheelchairs at this point.”
And if Garson does drop in as a 20-something Stanford, or some kind of Stanford of Fashion Future, he can at least warn young Carrie about the disastrous outfit choices she's going to make a decade later.
