Sex and the City "Richard" was "Samantha's" perfect match, or so it seemed. Both confident, successful, and uninterested in relationships the pair hit it off right away. Played by actor James Remar, find out what Sex and the City's "Richard" is up to today here!

Sex and the City's "Richard Wright", played by actor James Remar, was "Samantha Jones's" dream man. A powerful, wealthy, and attractive hotel magnate, "Samantha" was drawn to "Richard" both professionally and personally. 

However, "Samantha" wouldn't have an easy time landing her client or dream man. "Richard" hadn't gotten to where he was by playing nice and had quite the chauvinistic business attitude. "Samantha's" confidence would win him over in the end and lead to their personal relationship as well.

Sex and the City "Richard" and "Samantha" (played by Kim Cattrall) had a lot in common, the most important being their disinterest in serious relationships. While they both enjoyed sleeping around, this common trait would ironically lead them into a more monogamous relationship. 

Given their natural inclinations, however, it wasn't surprising when "Richard" found he couldn't commit fully and cheated on "Samantha". "Samantha" was understanding and forgave him for the indiscretion but ultimately found that she couldn't trust him anymore.
