Mr. Big has landed a big new role.

Chris Noth, who played Sarah Jessica Parker's love interest on Sex and the City, has been cast on the third season of Tyrant, FX announced Monday. He'll appear as American General William Cogswell, who was summarily transferred out of Abbudin. In the new season, he'll return to that country when Barry (Adam Rayner) assumes the provisional presidency. Though he'll first offer support, Cogswell will rise in power as he rekindles a romantic past with Leila (Moran Atias).

Noth famously starred as Detective Mike Logan on Law & Order. More recently, he's been busy portraying Peter Florrick on The Good Wife.

Tyrant returns with 10 new episodes later this year.
