Chef,Top Chef host, and all-around rocker Tom Colicchio tells the Hollywood Reporter about an early missed opportunity with television stardom. Apparently he was slated to appear in the pilot episode of Sex and the City. "It was shot in my restaurant when I had Gramercy Tavern," he says, "and they wanted me by the grill." Fate, however, had other plans: "I screwed up my leg, so I was on crutches, and we had a fire in the restaurant the night before so we couldnt light the grill." [HR]
