(Newser) – New York City mayor-elect Bill de Blasio will soon get down to the business of filling his many administration posts, and rumor has it one of them might go to a Hollywood star. Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, one of de Blasio's earliest supporters, is apparently in the running for a gig as the head of the Department of Cultural Affairs, reports Politicker. Wife Christine Marinoni, a long-time, often 40-hour-a-week volunteer, helped get de Blasio elected, the New York Daily News reports, while Nixon has appeared on stage with the de Blasio clan and celebrated the election win backstage last week.
