Courteney Cox Talks Bringing Her 'Friends' To 'Cougar Town'
Lisa Kudrow is heading to “Cougar Town,” Access Hollywood has confirmed.
Courteney Cox told TV Guide that her former TV “Friend” has been asked to appear on the show during November sweeps, and on Monday night, a rep for ABC confirmed to Access the deal has been finalized.
“If it all works out, she’ll play a dermatologist that my character can’t stop going to even though the doctor is mean to me,” Courteney told TV Guide. “She’s the best in town at what she does and I become addicted.”
The pairing of Lisa and Courteney will be the second time the two have reunited for a project in recent months.
In June, Courteney played the part of a psychic on Lisa’s Internet series, “Web Therapy.”
And Lisa isn’t the only “Friend” Courteney has approached for her hit ABC comedy.
She told TV Guide she also asked her former “Friends” husband, Matthew Perry, to appear as another love interest.
“I did ask Matthew if he’d play my boyfriend on the show,” she said. “He thought it was a little too much after Chandler and Monica.”
Courteney has also mulled over the idea of bringing Jennifer Aniston to her show about a single mom who starts dating younger men.
“I’d love for her to be on the show, too,” Courteney said. “Obviously we can’t cast her so close to Lisa’s appearance but if there’s a great part for her, I’d send it right away. She’s younger than me so she can’t play my contemporary even though she did on Friends, but I think we can find something great for her to play.”
