"Friends" reunion is not getting in shape but at least two of its stars would appear in a single show in near future. Courteney Cox has confirmed that Lisa Kudrow is in talks to appear on her new sitcom "Cougar Town" which has received a full season order. ABC has confirmed the casting news and Kudrow will shoot next month for an episode airing early 2010.
"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," Cox tells TV Guide Magazine. She adds that the writers are not exactly sure whether it's related to Botox but, "whatever it is, she's the best in town at what she does and I become addicted."
Kudrow in fact is not the only "Friends" star who gets an offer from Cox. Matthew Perry who played Cox's husband on "Friends" also received the invitation. "I did ask Matthew if he'd play my boyfriend on the show, but he thought it was a little too much after Chandler and Monica," Cox reveals.
One "Friend" who is still on the card would be Jennifer Aniston whom Cox has been keen on signing. Cox says, "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."
"Cougar Town" airs on Wednesdays at 9.30/8.30c on ABC.
