Two old “Friends” are being reunited! Lisa Kudrow, who played the role of Phoebe on Friends, is going to be guest starring on Cougartown, the sitcom about a woman entering into her 40s, which stars Courteney Cox.
ABC confirmed the casting news to TV Guide, saying Lisa will start shooting in early 2010. Courteney told TV Guide, “She’ll play a dermatologist that my character can’t stop going to even though [she's] mean to me.”
She continued, “The show’s writers are not exactly sure yet, but whatever it is, she’s the best in town at what she does and I become addicted.”
Now all we need are Ross, Rachel, Joey, and Chandler to complete the party! Cox did say she already approached Matthew Perry to be on the show, as well as her close friend Jennifer Aniston.
“I did ask Matthew if he’d play my boyfriend on the show,” she says, “but he thought it was a little too much after Chandler and Monica.” Then there’s Jennifer…“I’d love for her to be on the show, too,” 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.”
