We all knew this was gonna happen.
Along with Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox starred in one of the most popular ensemble TV comedies of all time. It’s inevitable that at least one of her former Friends co-stars will eventually show up on her new ABC comedy, Cougar Town, for a guest spot. Even show creator Bill Lawrence knows that this is something the TV Gods demand.
“You and I both know that we’ll do that eventually,” Lawrence told EW‘s Michael Ausiello about the possibility.
But don’t expect to see any of Cox’s old friends visiting Cougar Town any time soon. ABC is set on selling the show’s star and not potential guest actors this fall, Lawrence said.
Former cast members reuniting on new shows is nothing new. We’ll see it again this fall when the entire cast of Seinfeld reunites for an arc on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. Cox and Kudrow recently shared the screen together in an episode of Kudrow’s online comedy Web Therapy. It was the first time the two worked on something together since Friends ended in 2004, and it was pretty darn funny.
Which former Friends star would you most like to see appear in Cougar Town? This might be an unpopular choice, but I’d love to see Matt LeBlanc enter a world scripted by Bill Lawrence, the creator of Scrubs. Something tells me marvelous things could happen with that.
Personally I’d love to see Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry in the show. Comment below and let us know who you’d like to see..
