Thursday, Jul 9, 2015

Courteney Cox, Roselyn Sanchez Join ‘Mothers Day’ Movie

Courteney Cox and Roselyn Sanchez have joined the cast of Paul Duddridge’s drama “Mothers Day,” currently in production with shooting in Los Angeles to be completed by the fall.

Previously announced cast includes Susan Sarandon and her daughter Eva Amurri Martino, Sharon Stone, Christina Ricci and Paul Wesley.

“Mothers Day” is Duddridge’s feature film debut, with Nigel Levy co-directing. The script by Paige Cameron is based on a concept by Duddridge.

Producers are Danielle James and Amy Williams, who are both working mothers. The story is focused on a rock photographer who is riding a career high when an unlikely and unexpected pregnancy forces her to turn her lens inward.

Cox just wrapped her sixth season on “Cougar Town.” She is represented by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.


“Drunk History” Recap

Thursday, Sep 4, 2014

With a few photographers and some strategically placed pillows, you too can run the country.

Drunk History has always been on a mission to tell history’s lesser known stories, so it’s fitting that the second season should end on America’s first ladies. No one seems to know anything about them, and when they do, they judge each woman based on how toned her arms are and how well she throws shade. First ladies have so much more to teach us. Let Drunk History show you the way.

With 18 months left in the White House, Woodrow Wilson had a stroke. His wife Edith (Courteney Cox) knew that he would want to finish his term in office, so she hid his condition from the public and started making presidential decisions. (“Shut up. Sit down. I am in charge now. Can I get my cheesy bread I brought?”) She promised Congress that she was only there to run memos to her husband, but in reality, Edith was running the show.

Eventually, Congress grew suspicious and sent Senator Albert Fall to see about the president’s true condition. (This was actually an episode of Scandal, am I right?) Edith cleverly propped up Woodrow so that he looked like he was working, and Fall bought it. She later did the same thing with an official photographer to appease the American public. So basically, Americans find it easier to believe that a comatose man is running the country than to believe that a woman can do the same.

“Cougar Town” Casts Matthew Perry in Season 5

Friday, Nov 15, 2013

Turnabout is fair play — especially among Friends.
Matthew Perry, who lured Courteney Cox to his short-lived NBC comedy Go On last season, is repaying the favor by guest-starring on Cougar Town.

No word on who Perry is playing, but his episode is expected to air towards the end of the TBS comedy’s fifth season (bowing Jan. 7).
Perry is the third Friends vet to visit Cox on C-Town, following stints by Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston.


Courteney to Direct First Feature Film

Friday, Jun 14, 2013


Courteney Cox has been spending most of her time recently in Cougar Town, but she’s about to step behind the camera to direct her first feature film, Hello I Must Be Going. It’s written by David Flebotte and will star Seann William Scott and Kate Walsh. The film is about Ted Morgan (Scott), a depressed man who heads back to his hometown to right some wrongs before committing suicide. Walsh will play his sister-in-law Kathleen.

Cox isn’t the first former Friends star to try her hand at something outside the realm of traditional acting. David Schwimmer has also done his share of big screen directing, while Lisa Kudrow created an improvised comedy series called Web Therapy, which aired online until Showtime picked it up in 2011. Matthew Perry also created his own series, the comedy Mr. Sunshine, and recently produced the show Go On (though neither lasted more than one season). Most bizarre of the lot: Matt LeBlanc produced Jonah Hex, and we all know how that turned out (not great).
Finally, there’s Jennifer Aniston, who has mainly done standard acting jobs since Friends, but that seems to be working out pretty well for her. So stick to it Jen.

While this is Cox’s feature directorial debut, she has previously directed episodes of Cougar Town, not to mention the 2012 Lifetime movie Talhotblond. Hello I Must Be Going (which shares a title with an independent dramedy released last year, and as such will probably find itself undergoing a name change) starts filming later this month, so there’s no way to tell yet how it might turn out. But we do know it’s not on Lifetime, so that’s a step in the right direction already.
