Remember Friends? Every inhabitant of Earth gathered in Times Square to watch the last episode and openly wept when one of them did that thing that meant a lot to their character or whatever it was. Then Joey probably did a bad impression of the Fonz and they all laughed their shoulders up and down like the closing moments of a M.A.S.K. cartoon.
Then, all the careers of the Friends crew almost evaporated overnight. Anyone seen Matthew Perry recently? That woman who played Phoebe? Anyone? Is she selling contraband rolling tobacco out of the back of a Nissan Micra?
Now we’ve got Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox. They’ve fared a little better over the years but haven’t ever hit the heights of when they were regularly on TV. Aniston is the only one who stayed in the public eye, mainly thanks to being referred to as That Woman Who Keeps Stabbing Photos Of Angelina Jolie.
In a bid to remind themselves of the glory years, Aniston and Friends co-star Courtney Cox Arquette plan to work together Cox Arquette’s show Cougar Town.
Aniston will play a therapist named Bonnie who Courtney’s character will visit for treatment.
Explaining the character, Cougar Town executive producer Bill Lawrence said:
“She’s kind of a get-too-involved-in-her-life-type of therapist. Those guys are so close in real life they kind of do that for each other anyway. Bonnie has the life Jules wishes she has.”
There have also been rumours that Aniston would also show her face in a Scream sequel with Courtney Cox Her Name Is Too Long To Continually Type Out. The film is called Dimension and the rumour is, apparently, a crock.
“We’re very intentionally implying that it’s a therapist Courteney’s character has been using for a while, and we’re certainly not going to make it like they’ll never see each other again. So I’m crossing my fingers that if she has a good time it’ll happen again.”
So anyone hoping that Aniston and Cox’s short-lived lez-off in ‘Dirt’ would be furthered in the name of a nostalgia wank… sorry, this is a shirts-on reunion.
