First Lisa Kudrow played Courteney Cox’s mean dermatologist on Cougar Town, and now Jennifer Aniston is guesting on the show as Cox’s shrink.
Aniston will, indeed, appear on the ABC comedy when it comes back for its sophomore season on Sept. 22.
“She’s going to play Jules’ [C2] shrink named Bonnie,” said executive producer Bill Lawrence. “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.”
Lawrence also revealed that he fully intends on having the character come back at some point down the line. “We’re very intentionally implying that it’s a therapist [Jules] 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 [Jennifer] has a good time it’ll happen again.”
Let’s hope so. Cougar Town only got better as its freshman season progressed, so it will be nice to see Cox reconnect on screen with her real-life BFF. Maybe Dr. Bonnie’s office is in, say, the same building as Lisa Kudrow’s character and we can see the three of ’em together someday?
I’d be there for that.
