I have to confess, right up front, that I haven’t given Cougar Town much of a chance.
Don’t get me wrong; I love Courtney Cox. And thanks to spending all those years with her as Monica Gellar, I feel like we’re, well, friends. But the episode of Cougar Town I watched was a little creepy.
But something must be going right with the show because it has already been renewed for a second season. And Friday, Ausiello reported that none other than Sheryl Crow is headed to Cougar Town for a multi-episode arc.
Crow will play a wine distributor who meets Grayson (Josh Hopkins) at his bar and the two begin dating. Grayson and Cox’s character Jules reportedly have one of those I-hate-you-but-want-to-have-sex-with-you sitcom relationships, so she is not pleased. That’s about all we know about the storyline for now.
This isn’t Crow’s first acting gig, but she’s stuck to playing herself since her star turn in The Minus Man was not a big success. She and Cox are friends IRL, though, so the chemistry between the actors should be fun, in any case.
Any Cougar Town fans out there? What do you think of Crow playing Grayson’s GF? Should the rest of us be watching?
