News came today that Courteney Cox is adding to the cast of Cougar Town with her ex-husband (and life partner?) David Arquette. He is going to be guest starring in the season 3 finale. The duo, though separated, are famous for the fact that they have remained friends despite the relationship not working out. Read on for more details about the character, and how art is mirroring life..
Courtney and David have acted together on a few occasions… they did the Scream series, and David appeared on Friends back in 96′. They are both executive producers on the show too.
I have often felt that Courtney’s character, Jules, a recently divorced woman dealing with the aftermath of an ended relationship and thinking about a new one, is a reminder of Court’s own life in some ways. I imagine she can pull experiences and feelings from her own life to impart into Jules. Now, with David set to appear on the series, it makes the blurring between real life and TV even more obscure for me. He is going to be playing the role of a hotel concierge who wants to assist Jules with anything… hmm…
Cougar Town will be back on our screens Valentines Day – February 14th. Is this an omen for Courtney and David?
Do you think you can really remain amicable, friendly, and work together after the relationship ends?
