Jennifer Aniston, who wants to make a comeback as a TV star, has joked that she is willing to "play a one-legged, crack-addicted prostitute as long as it's a believable role.
"The former 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' actress, who made her name on the small screen after acting in hit show 'Friends', is reportedly planning a high-profile return to television. And her former co-star and best pal Courteney Cox is apparently advising her to land a top-notch TV project so she can reinvent herself as a mature leading lady.
"Jennifer's looking for an edgy, character-driven show along the lines of Edie Falco's Nurse Jackie, Mary-Louise Parker in Weeds or Glenn Close in Damages," the News.com.au quoted a source as telling The Enquirer. "After a heart-to-heart with Courteney, she made up her mind to reinvent herself as a serious actress back on TV where she got her start," the source said.
The 43-year-old, who has not picked up any major awards for her film work, is hoping that a radical TV role can bring her laurels. "Jen hasn't had a great movie review since 'The Good Girl' way back in 2002. She's hoping a dramatic TV role can win her the praise she's been lacking from her recent films," the source added.
