Jennifer Aniston is reportedly planning a high-profile return to television.
The actress made her name on the small screen appearing in hit show Friends.
But now 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,” a source told 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 43-year-old apparently joked to a pal that she’ll even “play a one-legged, crack-addicted prostitute as long as it’s a believable role.”
Jennifer won an Emmy and Golden Globe for her performance in Friends but has not picked up any major awards for her film work.
“Jen hasn’t had a great movie review since The Good Girl way back in 2002,” the source noted. “She’s hoping a dramatic TV role can win her the praise she’s been lacking from her recent films.”
