Even though sitcom fans can generally be measured by the millions, it ain't difficult to pick out the Friends loyalists. Modern sitcoms will never live up to their standards, (That gag on last night's HIMYM has already been done by Friends. Like years ago) and they are the ones who look crestfallen every time a former cast member patiently reiterates that a movie reunion is just not on the cards. So imagine the joy when the good folks started sending out feelers that they have Lisa Kudrow in their sights.
Though she might not have a list of degrees a mile long to her name, the credit for this brainwave goes entirely to Penny, the adorable Cheesecake Factory waitress. The star has been hinting heavily that she'd like to see Lisa on the show and was quoted in an interview as saying, "Every week we hear something whacked about Penny's family... She has this weird family and I've been waiting for the episode [in which they could appear]. My ideal mother would be Lisa Kudrow. I just think she should play my mother. I have this idea that she had me when she was really young."
The blonde diva, who has got Kunal Nayyar enthused over the idea as well, further continues, "I would love to meet Penny’s mother this season. I have my dream idea of who she would be in my head, but I think she’s the only parent left to see on the show. It would be really fun for that to happen this year.
"Lisa Kudrow would be perfect. I’ve been putting that idea out there to everyone. I say it in every interview in the hope that she might read it and ask to be involved. That would be awesome. I know the writers would write something great for her, so it will be a great opportunity – but I’ve no idea if it’s actually going to happen or not. I can only keep my fingers crossed."
Further justifying her decision, Kaley adds, "I think Lisa Kudrow is the perfect age to play Penny’s mother because Penny is just like a little Lisa. I almost see her as a MILF hitting on all the guys. That would be so much fun! She could arrive on the show as a cougar, but you’d get the feeling that this has happened many times before."
