Jennifer Aniston may soon be appearing on the daily soap Days of Our Lives, taking a page from fellow actor James Franco.
According to the Express she’ll appear on the soap for several episodes in the hopes of boosting the shows ratings which have fallen sharply over the last several years.
It should be noted that Aniston’s dad has been a show regular for the last 24 years, which means she’ll be attempting to help dad save his job.
According to reports, Aniston will be playing a “frazzled” wedding planner who will be helping her real life dad’s character get married.
According to one source:
“We’re hoping Jen will join us in November, when all the networks are at their most competitive,” while adding, “She has said she wants to help but her schedule is so tight we may have to cram a lot of shooting into just a few days.”
A close friend of the actress tells Express.co.uk:
“The idea of a semi-comedic role opposite her dad is hugely appealing to Jennifer,” they also say she would be “happy to take the bare minimum Screen Actors’ Guild day rate.”
If she takes the bare minimum Aniston would earn approximately $645 per day, far below her days on Friends where she commanded $1 million per episode.
Would you be willing to tune into Days of Our Lives if Jennifer Aniston and James Franco were making regular appearance on the show? The stunt could be a huge success or a last gasp of air for the NBC series.
