Maybe Jules is maturing: Courteney Cox’s new Cougar Town scratching post is the darn-close-to-age-appropriate Scott Foley. The Unit secret agent has signed on to appear in three episodes as a businessman being shown some houses — and, presumably, one bedroom in particular — by our randy realtor heroine.

How’d the casting coup come about? Well, you’ll recall that Foley was a frequent guest star on Scrubs, which just happens to be the last hitcom overseen by Cougar Town mayor Bill Lawrence. So the dots are pretty easy to connect, no?

In any case, what do you think? Is Foley a step up from Nick Zano’s Josh? Is he a believable delaying tactic until the inevitable Jules/Grayson hook-up? Sound off below. (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)
