Courteney Cox gets back to work on the Warner Bros. lot, serves coffee at Central Perk (really)
As Friends fans know, Jennifer Aniston's character Rachel was the one who spent a stint serving up piping hot Joe at Central Perk, but with Courteney Cox once again filming on the Warner Bros. lot, the studio home of her former show, she's now picking up some coffee-related shifts of her own.
Cox has been filming her Starz horror/comedy Shining Vale on the same lot where Friends was filmed from 1994-2004, and she decided to use some time — and her vast knowledge of the locale — to obtain some extra work.
The actress posted an Instagram video from the WB of her delivering coffee to tourists sitting on the big orange Central Perk couch (a Monica, and a Rachel, if you're wondering what beverages they ordered), she takes a shift in the gift shop, and helps hand out drive-on passes from the parking kiosk.
Clearly fans loved every moment. One patron got the keychain they were buying for free from the actress/cashier, while another got a photo with the Friends star as she bagged his newly-purchased swag.
Last month, Cox used her downtime from Shining Vale to drive a golf cart of tourists on the lot, even taking them past the stage where she, Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, and Lisa Kudrow filmed Friends for a decade.
When EW asked during last month's Television Critics Association Summer Tour panel for Shining Vale if she'd taken her latest castmates on a tour of the lot (who include Greg Kinnear and Mira Sorvino), Cox said she hadn't but had enjoyed making fun clips at her old, and new again, haunt.
"I've loved having these little posts to do here because it's all about the 'Gram, isn't it?" she said.
