    I love it when an actor/actress does something you wouldn’t expect. I’m looking forward to what she can bring to the table.

  2. Robb says:

    I love her.

  3. Judy says:

    As much as I love Lisa Kudrow there is no way I’d watch her on this garbage. Guess this explains where Sandra Oh’s paycheck on Grey’s went.

    • Lauren says:

      Yes, because the budgets for two unrelated shows are inextricably linked.

    • JJM says:

      Sandra Oh still has another season on Grey’s Anatomy, so unless she’s paying Kudrow her money to star on a completely different show then I believe your comment is irrelevant.

    I think she is the most talented member of the “Friends” cast. I like Lisa, cannot stand the rest of them especially Courtney Cox and cry baby Aniston. I am excited to see Lisa on Scandal.
