Jennifer Aniston on Days Of Our Lives? Apparently, it’s going to happen! Jen’s dad, John Aniston has been on the show for an astounding 24 years, playing Greek mobman Victor Kiriakis. The problem is that NBC plans to shelve the soap because ratings are really low. Everyone’s leaping to the show’s defense with viewers and the stars both petitioning. Enter, Jennifer. Producers believe that an appearance by her will help draw people in, which gives the show a chance for survival.
She’s supposedly going to play a “frazzled”Ã‚Â wedding planner who helps her fatherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s character marry Maggie Norton, played by Suzanne Rogers. A source reveals, “WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re hoping Jen will join us in November, when all the networks are at their most competitive.Ã‚Â 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.” So this is really going to happen. Well, it seems quite full circle-ish anyway. She started and got her biggest break with television so there’s no harm in going back.
Papa’s pretty happy his daughter’s chipping in, too. The source added, “John is thrilled at the prospect of working alongside his daughter for the first time. He didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t approach her, though. The showÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s executive producers did because John didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to put Jen under pressure.” Ã‚Â Another source corroborated the deal with, “She wants to do it and sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s happy to take the bare minimum Screen ActorsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Guild day rate.The idea of a semi-comedic role opposite her dad is hugely appealing to Jennifer.” Would you tune in to watch?
