Not coming to 24: Jennifer Aniston and Ben Stiller
What happens when two really big celebrities want to guest star on one of TV's hottest shows?
Both Jennifer Aniston and Ben Stiller wanted to appear on FOX's 24, but producer Joel Surnow turned them down because they are "too recognizable. They'll take you out of the reality."
The show has added a lot of new cast members this season, including Rick Schroder, Peter MacNichol, Regina King, Eric Balfour, Powers Boothe, and Michael Angarano, so maybe a big name star (or stars) would put the entire feel of the show out of whack.
What do you think about this? Do you think that having a former Friend and a popular movie star would take viewers out of the story, or do you think that viewers are smart enough to just consider them a character in the show?
