You think it would have happened by now.
So what's taking so long?
"This is not a joke—we can give [Cougar Town cocreator] Bill Lawrence all the s--t we want for it," Philipps said at last night's Hooray for Hollygrove event presented by Juicy Couture at the Hollywood Museum. "At the beginning of the show, in the first season, I told him, 'My friend Michelle Williams wants to guest star on the show.' And he's like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah.' And they never did anything with it!
"And then she was nominated for her third Academy Award and they're like, 'Hey, maybe one of your friends would wanna…?'" she continued. "I said, 'I told you season one that she would do it! You lost her now to the third Academy Award nomination.'"
That doesn't mean it's a lost cause. Philipps said it "would be amazing" to work on the show with Williams.
"It would be great," she said. "I want her to play my bookish sister who hates me."
Sounds good to us.
As for Williams' recent remarks about being up for a Dawson's Creek reunion, James Van Der Beek said on yesterday's Live! With Kelly, "Michelle Williams is always like, 'Absolutely!' I think because her character is dead."
The Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 star also said he's not opposed to a reunion, but "nobody's producing it, nobody's writing it."
Now we want to hear from you. Should Michelle Williams guest on Cougar Town? Let us—and Bill Lawrence!—know in the comments below.
