Can this really be true? WENN entertainment news wire is reporting that Jennifer Aniston has been snubbed in her bid to land a guest spot on her supposedly favorite TV drama 24. “The former Friends star reportedly put her name forward for a part in the show but producers turned her down flat – because she’s ‘too recognisable’. Executive producer Joel Surnow says, ‘You can’t put those people on (the show) because they’re too recognizable. They’ll take you (viewers) out of the reality.’ Aniston wasn’t the only big name to be turned down for a role in 24 by producers – Ben Stiller was also deemed too famous for the show.” All I can say is, HUH? Didn’t anyone ever tell these producers there’s such a thing as TV sweeps’ stunt casting? I’m trying to confirm, but everyone’s at Christmas parties…
