WMFATA: Courteney Cox Arquette...

Courteney Cox Arquette got her big break as the girl who was pulled up on stage in the "Dancing in the Dark" music video, and though she had roles in pop culture hits like Seinfeld and Ace Ventura, she didn't become a household name until she was part of a three man/three woman ensemble in the Greenwich Village on Friends. For ten years she made countless girls (and a couple of guys!) laugh, cry, and grow up with her. She went from freckle-faced ingenue to high-powered hybrid producer/actor who could have her pick of any script. She also finally became a mom.
Why My Friends Are Talking About Her: Sure, Cox Arquette has an ABC comedy on the fall line-up; Cougar Town was discussed on a previous blog, and let's just say that underwhelming pilot could have people talking about her-- but for different (and not altogether positive) reasons. No, Cox Arquette is back in the spotlight amongst my friends and colleagues for the details circulating about the next installment of the Scream franchise. According to reports from horror king Wes Craven, since the first batch were done as a trilogy (and therefore, as Randy reminds us, "certain rules do not apply"), so will the next batch: in other words, there won't just be a Scream 3 but also a Scream 4 and 5! And getting Cox Arquette to sign on is the first and perhaps foremost to stamp these as authentic.
