'Doctor Who': Get To Know New Doctor Peter Capaldi

Tom Selleck Wants To Reunite With Courteney Cox

June 3rd, 2010 2:00pm EDT

Tom SelleckTom Selleck is appealing for a role in Courteney Cox's hit show Cougar Town - because he's desperate to work with his former Friends co-star again.

The Magnum, P.I. actor played Cox's on/off onscreen boyfriend, Dr. Richard Burke, in the long running comedy series and appeared in three seasons opposite the actress. Selleck admits he has always wanted to score another role opposite Cox and would happily appear in her new TV show, about older women chasing younger men.

He tells E! Online, "I'd love to work with Courteney again. That would be fun. I've watched (Cougar Town) a couple of times and Courteney is courageous and makes really bold choices. I've always loved that about her."

However, Selleck, 65, admits TV bosses would struggle to find him a role on the show, because of the 20-year age-gap between him and 45-year-old Cox. He adds, "What would I play? She wouldn't be a cougar with me."
