BURBANK, Calif. -- November 30, 2004 -- Lucy Liu ("Charlie's Angels") has signed on as a guest star in at least two upcoming episodes of "Joey." Liu will play Lauren, the tough executive producer of the series "Deep Powder" in which Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) plays the father of one of the main characters. Her first episode will be a Christmas-themed episode, which is being shot this week. This is the first time Liu and LeBlanc have worked together since the two "Charlie's Angels" films.

This is Liu's first on-screen television appearance since "Ally McBeal." Her feature film credits include both "Charlie's Angels" films, both "Kill Bill" films, "Chicago" and "Shanghai Noon."

"Joey," which airs Thursdays at 8:00pm on NBC, is a Bright-San Production, a Silver and Gold Production in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Let's hope they don't try a love interest type of thing.

From her first episode, it doesn't look like she's going the way of love interest. Just one of the supporting characters at his new show.

Well when you think of comedy, Lucy Liu doesn't spring to mind.

If you look at the picture of Lucy Liu posted by Brian Damage, i doubt very seriously that the producers of Joey were thinking about women viewers. So it's obvious they are trying to attract more male viewers for that paticular episode.

Yeah, he does, most definitely. The men have already had Kelly Preston guest star, now we just need a male guest star now too :)

Actually, before "Ally McBeal" Miss Liu had a supporting role on Rhea Perlman's short lived CBS sitcom "Pearl," and from what I rmember, she was very funny.
She played a very ambitious straight laced student, kind of a college version of Lilith from "Cheers," a complete opposite of the sexy femme fatale she played on "Ally."

She's got some comedic chops.

Kelly Preston did nothing for me.
Neither does Drea DeMatteo, nor does Jennifer Coolidge.

Andrea Anders, however, is very cute.


But Lucy Lui is a knockout.

I'd be a little concerned if Jennifer Coolidge did something for you. :)

Drea de Matteo is HOT, but Joey doesn't do her justice for some reason. I don't know if it's the lighting or what, but she was absolutely gorgeous on The Sopranos.

I agree though, Andrea Anders is pretty cute.

I agree, I think it is the way she wears her hair and the clothes that she wears that makes her a little less attractive.

I prefer her hair on Joey. That done up Adriana look doesn't do much for me.

Adriana was sultry, Gina is a tad bit skanky.

You know, I never thought about it this way, but maybe they make Drea less attractive on Joey on purpose, to better fit Gina's "skank" image. I mean, that's why they didn't cover up Drea's tattoos; they help define Gina as a character.
