"Friends" Casting for Mother of Monica and Chandler’s Baby

According to FilmJerk.com sources, the married couple of “Friends,” Monica (Courtney Cox Arquette) and Chandler (Matthew Perry), is extremely likely to have a baby this season— through a surrogate mother.

This is borne out by a casting document we were provided by the source, which is looking for the character. The birth mother is to be between the ages of 17 and 22, and the role will appear in at least two unspecified episodes filmed from October 13 to 17 and January 12 through 16, with possibly a couple of episodes in between. The producers are looking for the guest star to be great with comedy. The casting description is used by talent agents to find the right actress for the part, and casting directors are sure to be able to find a big name for the guest slot.

In last season’s episode 21, Monica and Chandler went in for a fertility test. They find out later that they both have fertility problems.

For fans, this plotline is going to be sure to remind them of a past plotline, in which Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) agrees to be the surrogate mother of her half-brother and his wife’s babies.

This is the last season for NBC’s leading sitcom and the season premiere is set for September 25.
