Courtney Cox Biography And Filmography:

Courtney Cox first hit with audiences when she was picked by Bruce Springsteen for the video of the hit single "Dancing in the Dark". She then worked for the Ford Modeling Agency and had appearances in Noxzema and Maybelline commercials and a small role on the soap opera "As the World Turns" before the video, after which she was hired for a  role in the primetime television series "Misfits of Science". 

Courtney then joined the cast of the smash hit sitcom "Family Ties" for the last two seasons (1987-89) as the girlfriend of Alex P Keaton played by Michael J. Fox. Courtney made the jump to the movie screen, appearing in the adventure film "Down Twisted" and the kid's sci-fi heroic "Masters of the Universe" (1987), and "Cocoon: The Return" (1988), none of which did well with critics or audiences.


For most of the 80's and 90's, Cox switched between television and films. She landed the female lead opposite Jim Carrey in the smash hit "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" (1994), but was overshadowed by the antics of her Carrey. Cox came to fame as chef Monica Geller, acting as the anchor of the group, in the hit sitcom "Friends" (1994-2004), originally seen as the star of the show, she easily blended into the growing ensemble cast and, after a few seasons of playing Monica fairly straight, She showed her comedy skill as the character's quirks emerged. She did well working alongside co-star and fellow friend Jennifer Aniston

Cox showed her dramatic talents as a blind rape victim in the movie "Sketch Artist II: Hands that See" (1995) before becoming the first of the "Friends" cast to score a big screen hit with Wes Craven's "Scream" (1996) about a psychopathic serial killer who is stalking a group of young teens just like in the old horror movies. Cast as the television newscaster Gale Weathers, she gave a great performance and she reprised the part in the inevitable sequels "Scream 2" (1997) and "Scream 3" (2000). Regrettably, "Commandments" (1997), in which Courtney played the miserable wife of Anthony LaPaglia, starting on a love affair with her brother-in-law, failed to capture much of an audiance. 

After a string of bad roles in "3000 Miles to Graceland" with Kevin Costner, "The Shrink Is In", about a young woman who masquerades as a shrink to win over her Prince Charming, and "Get Well Soon" (2001), Courtney focused on her television career and her marriage to her husband David Arquette, whom she married in 1999 and added the Arquette name to her professional credits. Cox-Arquette then starred in the dramatic mystery thriller "November" (2004) about a woman who is going through the most difficult time of her life. Now, she just has to find out if it's real. She then had a small uncredited role in the Adam Sandler remake of "The Longest Yard" (2005).


The following year had her lending her voice talents to the animated film "Barnyard" (2006) a funny film about when the farmer's away, and how all the animals play, and sing, and dance. Eventually, though, someone has to step in and run things, a responsibility that ends up going to Otis, a carefree cow. Courtney then starred with Tim Allen in the action thriller "Zoom" (2006) with Chevy Chase, about a former superhero who is called back to work to transform an unlikely group of ragtag young kids into superheroes at a private Academy. Courtney Cox then appeared in a horror film directed by husband David Arquette titled "The Tripper" (2006) about a Ronald Reagan obsessed serial killer who targets a bunch of hippies who are heading to a weekend-long concert. 

Cox then returned to television series work with the smash hit show "Dirt" (2007-2008) where fame and celebrity have a price and she is there to collect as a tabloid editor and her photographer try to make their way in the world of celebrity journalism. While working on the series, she appeared in the comedy film "Bedtime Stories" (2008) starring Adam Sandler, a family comedy about a hotel handyman whose life changes when the lavish bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to magically come true. Cox wrapped the year with "The Big Change" (2009) playing a Southern socialite who struggles to adjust to her daughter's embracing of hip-hop culture.

In 2011 Courtney return to the Scream franchise with “Scream 4” where Ten years have passed and Sidney Prescott, who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the Ghostface Killer once again.

Cox then decided she liked working on TV more than movies and returned for a run of appearances on “Scrubs” (2009), “Web Therapy” (2009), and her breakout role as Jules Cobb on 56 episodes of the TV series “Cougar Town” (2012) where a recently divorced woman decides to find some excitement in her dating life.
