A well-known music video gave Courteney Cox her big break.
He got her big break in the music video for Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” in 1984, ten years before she was cast in “Friends.” Brian De Palma was in charge of making the video.

At first, the producers of “Friends” wanted Courteney Cox to play Rachel.
If the producers of “Friends” had stuck to their original plans, Courteney Cox would have played Rachel Green instead of Jennifer Aniston. One of the people who made the show “Friends,” Marta Kauffman, wanted Cox to play Rachel. Cox told the people in charge that she wanted to play Monica. The producers were looking for someone “darker, edgier, and snarkier,” but Courteney added a lot of different colors to the role.

In the popular slasher horror movie “Scream,” which came out in 1996, he played the role of Gale Weathers. She did “Scream 2” in 1997 and “Scream 3” in 2000. Box Office Mojo says that the “Scream” series and its sequels are one of the most well-reviewed and most profitable horror film series.
