Thesp steps into ‘Joey’

Anders fills slot emptied by Scott

“Joey” has a new neighbor: Andrea Anders (“The Stepford Wives”) has joined the cast of NBC’s upcoming “Friends” spinoff.

Anders fills the void created by the departure of actress Ashley Scott, who left the show last month when the show’s writers decided to rework her character (Daily Variety, June 9).

The Warner Bros. TV-produced sitcom will reshoot scenes in the “Joey” pilot to include Anders. She’ll play Alex Garrett, an uptight lawyer who lives next door to the title character (played by Matt LeBlanc).

Besides her recent appearance in “Stepford,” Anders was in the pilots “News to Me” and “Spellbound.” She also had recurring roles on “Oz,” “Guiding Light” and “One Life to Live.”

Anders stars opposite LeBlanc, Drea De Matteo and Paulo Costanzo. “Joey” is exec produced by Shana Goldberg-Meehan, Scott Silveri and Kevin Bright.
