'Friends' plans super Sunday


NBC will use its hit show "Friends" to keep millions of viewers watching the network after the Super Bowl Jan. 28.

In a special two-parter, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Brooke Shields and singer Chris Isaak will guest-star on TV's No. 3-rated series. And NBC is negotiating with Julia Roberts to appear in the episodes, shot this month. If she signs on, "Friends" would re-shoot.

Ms. Shields plays a wacko fan who shows up at Joey's (Matt LeBlanc) place after he lands a role on "Days of Our Lives." Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) goes wild over Mr. Isaak, who portrays a librarian. And Monica (Courteney Cox) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) go toe-to-toe over Mr. Van Damme. If Ms. Roberts signs on, she would be placed in a plot line with Chandler (Matthew Perry).
