Jennifer Aniston's Role in 'Office Christmas Party' Was Originally Just a Cameo

Jennifer Aniston is starring in the new holiday comedy Office Christmas Party, but originally she was just supposed to have a cameo role!

The actress is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly with co-stars Olivia Munn, T.J. Miller, and Courtney B. Vance and they open up about her part in the film.

“I’ve known about this movie for so many years,” Jen said. “So I always was joking throughout the years, ‘There better be a part for me in there.’ And all of the sudden he was like, ‘Hey, so we’d like you to play a part,’ and I was like, ‘Really?’ It started off as a little cameo. It was supposed to be just a small little thing.”

“And then they go, ‘Wait, Jennifer Aniston is willing to be in the movie? What if we call it a cameo and just extend it and extend it?’ Day 15, she thought it was a cameo still,” Olivia said.
