Jennifer Aniston is lathering up for a special soap scene to honor her dad’s amazing Days of Our Lives career!
Jen, 50, has told friends she wants to join him on his daytime drama series for a big send-off scene before he retires, insiders crowed.
John Aniston has portrayed crafty billionaire Victor Kiriakis on the NBC soap since 1985. Now that he turns 86 on July 24, he’s ready to say goodbye to his signature role.
“John has loved his time on ‘Days,’ but he says it’s harder to bring himself onto the set,” a source spilled. “He’s ready to walk away — probably early next year.” Father and daughter may have been inspired to put the plan into place after performing a soap opera parody together last fall on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“It got her thinking, it would be wonderful to be a part of his soap opera world before he rides off into the sunset,” the insider snitched.
“She wants to pay him back for getting her going in show business!” While Jen’s rep said the blonde isn’t doing the show, insiders dished writers are mulling over story lines for John that will work his daughter onto the soap’s plot!
“Jen is beyond busy as an actress, but she’s going to make time for this,” the friend said.
“She wants to honor him by working with him while she still has the chance.”
