Jennifer Aniston may be coming back to TV as a — wait for it — talk show host.

Aniston has agreed to do a weekly show for Oprah's new cable channel, OWN, when it finally launches sometime next year, according to a report over the weekend.

While the idea of the former "Friends" star putting her career on hold to host a weekly cable show seems improbable at first glance, the report in London's Express newspaper says that Aniston is taken with the idea of starring on her own talk show.

Salary would not be a factor for the actress, who earns $5-7 million a movie, says the report.

"She is doing this for one reason only; she absolutely wants to do it," the paper quotes a source "close to the deal."
