Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon Commit to the Bit, Anchor Good Morning America

Want an Apple TV+ promo with your morning coffee? Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who play news anchors in Apple TV+’s upcoming series The Morning Show, played anchor on Good Morning America today. (Witherspoon’s brunette wig missed this appearance.) They gave the morning’s headlines (Prince’s new autobiography, and the right-hand woman to the queen speaks out) before getting too excited about their little lark and inviting out the real anchors, Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos. Compliments fly! “We can retire now, right?” Stephanopoulos jokes. “We’ll take the rest of the morning off, you take it away!” The Morning Show co-stars, including Billy Crudup but not including Steve Carell, joined them in the audience. The Morning Show, along with a world of other content, hits Apple TV+ on November 1.

Correction: This post originally referred to Robin Roberts as Robin Wright.
