Drew Barrymore reprised her Never Been Kissed role of Josie Geller on the latest episode of her new talk-show.

The 45-year-old starred in the 1999 movie as a journalist who disguises herself as a teenage geek to report on the goings-on at a high school.

For her latest avatar on her talk show Drew played Josie as she appeared undercover – the dorky schoolgirl ‘Josie Grossie’ who dreams of being a reporter.

Drew invited ‘Josie’ onto the show and gave her a chance to report on the ongoing presidential election circus for her Drew’s News segment.

Josie like Drew herself would have been in high school in the late 1980s so the assignment led to a bit of confusion.

She did report on the presidential election but she was talking about the one between George Bush Sr. and Michael Dukakis in 1988.

‘Oh, Josie, you’ve missed so much. A lot has happened since 1988,’ says Drew sympathetically, prompting Josie to cheerfully say that ‘my money is on Michael Dukakis. Never underestimate an underdog! Have you seen Karate KId?’

Josie goes onto be completely unaware who Harry Styles is and to marvel that ‘Your TV crew is all doctors – I mean, right? Everyone’s wearing a mask!’

In the film Josie’s brother was called Rob Geller in a striking similarity to the character Ross Geller on Friends which was a huge TV hit at the time.

Rob was played by David Arquette who the year of the film’s release married Courteney Cox – who of course was playing Ross’ sister Monica on Friends.

David and Courteney also starred with Drew in the original Scream movie where she played the platinum blonde Casey Becker who falls prey to serial killer Ghostface.

Drew reprised the role of Casey Becker in a recent sketch on her talk-show to celebrate the run-up to Halloween.

Her Scream skit came shortly after production finally began on the fifth film in the franchise, with several old faces coming back.

Neve Campbell will be returning to the series as will Courteney and David who became a couple by way of the movies.

Slated for release in early 2022, the film was meant to start filming in March but began last month instead to accommodate the coronavirus lockdowns.

So sweet: Josie goes onto be completely unaware who Harry Styles is and to marvel that 'Your TV crew is all doctors - I mean, right? Everyone's wearing a mask!'
