Jamie explained that with her 64th birthday coming up in November, she’d be happy to take part in a sequel where she and Lindsay swap places again, but this time their characters aren’t just a mom and daughter. She explained that she’d hoped that her character was a grandma and Lindsay’s was a mom if the movie gets made. “Creatively, I’m wide open. Lindsay Lohan and me back in a Freaky Friday. She just made a Christmas movie I believe, and she got married. It’s all good. Bring it. Let me be the old grandma who has to take care,” she said, before co-host Ana Navaro interjected that the Trading Places star would be a “sexy grandma.”

Since the premise of the movie focuses on her and Lindsay’s characters switching bodies, she said that she’d like to see how they’d both perform the new roles. “Lindsay gets to be the sexy grandma, who’s still happy with Mark Harmon in all the ways you would be happy with Mark Harmon,” she quipped. “Simply, I would like to see Lindsay be the hot grandma, and I would like to see me try to deal with toddlers. I want to be a helicopter parent in today’s world, as an old lady.”

Aside from being hopeful for a Freaky Friday reboot, Jamie also spoke about her role in the upcoming Halloween Ends film, the latest sequel from the rebooted 1978 horror classic. The new movie will be available in theaters on  As Jamie mentioned, Lindsay is also gearing up for the brand new holiday flick Falling For Christmas, which is expected to hit Netflix early in November.
