Is this Cougar off the market?

Cougar Town star Courteney Cox was spotted looking cozy with Snow Patrol band member Johnny McDaid Sunday at Jennifer Aniston‘s annual holiday party in Bel Air. The duo was photographed arriving at the bash together in a Range Rover with Cox, 49, behind the wheel.

A rep for Cox could not be reached for comment, but the possible coupling makes some sense, considering the pair are part of the same unlikely circle of friends.

McDaid, 37, is reportedly in Los Angeles while working with Ed Sheeran on his new album. Sheeran, 22, has been living in Cox’s beach house, and spent Thanksgiving with her and Aniston.

Last month, Sheeran went on Twitter and encouraged followers to vote for Cox for a People’s Choice Award.

“My friend Courteney is nominated for a People’s Choice Award for favorite cable tv actress,” he wrote. “She’s never won one before and she lets me [live] in her beach house so how’s about we all vote for her and win her the damn thang eh?”

McDaid promptly retweeted the message.

Last Wednesday, McDaid also retweeted a message from One Direction’s Harry Styles that also urged fans to vote for Cox.

Cox finalized her amicable divorce from David Arquette in May and they share custody of their daughter Coco, 9. Arquette is now expecting a baby with girlfriend Christina McLarty.

McDaid, a Northern Ireland native, has never married, something he attributed to his hectic work schedule.

“I don’t have a girlfriend at the minute so I suppose you could say Johnny needs love,” he told the Derry Journal in 2009.

Is Cox filling that need? Stay tuned.
