If anyone ever tells me that their favorite member of the Friends crew is Ross, I mentally note them as clinically insane and try to avoid them in the future, and now I have even more reason to continue this practice in ernest.
In a recent interview with Yahoo, Courtney Cox was given her 18,000th grilling about if a Friends reunion would ever happen, and she let slip that a certain former cast member always fowls things up at the last minute. Cox told interviewers:
"Dear lord, let it go, people. We’re not doing it. It’s just not going to happen….We’ve gotten about 80% there, but there’s always one person who flakes at the end.”
The shrewd interviewer then asked if the flakey cast member in question might possibly be her on-screen bro, David Schwimmer, and Cox answered:
"You know, I’m not going to name names, but it may not be Schwimmer."
While Cox isn't exactly explicitly pointing the finger at Schwimmer, it is totally his fault. It's always Ross' fault, as the video below proves:
Yes, yes, I know Schwimmer isn't Ross Gellar, but after 10 years in the role and the fact that he continues to dress like his character over a decade after the iconic show finished filming, I think it's understandable that I'm not able to distinguish the two. I mean, just check out the boot cut jeans and Ross-hair Schwimmer was rocking last week in the image below:
For all I jest about Ross and Schwimmer, he is probably the patron Saint of Friends...if you ever stop to think about what the reunion would actually look like, the thought of six forty-something New Yorkers moaning about rising rents and school fees doesn't sound too appealing.
Who's your favorite member of the Friends crew?
