Friends' Cast: Where Are They Now?
The TV show "Friends" is still popular worldwide, and here you'll learn all about the Friends' Cast: Where Are They Now? "Friends" was on the air for ten years, receiving more than 60 Emmy Award nominations and several wins as well. It hasn't seemed to have lost any popularity with fans, as the series is still in syndication worldwide. Now that's a true fan base!
Matt LeBlanc "Joey". LeBlanc tried his hand at a "Friends" spin-off called "Joey", but after just one season, it was cancelled. He hasn't done much since with the exception of calling his brief marriage quits with ex-wife Melissa McKnight. In 2010, Matt landed himself a role in the new Showtime comedy series called "Episodes", where he plays a version of himself. He's also an executive producer of the 2010 movie "Jonah Hex", which stars Josh Brolin and Megan Fox.
Jennifer Aniston "Rachel". America's sweetheart has had a few big screen hits since "Friends" ended, but her personal life hasn't been so fortunate. She's had her share of romance, but nothing long term or in the direction she's always wanted—motherhood. But like most working women, when your personal life isn't perfect, you throw yourself into your work and she's shown what a well-rounded actress she is from the success of "Marley and Me", "The Break-Up" and even those that didn't do as well like "He's Just Not That Into You". Aniston usually has several movies in pre-production or production each year.
Matthew Perry "Chandler". Oh how the fans loved Chandler Bing's character—their "bing-a-ling" as Janice called him. He's been somewhat out of the limelight since the end of the "Friends" series. He had a short stint on the NBC series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip", and then tried his hand with another series called "The End of Steve", but it too was scrapped. His last movie made was "17 Again" with Zac Efron and honestly, this was one of his better roles since "Friends". What people are anticipating most though is the new comedy series Perry created called "Mr. Sunshine" which is slated for Fall 2010. Perry will write, produce, and grace us with his witty comedic acting ability once again.
Courteney Cox-Arquette "Monica". Cox became a mom to a beautiful little girl shortly after the show ended. She focused on her family for a couple of years and then decided to make a comeback with the FX series "Dirt" which in itself was pretty gritty, but good nonetheless. Her husband David Arquette helped produce the show, but after the second season aired, it was canceled due to poor ratings. She then guest-starred for a few episodes on NBC's "Scrubs" which led her to her most recent success in ABC's "Cougar Town". Cox will also be reprising her role as Gale Weathers Riley in Wes Craven's "Scream 4".
David Schwimmer "Ross". David Schwimmer has spent more of the last six years behind the cameras than in front of them. He's tried his hand at directing and did fairly well with 2007's "Run, Fatboy Run" starring Simon Pegg and Hank Azaria. David has also spent time working with his own theater group called the Lookingglass based in Chicago. In 2008, he directed a couple of episodes of "Joey", as well as a sketch comedy series called "Little Britain".
Lisa Kudrow "Phoebe". Our quirky Kudrow has had some success since "Friends", but most of her projects have either been in film or premium channel TV. She started off with an HBO series called "The Comeback" where she played a has-been sitcom star trying to break back into show business. She also had roles in films with mediocre success like "Hotels for Dogs" and "P.S. I Love You". In 2010, she also helped produce a celebrity reality series called "Who Do You Think You Are?" where celebs research their heritage with the help of Ancestry.com.
