The one where they predict their futures.
Ahead of the big Friends reunion tomorrow, the cast talked with ET’s Nischelle Turner on where they believe their characters would be in 2021.
I’ve thought about it,” said Lisa Kudrow about her character, Phoebe Buffay. “I don’t think it makes for great storytelling but because I think they’re all just really happy, and then they get together once in a while. I don’t think they live super close together.”
Kudrow sits next to former costars Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston. Their old male castmates Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry are holding a separate interview on the same stage.
LeBlanc joked that, “Joey Trivviani in 2021 would probably…he’d be brain dead.”
“Oh, he’d have 10 kids,” Schwimmer who played Ross Geller added.
Perry who played Chandler Bring agreed with LeBlanc. “Brain dead and in the unemployment line.” LeBlanc then revealing that Joey would “still be trying” to be an actor.
The video then pans to Aniston quickly guessing that Monica Gellar would be a chef but Cox who played the character had other suggestions. “I was thinking, like, a competitive mom who would organize a bake sale or something,” she said. “Her kids are probably too old but she’d still want to make sure the bake sale goes well.”
Perry believes Chandler would “be involved in the computer world somehow but we don’t know why.”
LeBlanc joined in, “He’d be coaching his kid’s soccer game and Ross would be running the museum, playing with bones.”
The men instantly broke out in laughter.
“Playing with bones!” Schwimmer and Perry agreed. “He’d just be playing with bones.”
LeBlanc, Schwimmer and Perry all agreed that in 2021 the ladies would be “making a lotta noise,” said Perry.
Friends: The reunion special streams tomorrow (Thursday, May 27) on HBO Max. It has been over 15 years since the show rapped its final season in 2004.
“I think everyone is even more excited to have this experience having been locked in a home for so long, and going through this past year, which was extremely heartbreaking and hard just to endure, ” Aniston said on the special that was pushed back a year due to the Coronavirus. “I think it’s going to be an even more welcomed time for people to see it.”
