Courteney Cox to David Letterman: No ‘Friends’ ReunionBy: Shana Norris - April 22, 2014
Courteney Cox recently told David Letterman that a Friends reunion show is “not gonna happen.”
Cox appeared on The Late Show Monday night and Letterman asked the inevitable question: will there be a Friends reunion?
Cox said she can’t even get the six former cast members together for dinner due to conflicting schedules and the fact that they all live on opposite coasts now. If she hasn’t been able to accomplish that – and she claims to have been trying since the show went off air – how could a reunion show or movie happen?
Cox is still on the west coast, living in Malibu with her nine-year-old daughter Coco and boyfriend, Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid.
Cox has played Jules Cobb on Cougar Town since the series premiered in 2009. She’s also worked as a director on the show since 2012.
Former Friends star Jennifer Aniston has continued to be a household name in the years since the series ended in 2004, but what about the other cast members?
Matthew Perry is still involved in television. News broke in December that he would write, produce, and star in an Odd Couple reboot on CBS.
“Ever since seeing the movie The Odd Couple when I was 10 years old, it has been a dream for me to play Oscar Madison,” Perry said. “To be given the opportunity to develop a modern version of it for CBS has put a permanent smile across my face.”
Lisa Kudrow recently voiced a character in Lovesick Fool: Love in the Age of Like. The animated short co-stars Janeane Garofalo and Fred Willard. It’s written and directed by Dominic Polcino who is well-known for his work on Family Guy, King of the Hill, and The Simpsons.
Kudrow is also collaborating with Scandal’s Dan Bucatinsky and Dan Savage on the documentary series It Got Better, after having made a few guest appearances on Scandal herself in 2013.
Matt LeBlanc has starred as a fictional version of himself on the BBC/Showtime series Episodes since 2011. In 2012 he won a Golden Globe for the role.
Finally, David Schwimmer is voicing a character in The Penguins of Madagascar which is slated for a March 2015 release. Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Ben Stiller will also lend their voices to the film.
