Could we be anymore disappointed by this news?
After all the excitement over that Friends reunion, it turns out that one of the six cast members won’t be returning for the two-hour special – at least, not in person, anyway.
As reported by the BBC, Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing on the smash-hit sitcom, won’t be able to attend the reunion show because he’ll be in rehearsals for his West End play The End of Longing.
According to his spokeswoman, “Matthew may tape something” for the tribute to the show’s creator James Burrows.
As Lisa Kasteler put it to Us Weekly: “In other words, this is not the reunion people have been hoping for”.
Perry’s former co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc are all expected to take part in the special, which will air on NBC on February 21.
Quite frankly, if this means we don’t get to see another hug between Joey and Chandler on this special, then we’ll be devastated!
