On February 21st, viewers across America who have NBC on their boxes will see the closest thing to a 'Friends' reunion we're ever going to get - despite Matthew Perry not being able to make it.
As previously reported, the cast of Friends - along with other long running TV staples, such as Taxi, Mike and Molly, Will and Grace, Fraiser, Cheers, and The Big Bang Theory - all gathered to pay tribute to legendary director James Burrows.
Needless to say, the Friends segment is what most people want to see, with host Andy Cohen asking such questions as: "Did you all sign contracts saying that you wouldn't sleep with each other?" Surprisingly, it would seem David Scwhimmer is the dedicated spokesperson of the group - or rather he's the scapegoat Lisa Kudrow leaps on when the rest of the cast pause to consider an appropriate answer... Poor Ross.
As for why Matthew Perry couldn't make it, he's doing a play by the name of The End of Longing in London. Speaking on the Graham Norton show, he said of the upcoming NBC show: "It's not the reunion everyone is hoping for. They are celebrating Jim Burrows, who was a director of Friends... The other five are going to be on this special and I am going to introduce them from London. I'm doing the play here so I can't be there."
