“Friends” Star Won’t Do Reunion for a Payday, Suggests Reboot with No White Actors

(Daily Mail) Friends star David Schwimmer has harpooned hopes for a reunion of the iconic sitcom but suggested an ‘all-black or all-Asian’ reboot of the show could work.

Speculation had hit fever pitch Friends was headed for a comeback to celebrate its 25th anniversary – after David, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrox, Matt Le Blanc and Matthew Perry – reunited on Instagram in October.

But David, 53, who played paleontologist Ross Geller on the show, shut down rumours of further episodes but said he would be open to an one-off, chat-show reunion in an interview with The Guardian.

He said: ‘I just don’t think it’s possible, given everyone’s different career trajectories.

‘I think everyone feels the same: why mess with what felt like the right way to end the series? I don’t want to do anything for the money.
