“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.
