Courteney Cox says she would do anything to work with her Friends costars again
As reboots of classic TV shows continue to be made, many fans have been wondering when Friends’ turn will come—and Courteney Cox is among those who would like to see it happen. The actress, 54, told PEOPLE that she’s wanted to portray her character Monica Geller on the small screen again, but the possibilities may be slim to none.
The luncheon marked the start of the Tribeca Film Institute’s fourth annual three-day workshop, which is presented by Tribeca and CHANEL, in collaboration with Pulse Films. Five rising filmmakers are chosen and offered master classes, one-on-one mentorship, peer-to-peer sessions and $100,00 for project development and production.
Cox, along with Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, starred on NBC’s Friends for 10 seasons from 1994-2004. In August, Aniston opened up in InStyle‘s September issue about the possibility of the Central Perk gang reuniting.
However, one original cast member has already expressed disdain over the idea of a Friends reboot. “I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to be asked that question anymore. But maybe we could talk him into it,” Aniston said.
Months before, in January, Schwimmer claimed the cast is too old to return to the show. “Look, the thing is, I just don’t know if I want to see all of us with crutches [and] walkers,” quipped Schwimmer, who played Monica’s brother Ross Geller. I doubt it—I really doubt it,” he added. “But thank you for asking, and moving on!”
In 2016, five of the six Friends cast members reunited for NBC’s Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows special, which honored the legendary director. Missing from the event was Perry.
