One of the most popular sitcoms of the 1990s was NBC’s Friends. Ever since the series ended its 10 year run in 2004, there have been rumors of plans for a reunion of some kind. Some of the castmembers have said that they would be open to a reunion if it was handled well. Apparently David Schwimmer isn’t one of them.
Schwimmer was recently in London for the premier of his film Run Fat Boy Run and was interviewed by the Sun newspaper. When asked about the rumors of a Friends reunion, he said, “There is no reunion. We are not getting back together. I have not been approached, none of the producers has been approached.” The actor also admitted that, if asked, he would turn down the opportunity to play Ross Geller again. “If I was asked to do it, I’d say ‘No.’ It was ten years ago and it’s time to move on.”
Though Schwimmer has no interest in hanging out in Central Perk again, he is grateful for the sitcom. “I’m often asked whether Friends has been an albatross around my neck, or whether people only see me as ‘Ross from Friends,’ but I don’t ever think negatively about it. Really, that show has been a blessing. It’s given me the financial freedom to choose the projects I really want to do.” It seems that doesn’t include reuniting with his Friends any time soon. Stay tuned!
I personally think fair enough it is his choice I wouldn’t like it if someone told me to go back to a job I did 10 years ago either we don’t know is circumstances so it’s rude to have a go at him. Plus maybe David wants to remember it fondly and not go back and ruin it, i’m not saying a reunion would be bad but there is the worry it would ruin the perfect final episode. Also Matt hasn’t acted in 3 years he produces now so not sure he’d be up for it either. Although got to… Read more »
I think it is sad that David Schwimmer doesn’t want to do a reunion. It’s not like he has all that much going on that he could spend a couple of days endulging his fans for a hopefully great reunion. Well whatever he does I hope he will come to his senses and do the reunion.
Personally, i think hes an *******(although he was my favourite cause i thought he was the funniest). I mean, look what friends made him, and look what he goes and says ” Ive moved on” WTF!
IMO i think ‘Friends’ was and always will be THE GREATEST TV show to ever and u will never find a better show than it.
I don’t think we will see better tv show than friends.
I’m a big fan of friends and I really hope that they’d be back again
cos when I watch them and how they live it just takes me into thier life.
I’ve watched the whole series and when I finished it I dicovered that I can not
leave without watching friends and now I’m replaying it from the begining.
so I can say I’m obsesst with friends .
its 2008. we want to see new friends shows.it would be great. please do more
Ok, erm- say selfish much, he goes on about friends as if he did it as a favour to the nbc, he thinks he’s some great hollywood actor- he’s not, Jen annison, Courtney cox, Lisa Kudrow, Mat leblanc, and even mat perry have better careers outside of friends then him, he’ll be forgotten in no time- in all fairness, the show could proberbly function without him, just kill off the character and put Rachel with someone with a smaller forhead and boom youve got a boz office killer lol- get a life david, its your fans tht make the actor,… Read more »
NBC gave him 10 good years, of pay, Fans, and RACHEL GREEN!!!! AND HE CAN’T DO 1 REUNION SHOW!!!! JERK!!!!
What do you expect? He’s NOT a nice man… You can just hear that annoying voice saying just those words, “Move ON”… What a Jerk, with NO respect for what made him. Who knew Schwimmer before that show? NO ONE. Now, what he is best remembered for outside friends is being the guy who invented BREAST IMPLANTS. Way to “choose your projects” Ross!!! LOL
Ross would say NO to a reunion of FRIENDS???? Well I am very sorry to hear that David. Friends fans everywhere would absolutely love to see a reunion take place. We all were sorry to see the show end. It was hands down the best show ever! You say it gave you the financial freedom to do what you wanted? That came from where? Lets not be an actor that just can’t be bothered with your fans trivial requests! We were there for you for 10 years and you can’t do a reunion show? Very disappointing David!!!
