Friends forever! Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer came together to honor their Friends director James Burrows making Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows probably the only televised Friends reunion we’ll ever get…even though it didn’t feature the complete set. Matthew Perry was in play rehearsals in London, but his presence was certainly felt. E! News has an exclusive preview of the big reunion below.
“We wish he was here. Matty, we miss you,” LeBlanc says in the clip.
So, what is it about Burrows that got them all finally (mostly) together?
“We would anything for Jim Burrows because he really gave us the opportunity of a lifetime and probably the best 10 years of our acting careers that we will forever remember,” Aniston says. “And had some of the greatest creativity—We experienced friendship, family, heartbreak, babies, everything together. We also sort of had a wonderful experience with the world loving us as well, they connected with us.”
That’s an understatement.
It seems you have Burrows to thank for that chemistry you came to know and love for 10 seasons. The Friends cast is just one of many famous TV reunions happening on Sunday, Feb. 21. The casts of Taxi, Will & Grace, Cheers, The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly, Two and a Half Men and more are all coming together to pay tribute to Burrows.
Burrows recently directed his 1,000th episode of TV, an episode of NBC’s upcoming comedy Crowded starring Carrie Preston and Patrick Warburton.
