'Friends' reunion? Jennifer Aniston tries to make it happen on 'Ellen'
Jennifer Aniston learned something on Wednesday: Don't show up at Matthew Perry's house at 8 a.m. You might not like what happens.
All she wanted was to get some advice for her co-hosting stint on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," but Aniston's sense of timing was apparently bad. Or good, for fans of "Friends" looking for a mini-reunion. In an (obviously staged, but still funny) pre-taped segment that aired on the show, Aniston is shown knocking on her former "Friends" co-star's home at an ungodly hour. (Perry co-hosted the show in April and is set to return later this month.)
What advice does he offer? "Maybe you shouldn't show up at somebody's house at 8:00 in the morning. You should call first."
When she protests that they used to walk into each others' apartments all the time ("we're friends!") he reminds her "that was a TV show." They do a little wordplay with mistaken first names and a reference to his recently-canceled "Go On" series, and then things get weird: Dramatic music plays and Courtney Cox walks out of his front door. Along with a few other special guests.
"I really should have called first," says a shell-shocked Aniston as Perry turns to head inside, yelling, "(Matt) LeBlanc, get out of the fountain, man!" as though yet another member of "Friends" was hanging around.
Then, on Wednesday's show DeGeneres asked about the possibility of a real reunion among the "Friends" actors.
"Doing that little bit with Matty and Court yesterday was ...we were allvery nostalgic and miss working together,” said Aniston. "And love each other andit’s a great thing to go back to your family like that. And also knowthat people will love it.”
Hey, this could happen! Just probably not at 8a.m.
