Courteney Cox hints this Friends cast member always 'flakes' on reunions

David Schwimmer will not be there for you—or rather, for that Friends cast reunion you’ve been dreaming of, according to Courteney Cox.

In an interview with Yahoo, Cox said the show’s six actors haven’t reunited because one cast member always misses the occasion. “We’ve not really had a Friends reunion,” she said. “We’ve gotten about 80 percent there, but there’s always one person who flakes at the end.”

When asked if it’s Schwimmer who’s always stuck in second gear, Cox deflects the question—but hints that Ross is the one who fails to show up.

“I’m not going to name names, but it may not be Schwimmer,” she says, before glancing into the camera, Office-style.

Then again, cast members have enjoyed several public mini-reunions since their NBC series ended in 2004. In 2014, Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow joined Cox on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In 2013, Aniston and Matthew Perry appeared together on The Ellen Show. And that’s not to mention cast members popping up on each other’s post-Friends projects: Kudrow and Aniston have both stopped by Cox’s Cougar Town, and Schwimmer definitely didn’t flake out when visiting Matt LeBlanc on Episodes.

Plus, Cox jokes that even if a Friends film isn’t in the works, she could always pursue making a Monica-centric film. “It’s going to be called Hanging With Monica,” she spitballs. “People will be running to the theater.”
