The cast of Office Space knows they owe a great debt to Jennifer Aniston.

In a PeopleTV special, the cult classic’s stars (minus Aniston) and writer/director Mike Judge look back on their 1999 film, including why landing the Friends star was so crucial.

“Casting Aniston helped me cast all of them,” Judge says, leading Ron Livingston, Gary Cole, and Stephen Root to jump in and thank her. Judge continued, “I would say thank you, too, because I thought she was great in it and perfect for it, but also that it helped us put the studio at ease a little bit, at least they had one famous person.”
