With Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox reuniting on FX’s Dirt, we decided to check in on what the rest of our TV pals are up to now.
1 COURTENEY COX
Her FX drama Dirt might be a stick-in-the-mud — it averages only 1.9 million viewers weekly — but Friends’ resident chef is cooking up a few film projects, which she’s also producing: the political slasher flick The Tripper (out April 20), directed by hubby David Arquette, and an untitled comedy at Paramount, in which she’ll play a socialite mother.
2 MATTHEW PERRY
The Central Perk smart-ass can be seen playing a smart-ass scribe on NBC’s struggling Aaron Sorkin dramedy Studio 60. He’ll appear as another unstable writer in the dark comedy Numb, which will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.
3 JENNIFER ANISTON
The paparazzi favorite guest-stars on Dirt’s March 27 season finale, as a rival editrix who shares a well-publicized peck with Cox. Aniston is also producing several movie projects with an eye to star, including Counter Clockwise, in which the former Rachel Green would play a Harvard psychologist.
4 DAVID SCHWIMMER
Although the actor will make his big-screen directorial debut with next year’s comedy Run, Fat Boy, Run, starring Thandie Newton, Friends’ dinosaur geek/monkey enthusiast hasn’t forsaken the animal kingdom: He’ll reprise his role as the voice of Melman the giraffe in 2008’s Madagascar 2.
5 MATT LEBLANC
He’s not exactly a struggling actor like Joey, but LeBlanc’s schedule has been remarkably light since his short-lived Friends spin-off wrapped in 2006. The only gig on the horizon is producing — but not starring in — The Watch, a supernatural flick that’s been in development for two years.
6 LISA KUDROW
She was a space cadet on Friends and a delusional actress on HBO’s The Comeback. Next, Kudrow will bring her brand of crazy to the big screen, playing a flustered mom in the indie comedy Kabluey. She’ll then return to playing — wait for it — a friend, as Hilary Swank’s best bud in the ‘08 romance P.S. I Love You.
