Friends star James Michael Tyler, who played the Central Perk barista Gunther, is speaking out over ten years later about his opinion on the Ross and Rachel relationship.
When asked by TV Line if he thinks Gunther felt bad after telling Rachel that Ross cheated on her with the girl from the copy place, he said, “Absolutely not. He cheated on her, are you kidding me? Ross doesn’t deserve Rachel.”
“Yes, Gunther’s pretty sad about it,” James said about Ross and Rachel ending up together. “He wasn’t the happiest of characters. I think it’s because he had a very long commute, a lot of stops from New Jersey.”
Here is what Gunther would be up to today, according to James: “Hopefully he’s happy. And hopefully he’s matured, having gained some experience in life and love. I also hope he isn’t as socially inept as he was. And maybe he owns Central Perk and/or a franchise of Central Perks. … That would be a nice future for Gunther.”
