Freddie Prinze Jr. Says His 'Friends' Role Almost Went to This Oscar Winner!

Freddie Prinze Jr. is dishing on his guest starring role on Friends!

Back in season nine of the hit sitcom in the episode “The One with the Male Nanny,” the 43-year-old actor played Sandy, the male nanny for Ross and Rachel’s newborn daughter Emma.

In the episode, Ross didn’t approve of the “manny” because of how sensitive Sandy was, so Freddie‘s role only lasted one episode.

Now years later, Freddie is revealing that he almost didn’t get the role – and that it was originally offered to Tom Hanks!

“I wasn’t even supposed to be [Sandy], that was originally offered to Tom Hanks but he wasn’t gonna make it back from his film on time,” Freddie shared with Entertainment Weekly. “And so my agent called me and said, ‘Do you want to be on Friends? And I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll do an episode of Friends. That’ll be great.’ He said, ‘Yeah, it shoots tomorrow.’ and I was like, ‘What?’ He said, ‘Yes, tomorrow so I’ll send you the script.’”

After getting the role, Freddie said that star David Schwimmer was able to help calm his nerves on the day of filming.

“So I went in and I was totally nervous because it was on the day of shooting. I didn’t even get to do a read-through,” Freddie shared. “And David Schwimmer walked into my dressing room and he was so cool and so passionate and he had so much energy. He came into the room and was like, ‘You’re going to love this, man. It’s like a little two-act play and the crowd is so engaged, and so into it. You’ll have a ton of fun, don’t worry about a thing.’”

The 'Friends' Cast Might Reunite for a Special on HBO Max!

It’s been 15 years since the NBC comedy series Friends went off the air and the show has only gotten more popular since then… and now the cast might be finally reuniting for a reunion special!

Warner Bros. TV, the studio that produced the series, is bringing the show home next year for WarnerMedia’s new streaming service HBO Max. Fans who watch the series on Netflix only have until the end of the year to finish their binges.

When the new streaming service launches next year, they’re trying to give fans a proper Friends reunion special. A few years ago, five of the six lead cast members reunited to honor the director of the show, but that wasn’t considered a proper reunion.

THR reports that HBO Max is in the works on a reunion special, but deals are “far from done and agreements with cast and creatives still need to be hammered out.” The outlet even notes that if deals are finalized, there’s still the chance that scheduling doesn’t work out in the end.

We definitely would love to see Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer back on screen together!

During her acceptance speech, Jennifer thanked her “iconic” show Friends for getting her to where she is today.

“If I have any claim to this word ‘icon,’ it’s only because I was able to be on an iconic show, with an iconic cast, and an iconic haircut,” Jennifer shared in her emotional speech. “Friends was truly — it was the gift of a lifetime, and I would not be standing up here without that amazing show, without those amazing five other actors, and with an audience who stuck with us … You believed in us, you really did, and you believed in those very impossibly large apartments.”

Jennifer concluded her speech by thanking her fans for all the support over the years.

“You paved the way for everything that I’ve had a chance to do since and it feels so good, also, that I get to be back on television, where it all started,” Jennifer said. “Thank you for being on this journey with me, and just, I love you guys.”
