We love the solar system outfit that Penn’s character, Eric, sports in one of the episodes which aired back in 2001. The only reason the Hollywood A-lister agreed to appear on the show was that his kids both loved it.
What a great dad! Penn’s character is dating Phoebe’s “evil” twin sister Ursula. Fans share Phoebe’s horror when the seemingly sweet Eric drops that bomb — but then Phoebs finds out her sis has been lying to him. That’s when the love triangle ensues!
Talk about double exposure. Jason Alexander had finished "Seinfeld" at the time but thought he’d stop by the "Friends" set and its live audience to relive the NYC sitcom scene. He appears in the episode "The One Where Rosita Dies" as the character Earl.
Phoebe and Earl end up having a very difficult but important conversation during the episode. All things were resolved and it's certainly a memorable storyline.
Whether you know him as Ant-Man or as Josh in "Clueless," Paul Rudd is no doubt a household name these days. He not only made it into "Friends," but was hired as a regular cast member. Rudd plays Mike Hannigan, who (spoiler alert) plays Phoebe's husband later on in the series.
He was a highly loved character on the show, and there were a few choice moments — we love going back to when it all started when she was set up on a blind date with Mike by Joey.
Now it’s time to fess up folks: which of you had a crush on Jennifer Aniston when she played Rachel on "Friends?" Ok, you still do? Fair enough — and you’re not alone. According to an interview given by Cole Sprouse, the then eight-year-old admitted to forgetting his lines whenever he was in Jen’s presence.
NAW! Appearing on the show as Ross Geller’s little boy Ben, he said it made it hard for him to work on the show, saying he would “stammer a lot and…forget..lines.”

We’d make a pun (that seems so appropriate) using JC’s surname, but we won’t. Now you’re thinking about it…and you’ve got it. Okay, anyway, did you know that he had a cameo on "Friends?" Yeah, blink and you’ll miss it — well, you won’t miss his biceps, but yes, it’s fleeting.
He stops by in the episode that Julia Roberts is in too, causing a little bit of a catfight between Rachel and Monica when he asks Rachel out while she was trying to wing-woman Monica!
