This Hollywood hunk was definitely a heartthrob in the 90s, so it makes sense that he was on “Friends,” but um, there’s also the fact that he was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time. Makes sense.
Anywho, he plays an ex-classmate named Will Colbert from Rachel’s high school. It turns out that Will started a nasty rumor about her in high school. Let’s just say the rumor is awful, and if there are laugh tracks around it, they should be reconsidered. Not cool Will, not cool!
Reese is undeniably one of America’s sweethearts. She made not one, but two guest appearances on "Friends."
She appeared as character Jill Greene, Rachel’s younger sister. The pair, in the show, had a rocky relationship, and fans booed from their couches when Jill tried to get back at her older sis by going on dates with Ross, who is, of course, Rachel’s ex (and lobster according to Phoebe). You can see her pop up on the show in season six.
Well, when you’ve got a Hollywood hard hitter on the cards, you don’t ever cast them as a new character. Naturally, you cast them as their good selves.
The legend himself, who appeared in nigh 100 films over a 60-year-career, is thrown into a hilarious episode where a partly-showered, disheveled Joey (owing to a three-day fishing trip with his old man) sneaks into Heston’s trailer for a shower. The results, you ask? Some classic Joey ridiculousness.
Ms. Winona Ryder was having a hot decade in the 90s, so it makes sense that she guest-starred on "Friends." She took on the role of Melissa, who’s friends with Rachel. The pair have a secret, well, not so much a secret anymore — they shared a kiss while drunk in college.
Melissa doesn’t seem to remember it, so Rachel feels she needs to prove that it happened by...doing it again. But plot twist: Melissa remembered everything, and confesses her love for Rachel!
While Kirstin Davis's most notable character is the lovable Charlotte on "Sex and the City" she also made an appearance on "Friends." Davis plays Erin, the one-night stand of the show’s lothario, Joey.
In the episode, which aired in 2000, Phoebe and Rachel befriend her, but, as the relationship doesn’t work out, the girls lose a prospective new friend. Sad face. In an interview, later on, Davis confessed her stage fright before joining the show.
