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!
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!
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.
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.
Yes, this was before Brucey lost all his hair. Over the course of three episodes, the action hero actor played Paul, the father of a gal Ross was dating for a time. And boy, he was just as intimidating as in any of his "Die Hard" films.
Like, a few levels down from Liam Neeson in "Taken." There's a big plot twist: Paul starts dating Rachel! Our favorite part of this is that Willis was on the show as part of a bet Matthew Perry made when they were on set for a film together.
