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.
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!
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.
There’s something so right about Jeff Goldblum’s role on "Friends": he appears on the show as a legendary director, making this a big Joey episode. Unbeknownst to Goldblum’s character, Joey has had a little too much water to drink and really needs to pee, which adds a certain panache to his performance.
This piques the interest of Hayes (Goldblum), who immediately gives him a callback. But does Joey get the role? We've just given you an excuse to rewatch an episode or two.
