Nawww isn’t Dakota Fanning a darling! She takes the trophy for the youngest celebrity to appear on “Friends,” but she was actually pretty famous at the time. On the show, she portrays Mackenzie, the girl who lives in Monica and Chandler’s prospective new home.
Young Mackenzie doesn’t want to leave her house, and at the same time, Joey doesn’t want his bestie to leave, so the pair become friends. But at the end of the day, Joey learns a life lesson from her.
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.
We seriously can’t get enough of all these amazing 90s cameos on "Friends," and in hindsight, it makes things so, so, SO much better. Helen Hunt, who was quite famous at the time already, was snuck into the cast of the episode as Jamie.
The episode also features everyone’s not-so-favorite twin sister, Ursula. Also, can we just talk about the outfits? The black suits and white t-shirts and simple jewelry are giving us life right now!
The Greens are here, the Greens are here! Fans were thrilled after Jill, Rachel’s baby sister appeared on the show, and then they got a second look into Rachel’s life when Christina Applegate appeared on the show. Christina took on the role of Amy, Rachel’s other sister.
But in some terrible (yet hilarious) event at Thanksgiving, she basically ensures never to be back (though she ultimately does). Fans absolutely loathed Amy, but critics were all over her — for her perfectly unpleasant performance.
