Top 10 Unexpected Celebrity Cameos in FRIENDS


Trying to figure out which old show to rewatch while Arrow, Flash and the whole shebang are on break till Fall? I’ve got just the right suggestion for you – how about you jog your FRIENDS memory once again? This time, however, try to spot all the cameos from celebs that were not mentioned it this list.
It’s gonna be fun!

Charlie Sheen
Season 2, “The One with the Chicken Pox”
Turns out he was winning even before he was actually “winning” (that’s a codeword for taking drugs *wink-wink*)! In the show Charlie played Phoebe’s “submarine guy,” Phoebe’s boyfriend Ryan. The one with the chicken pox, yes.

Hugh Laurie
Season 4, “The One with Ross’s Wedding”
Snarky, sarcastic, yet stupidly brilliant doctor Gregory House appeared on FRIENDS as the man on the airplane, sitting next to Rachel when she was coming back to London. Even in this incarnation Hugh was hilariously rude to her, making his performance one of the most memorable ones.

Robin Williams and Billy Crystal
Season 3 “The One with the Ultimate Fighting Champion”
Robin Williams and Billy Crystal appeared on the screen, interrupting the six friends, and insisting that the two guest stars would love their seats in Central Perk, because they’re that special. Robin Williams’ character suspects that his wife is having a romance with another guy, who turns out to be Billy Crystal’s character.

Christina Applegate
Season 9, “The One with Rachel’s Other Sister”
Season 10, “The One Where Rachel’s Sister Babysits”

Straight from “Married With Children”, Christina gets to play one of the three Green sisters (Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Christina Applegate) and character has Emma’s ears pierced when she babysits for Rachel.

Bruce Willis
Season 6, Episodes 21, 22, and 23
Remember when Ross started dating his student Elizabeth Stevens, and her father (Bruce Willis) starts to dislike him? Yeah, those were the best episodes! Especially that part when Bruce starts singing and dancing to Love Machine, as a way of preparing himself for a night with Rachel.

Winona Ryder
Season 7, “The One with Rachel’s Kiss”
This was probably one of the most memorable episodes this show has ever aired. When Rachel admits she and Melissa (Winona Ryder) kissed in college, but Phoebe doesn’t believe this story for a second. So Rachel has to kiss Winona again, only to discover that she’s always loved Rachel. Sheesh, all this drama in a sitcom?

Paul Rudd
Seasons 9 and 10
Paul Rudd is probably the weirdest (in the best possible way) actor today, and when Mike Hannigan, his character, was first introduced as a random blind date for Phoebe, who would’ve thought they’d get married 18 episodes later? They’re both so wonderfully weird.

Julia Roberts
Season 2, “The One After the Superbowl: Part 2”
Julia played Susie “Underpants” Moss, a childhood friend of Chandler’s. Back when they were kids, Chandler pulled down her pants in front of the whole class, making her salty for life, until they meet again and she tries to pay him back with the same coin, tricking him into wearing her underwear, and leaving him stranded and butt naked.

Jason Alexander
Season 7, “The One Where Rosita Dies”
Seinfeld co-star Jason Alexander appears in FRIENDS as one of the callers, where Phoebe has just taken a job as a telemarketer. Turns out he was planning on killing himself. But, of course, Pheebz talks him out of it.

Brad Pitt
Season 8, “The One with The Rumor”
In the show Brad Pitt’s character Will Colbert, Ross’ best friend from high school, couldn’t stand Rachel, while in real life he and Jennifer Aniston were married when they filmed the episode. Definitely one of the biggest laughs on the show.
