David Schwimmer, who played Ross Geller, recently revealed on July 20’s episode of The Tonight Show that tentative plans have been made to film the Friends reunion special episode shoot in quarantine. The exceptionally anticipated special episode was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. In any case, HBO is presently pivoting plans for shooting the reunion. Read on and know more.
Tentative plans to shoot Friends reunion in quarantine
The entire Friends’ cast – David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc — was initially slated to shoot in March, yet the coronavirus pandemic shut down production of all film and T.V. ventures. Talking to Jimmy Falon on Monday, David said, “It’s supposed to happen maybe in August — the middle of August.” “But honestly, we’re going to wait and see another week or two if we all determine it’s really safe enough to do. And if not, then we’ll wait until it’s safe.” he further added.
Initially, the Friends’ reunion episode was supposed to be available at the May launch of HBO Max, which also features the complete Friends library, one of the main attractions. David Schwimmer shared that he and the entire Friends’ cast couldn’t imagine anything better than to shoot the special Friends’ reunion. The episode is considered as an unscripted conversation among the FRIENDS set on the show’s original stage in Burbank.
Ross is still “on a break”
Further talking to Jimmy Falon, the actor also revealed why he initially turned down the opportunity to play Ross Geller. He also explained where he stands on an age-old debate, Ross and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) were really “on a break”. David Schwimmer settled on the debate and answered, “It’s not so much as a question, they were on a break.” Fallon appreciated Schwimmer’s way of responding to the question.
Seriously Ross seems to be sticking on with his theory of “We were on a Break! ”
The whole debate of Ross and Rachel being “on the break” on Friends started during episode number fifteenth of the third season, titled The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break and continued all through different seasons. Here, Rachel Green accuses Ross Geller of cheating on her with the ‘copy machine girl’. Ross’ resistance was that ‘they were on a break’ and subsequently it doesn’t quantify as cheating. The famous line, ‘they were on a break’ was then cited in many events on the show. It remains to be one of the show’s most famous lines.
