David Schwimmer (Dr. Ross Geller)
Ross Geller, aka The Divorcer, endeared himself to the world with his lovelorn pursuit for Rachel Green. The will-they-or-won't-they storyline had millions of viewers biting their nails for most of the show's run, but when it finally happened (spoiler!), it was finale gold. Professionally, David moved on quickly, voicing Melman, the hypochondriac giraffe for the animated box office smash Madagascar (2005), and returning to the stage in Neil LaBute's Some Girl(s). In 2006, Schwimmer made his Broadway debut alongside Timothy Daly in Herman Wouk's play The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial.
Having honed his directorial skills on Friends (he helmed 10 episodes), Schwimmer directed superstar British comedian and Band of Brothers co-star Simon Pegg in Run, Fatboy, Run. Since then, he's only directed one other film — Trust starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener. When he's not angering his Lower East Side neighbors by tearing down a historic house in order to build a mansion, Schwimmer has been developing other projects, including a return to the small screen as a struggling writer in ABC's comedy pilot Irreversible, based on an incredibly popular Israeli series.
