See ‘Friends’ Cast Reunite in Promo for James Burrows Tribute

Central Perk crew, sans Matthew Perry, deflects salacious questions from Andy Cohen

The cast of Friends, sans Matthew Perry, reunites in the promo clip for NBC’s tribute to famed TV director and Cheers co-creator James Burrows.

The 40-second spot boasts a brief moment with the Central Perk gang, in which Bravo impresario Andy Cohen asks, “Did you all sign contracts saying that you wouldn’t sleep with each other?”  

“David say something,” Lisa Kudrow quickly quipped to David Schwimmer, who offered a classic, dumfounded Ross Geller look. 

Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows will also feature appearance from the casts of Mike and Molly, Cheers, Taxi, Frasier, Will and Grace and The Big Bang Theory — just a sampling of the myriad shows Burrows has worked on during his astounding four decades in TV. The special airs February 21st at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

While the Friends reunion will feature Schwimmer, Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Matt LeBlanc, Perry missed the special because he was rehearsing for his new West End play, The End of Longing, which he also wrote. According to Time, however, representatives for the actor said he “may tape something for the tribute.”
