Matthew Perry doesn't want to make a Friends movie in case it is terrible.
The 43-year-old actor played Chandler Bing on the sitcom during its 10-year run and while he loved his time on the show, Matthew is worried a film would disappoint the fans. When asked if a Friends movie was on the horizon, Matthew told ABC News, "I don't think so. It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good. If we did a movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it."
Courteney Cox had a "blast" reuniting with Matthew Perry on his new show.
The former Friends co-stars - who played married couple Monica and Chandler Bing on the hit sitcom - will appear on screen together once again in his new comedy series, Go On, and Courteney loved working with her one-time TV husband again while shooting her guest spot yesterday.
"Shooting GO ON today and having a blast with Matthew! (sic)" she wrote on Twitter. Courteney, 48, later posted a picture of the pair on set, adding, "My first box husband."
Matthew, 43, was also ecstatic to have his former co-star on the set of his series, tweeting, "Courteney Cox shooting Go On today! She is fantastic, obviously. And my desire to show off in front of her is back in full swing! (sic)"
Matt LeBlanc is against a Friends reunion.
The actor - whose most notable television role to date is as Joey Tribbiani on the hit sitcom - revealed that he wouldn't support the cast getting back together or agree to a movie adaptation of the show. Matt admitted that he hadn't heard of any plans to record more scenes and suggested that it would be wrong to try to recreate the series on the big screen.
"Yeah, that probably won't happen. There's no plans for anything like that. Everyone seems to be talking about that these days, but nope, no irons in the fire there," he said.
When asked whether he thought David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox collaborating again was a "bad idea," he added, "Personally I do. I think that show was all about a finite amount of time in six people's lives. Once they have moved on from that phase, that family unit has broken down a little bit. I'm sure they'd keep in touch a bit, but it wouldn't be the same."
"Thank God I didn't need the money. You know there's that saying that you make your f*** you money in Hollywood? I made that. . . . My daughter's education is paid for. Her grandchildren's education is paid for. My mother's house is paid off. My father's house is paid off. My house is paid off."

“I tell you, my ego got really bruised. When everyone did but me, that doesn’t feel good at all. There were certain years I thought, ‘Maybe I have a shot,’ like the Monica-Chandler years. But I don’t know how it happens and why or how. Maybe I wasn’t ready.”
-Courteney Cox, who won’t be winning an Emmy for Cougar Town, on being the only Friends cast member to not receive a nomination.

Courteney Cox-Arquette, best known for playing Monica Gellar on Friends, says she would be up for reprising the role but is unsure it could work.
“I don’t think it’s going to happen. Would series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman want to write it? Because they’d have to be involved,” the 45-year-old said. “I don’t know… a lot of things would have to break just right for it to work. But we’ve daydreamed about it.”
The Cougar Town star also confesses the setting would be limited, unlike fellow TV show-to-movie Sex and the City.
“I wish we could do that with Friends. The thing is, the characters from Sex and the City hopped all over Manhattan. On Friends we were always stuck in the apartment and that coffee house,” Cox explained to the Los Angeles Times.

Last night saw the premiere of Paris Hilton’s new MTV reality show (which has been getting buzz for months). Hilton chose “sixteen girls and two boys” to become her potential platonic party partner for Paris Hilton’s My New BFF. I expected that I would hate it…but I just can’t escape the magnetic pull of unoriginal, fairly bad reality TV. That’s right, I said it - I’m an MTV fan.
I was instantly under the spell of Hilton’s friend search, a premise itself which is obvious malarkey. Casting is already under way for the second season, so I’m guessing no true best friendships were forged during this first one. Or perhaps MTV, like me, can see the immediate potential of a show filled with good-looking twenty-somethings (most of whom seem as dense as bricks) that hero-worship the vapid Miss Hilton. It’s so far out of actual reality, it’s just crazy enough to be reality TV.

Well, it’s not exactly Friends, but it is still Must See TV.
According to E!, Jennifer Aniston has found a way to keep herself busy post-Mayer. The actress will soon be returning to NBC Thursdays with a guest spot on 30 Rock.
Jennifer is now the the second Friend-ly cast member to visit the Emmy-winning comedy. David Schwimmer played an eco-mascot last season during the network’s Green Week.
The role - which Aniston is currently filming - will most likely be seen in the show’s first few weeks.
Season 3 of 30 Rock premieres on Oct. 30.

If you’ve found yourself without a plan on this Labor Day Weekend, there’s a new way to keep yourself busy online.
Earlier this week, viewers of the old WB were given a free way to watch some of their now-cancelled shows. At TheWB.com, fans can access programs just like they would on any other network-sponsored site. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville, Angel, Everwood, Roswell, One Tree Hill and Gilmore Girls are amongst the selections offered.
Meanwhile, other shows that didn’t originate on the WB (but were produced by Warner Bros.) are also included on the site. That list is comprised of such titles as Friends, The O.C., Veronica Mars, Babylon 5 and Firefly.
Although the number of episodes are currently limited, fresh hours will be posted weekly.
