Very few TV shows can make me as happy as Friends does.  It’s such a great show and I love watching it every night before bed.  It’s almost like I can’t sleep without checking in on my best pals Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Phoebe, Monica, and Joey. Love ya guys.  Anyway, it has been 20 years since it originally aired and ten years since it has ended, isn’t that crazy?  This video, created by Alltime10s, revealing ten things we may have not know about the gang.  For instance, I had no idea that Matt LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani only had $11 to his name on the day he was hired for Friends. The first thing LeBlanc bought after he received his first paycheck for the show was a hot meal, a lot different than Courteney Cox who bought a Porsche.  Matthew Perry actually pitched an idea to NBC about a group of 20-somethings and wanted to call it Maxwell’s House.  NBC turned it down because they were already working on a show similar to that: Friends.  Now this is completely mind-boggling, Courteney Cox was originally cast as Rachel.  RACHEL.  How weird would that have been? She insisted she play Monica and I’m glad she did.  It’s too hard to imagine anyone else playing Monica.  I don’t want to do it.  Also thanking my lucky stars that Jennifer Aniston turned down Saturday Night Live so she could take on the role of Rachel.  My whole life would have been turned upside down.  You know Central Perk’s greatest barista Gunther? Yeah, he was a real-life barista when he got hired and was hired BECAUSE he was a barista.  BRB, applying to all of NYC’s coffee shops.  While I’m gone, check out this great video!
