David Schwimmer Discusses What to Expect From 'Friends' Reunion


The 49-year-old actor says that there will be no 'Friends' reunion on February, 'it's a tribute to Jimmy Burrows.'

David Schwimmer clarifies that there will be no "Friends" reunion when the cast gathers together in February to honor legendary comedy director James Burrows. "There's no 'Friends' reunion," David told reporters during the 2016 TCA Winter Press Tour on Saturday, January 17.

"It's a tribute to Jimmy Burrows who we love and I'm just thrilled to be a part of it," he continued, "As many of us that can be there will be there and the casts of so many shows are going to try to be there-Frasier, Cheers, Will and Grace, it goes on. Taxi. This man is an incredible director who helped define situation comedy in this country in the last 40 years so I love him and I'm excited to be there."

David was sad that his co-star Matthew Perry couldn't join the "Friends" special. "I wish I could say it was going to be a reunion. [It's a] 5/6 reunion," David Schwimmer told E! News while promoting his upcoming FX series "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson". He added, "Sure I'm sad, but I'm happy for him, he's doing a play in London and it's thrilling. I did one there and it was fantastic."

David predicted that the moments will still be special despite Matthew's absence. "It's going to be a good time," he said. "We're all going to be there honoring someone we love very much, Jimmy Burrows, the great director."

The James Burrows special is scheduled to air on Sunday, February 21 on NBC.
