Before They Were Famous, The Friends Cast Went To Las Vegas Together
CUTE FRIENDS NEWS ALERT. Sound the sirens, gather the kids, unplug the phone, because we have another treat for you.
Yesterday, we told you all about how the friends cast became mates IRL, and the day before, we revealed which Friend was the only one to audition twice, and now we can tell you a pretty damn adorable story about the cast's trip to Las Vegas before they were stars.
To promote the Friends reunion (which is actually his own tribute show) James Burrows spoke to the Hollywood reporter, and revealed all about the trip.
"I took them to Vegas. We ate at Caesar’s Palace in Spago. I had me and six of them and I said—I don’t know why I said this—I said, 'This is your last shot at anonymity. Once the show comes on the air, you guys will never be able to go anywhere without being hounded.' I knew the show had a chance to really take off.
"So I did that and then I said, 'Do you want to gamble?' and they said, 'Yes.' I said, 'Okay, go ahead.' And all six of them didn‘t have any money so they each wrote me checks for $200 and I cashed them. And that was it. They came back and premiered and they don‘t have a shot of anonymity anymore."
This at least helps to explain that weird Friends promo poster with the poker.
But still - what a story. Why is it making us feel so many feelings? We didn't even know we had that many feelings.
Burrows also revealed his favourite moment from Friends, saying: "One of my favorites was the prom video. For me, one of the best things is at the end, when they're all watching it, and Jennifer gets up and slowly crosses the stage to Ross. I remember [Friends co-creator] David Crane saying to me, "Isn't that too long?" But it was a great moment. You don't know what she's going to do, and all of a sudden she kisses him."
HELL YES, BURROWS. BECAUSE HE'S HER LOBSTER! And from the sounds of it, you're ours.
