Oh. My. God! Maggie Wheeler Reveals Janice Almost Got Her Own Spin Off Show
Janice Litman Goralnik was easily one of the best characters in Friends.
^^^^ Just LOOK at the mega mix of her best moments above ^^^^. That hair. That laugh. THAT CHARISMA.
Joey got his own spin-off show when the sitcom ended 12 years ago (let's not talk about it, shall we?) but when Maggie Wheeler AKA Janice touched down in the UK for FriendsFest, we were reminded of how goddamn awesome her character was.
What's more, she revealed that Chandler (and Ross'!) ex-lover almost got her own damn TV show.
‘She [a TV writer] approached me – we saw each other in the States and she said, “Wouldn’t that be a great idea?”. And she had the thought to do it, but we never did,’ Maggie explained.
I would have absolutely loved a spin-off show for that character. I’m not sure why it never happened. Those things are not in my hands but I guess it was not meant to be, it didn’t happen.’
Maggie, don't use us as puppets in your theatre of cruelty like this!
‘If the right circumstance were offered and the people behind Janice asked me to do something, I’m sure I would be there in a heartbeat,’ she said. ‘It’s not too late for a spin-off!’
What's more, she said she'd have been up for appearing on Matt LeBlanc's spin-off, Joey, too :(
‘I would have loved to make a little pop-up appearance on Joey,’ she admitted.
‘That would have been great fun. I did mention it, I suggested it. But it never happened! It was a missed opportunity, I think.’
She had one more stone to turn, and I think she should have done it!’, adding that she would have liked Janice ‘to bother the crap out of him.’
People, people, people. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!
Check out all the awesome stuff that happened at the FriendsFest launch with Janice herself!
